lyrics

in ten thousand days, still i can't convey
the injustice that befell you
you were getting back, you were right on track
and it still faded out from view
i don't think there's a point worth making
to ask how it ended up askew
cause no one plans to be cut off a third of the way through

in the distant past, come and gone so fast
in a way, you were made to change
having been recast, now you'd must outlast
an albatross callously arranged
with all hopes for the best considered
most expected you were rigged to lose
but no one thought you'd be cut off a third of the way through

but the world goes and forgets
time erodes the thought of you
seems your memory falls on me

we can't fix all our mistakes
not for lack of trying to
fortunes come unguaranteed

you did what you could, it was what you should
you endeavored to keep your vow
and it's so unfair i have to declare
this the only way i know how
there's a semblance that you had failed
what an unjustifiable view
cause who could plan to be cut off a third of the way through

but the world turns and forgets
time erodes the thought of you
still your memory falls on me

i can't fix all my mistakes
even if i wanted to
there is no such guarantee

you gave your best
got that much closer
but now it's over

you weren't finished, far from it
how could they think they've the right
to cut you off the way they did?

that betrayal none will admit
show is over, cut the lights
what a life you should have lived
