lyrics

I thought when this was said and done
that we'd all want to dance,
but there's been nothing here
that would make anyone feel happy.
It's just been a lot of vain attempts
to swim across such great lengths.
It's done, and nobody’s won;
I’m just getting used to it.
I'm so sorry I let this down.
I'm so sorry I let this down.
I thought that if we kept running,
we would not grow weary.
Then why does it seem that I
have come up so short of breath?
We were promised that we'd fly
on wings like eagles.
But now I'm standing on the ground
and I've just gotten used to it.
I'm so sorry I let this down.
I'm so sorry I let this down.
Mountains too high
to ever climb.
Oceans too wide
to ever swim.
Fires too bright
to ever dance in.
