Brett Dennen Nothing Lasts Forever Lyrics

Last updated: 12/25/2006 10:00:00 AM

I saw you spiraling
I saw you spinning back in time
through all your memories
such a quiet disease
you had forgotten me
but I'll always remember you dancing
across the kitchen in your orange handkerchief
such a quiet disease

I pray that when you dream you would remember everything
you know it all comes back to you
in one conscience dream
maybe you'd sing and put words to all the things
that you think of in a day
but forgotten how to say

nothing last forever
not even the mountains
someday they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
we all shall be blessedly released

life is so precious it's as fragile as a dream
and in a moment we all grow our wings
I wish to sing as if no ones listening
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
and I, give thanks for my dreams
you can rob me of my sight
and you can poison my blood stream
but as long as I can dream then life is worth living

nothing last forever
not even the mountains
someday they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
we all shall be blessedly released

nothing last forever
not even the sun
for all we know it could have burned out light years ago
darkness remains the hardest thing for us to outrun
