lyrics

Once in a while when the sky opens up and all the rainclouds vanish in thin air.
Should I say goodbye or should I wave hello to all the future has to hold for me.

Faster than a cannonball. Rolling with the thunder, into the darkness of the night.
You just kind of wasted all of my precious time like shadow puppets dancing in the light.

Looking through the backyard of my life I can see that I only had my mind to lose.
Growing up and falling down, I guess I learned the hard that I’m free to be anything I choose.

Faster than the speed of light. Blowing like a hurricane, only to be swallowed by the sea.
You just kind of stole secrets from my wishing well without a second thought for me.

Every now and then when my dreams run away and the moon eclipses the sun.
I hope I find the courage and the strength to fight for my freedom and all of my beliefs.

Faster than a cannonball. Rolling with the thunder, into the darkness of the night.
You just kind of wasted all of my precious time like shadow puppets dancing in the light.

When my tomorrows outnumber my yesterdays and memories are dirt tracks in my mind.
I’d rather be a signpost in a world full of weather vanes in so easily swayed by mankind.

Faster than the speed of light. Blowing like a hurricane, only to be swallowed by the sea.
You just kind of stole secrets from my wishing well without a second thought for me.
