Awake (Moments Don't Escape)


moments don't escape
when you awake, when you awake
moments don't even break
when you are aware of them
when none of them are real
just past breaths you take
and future mistakes you might make

so make me the dream
all or nothing of what it seems
do you even know what I mean?
not if you are afraid

tomorrow isn't just a day
it's the day that never came
while you gave your now away
tomorrow isn't just a day
it's the day that never came
no matter how long you wait

moments don't escape
when you awake, you awake
moments don't break
moments don't go away
they are here, now - today
the only thing that isn't fake

so make me the dream
all or nothing of what it seems
do you even know what I mean?
you can't even scream
unless you are afraid

So don't be afraid
Afraid to care, to be small
to be a part of it all
without a care
just breathe the air
and be there

moments don't escape
awake

Hey J,

I like the "tomorrow is the day that never came while you gave your now away"

Blessings
