Working hard to shift the sand
The tide is out
Before your morning faith
Turns into evening doubt
By the time you shift the sand
The tide comes in
You watch the waves roll in

Trying to forget the past
The things that were
The bad things and the could have beens
The thought it stirs
A lonesome wait, nowhere to go, all doors shut tight
Waiting for one to open wide
Open wide

Believe like a believer
Throw yourself around
Don’t be scared to change direction
When things go round and round

Balancing along life’s edge
Not falling down
Better than to sit and watch
Be safe and sound
Give up the good, face the unknown
The order’s tall
But could you risk not feeling all?
