Nothing Lasts Forever - Brett Dennen

I saw you spiraling
I saw you spinning back in time
Through all your memories
Such a quiet disease

You had forgotten me
But I'll always remember you dancing
Across the kitchen in your orange handkerchief
Such a quiet disease

I pray that when you dream
You would remember everything
You know it all comes back to you
In one conscience dream

Maybe you'd sing and
Put words to all the things
That you think of in the day
But forgotten how to say

Nothing lasts forever
Not even the mountains
Some day they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
We all shall be blessedly released

Life is so precious
It's as fragile as a dream
And in the moment we all grow our wings

I wish to sing as if no one's listening
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
And i give thanks for my dreams

You can rob me of my sight
And you can poison my bloodstream
But as long as i can dream
Then life is worth living

Nothing lasts forever
Not even the mountains
Some day they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
We all shall be blessedly released

Nothing lasts forever
Not even the sun
For all we know it could have burned out light years ago
Darkness remains the hardest thing for us to out run
