Ever Goes Away

This song was created for Game of Bands round 116 : "Randomly Generated"

Lyrics:

Verse 1

Tell me, do you accept your fate and fold
Or take control and take your place among the brave and bold
Wish I could tell you how to face the cold
But the brave freeze just as easy as the craven souls

So heads up, it gets narrow on the cutting edge
One wrong step, one slip you can lose your head
Fate’s so fickle in the way it bends
Can’t promise it ends well but I can say it ends


Chorus

A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever fades away

A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever goes away

Verse 2

At the end it counts for nothing but it’s all that we’ve got
Just a race against the clock that we’ve already lost
Fleeting as the sand slipping right through your hands
Just a story for a traveler in an antique land

You can rage with all your might against the coming dark
Or use your time to leave a legacy and make a mark
But realize either way you’re just buying days
Finding ways to feed the blaze until the fire fades

So don’t waste your time afraid to fail
Or go seeking immortality to no avail
‘Cause there’s no holy grail at the end of this quest
Just the test of whether you can give each day your best


No escape except the choice in how we face it
Every win and every loss, nothing matters ‘til you make it
So I can’t tell you what’s worth fighting for
I can only tell you that the choice is yours

A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever fades away

A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever goes away

Bridge

Live for today or you’ll never live
Give it all you have to give
No more excuses not to try
Stand up and say this day is mine

Chorus
A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
(Nothing lasts, we become the past)
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever fades away
(Falling down, through the hourglass)

A chance to soar
Or hit the floor
In time it turns to gray
(Nothing lasts, we become the past)
Each fall and rise
Cut down to size
It ever goes away
(Falling down, through the hourglass)
[Exit]
