Song lyrics: Running Short on Life

Running Short on Life

Long over and nearly forgotten; almost like it never even happened
Only we both know that it did
The past is reaching out through memories; will I become the person that I want to be?
Never sure how much I fit in

We’re running out of time. We’re running short on life.
We’re searching for a reason, but we’re still confused tonight.
We’re running out of time.  We’re running short on life.
We need to feel whole again, but still empty deep inside.

Eyes meet, if only for a moment; I turn away before I start to choke up
Believe me when I say that it hurts
I feel the darkness surrounding me; moving forward, sometimes I want to scream
I light a fire just to watch it burn

We’re running out of time.  We’re running short on life.
We forgot our reasons why and our hearts are drained tonight.
We’re running out of time.  We’re running short on life.
We’ll never understand what we lost that winter night.
