she's got dreams to spare
in the high beams of her stare
she caught me unawares
pulling lifetimes from the air

oh sarah, how does this one end?

from the edges of her mind
crystalized in time
shadows spring to life
to dance in the twilight

oh sarah, how does this one end?

never met a girl who believed like this
never knew a soul living on the edge
never heard a sound pounding in my chest before
oh sarah

never had a dream 'til I followed it
found I was asleep in the life I lived
awakening in me is the seed you planted there
oh sarah

I put my dreams away
shelved for another day
a life complete to waste
and watch my reflection age

oh sarah, now's the reckoning
