I’m not looking for something next to impossible
I can’t say that I know the proper way anymore
I am apart from my job but not my responsibility
I will do the right thing but not speak of it anymore
It seems the suffering can only stain life’s crucible
For life is hard for those who can’t take it anymore
The rest of us have not met the ends of tranquility
I’m not going to tell someone to get over it anymore
Only you know can pray long enough for renewal
We join in crisis for what we can’t take anymore
So many misty dreams we must accept with finality
Are faraway lands we cannot walk upon anymore
Even though we come to know you’re not unusual
We sing romantic songs we don’t believe anymore
But there is still a time to allow our sentimentality
To forgive those you didn't want to think of anymore
