Passing Time - Heffron Drive

You took my heart-shaped hourglass
And turned it over, over.
The further that I'm falling back,
You bring me closer, closer.

Cause I lost my way inside the truth,
Watching moments slipping through
My hands kept getting emptier each day.

You lit the match, shook me awake.
The fire grew, you fanned the flames.
It burned until the walls let in the light,

Cause we're all passing time,
Looking for the rush that makes us feel alive.
Living through the moments, trapped inside a lie.
I need you here tonight.
Show me there's more to life
And we're not passing time.

You took the armor on my chest
And tore it open, open.
You saw my heart inside the mess,
Said it's not broken, broken.

Cause I lost my way inside the truth,
Watching moments slipping through my hands
Kept getting emptier each day.

You lit the match, shook me awake.
The fire grew, you fanned the flames.
It burned until the walls let in the light.

Cause we're all passing time,
Looking for the rush that makes us feel alive,
Living through the moments, trapped inside a lie.
I need you here tonight.
Show me there's more to life.
And we're not passing time.
