Fades Away

When I was just a boy
Laying in the school yard field
Staring up at Clouds
To Love was easy

But now that I'm a Man
Jaded by some wreck and ruin
Disillusioned and confused
And not appeasing

Chorus:
So Love if you were real
And not all just a hoax
Then I need you back around
Without no mirrors or smoke
Because I need something
That I can to hold on too.

You see I'm grasping at a straw now
Skating on thin ice
I need a quick fix faith
Don't cost to high a price
I'm bankrupt, broke
But I need to believe
Before everything I care for
Fades away from me

Verse:
The first time that I loved
It seemed so pure, so true
Just like those clouds of youth
So light and breezy

But somewhere along the way
Torn by my own desires
I took this simple truth
And made it uneasy

Chorus:
So Love if you were real
And not all just a hoax
Then I need you back around
Without no mirrors or smoke
Because I need something
That I can to hold on too.

You see I'm grasping at a straw now
I'm skating on thin ice
I need a quick fix faith
Don't cost to high a price
Cause I'm bankrupt, broke
But I need to believe
Before everything I care for
Fades away from me

Bridge:
Standing on the edge
Afraid I might just fall off
Or even worse go on the same
But can I pay the cost
Will I see it through now
Before everything is lost

Chorus:
So Love if you were real
And not all just a hoax
Then I need you back around
Without no mirrors or smoke
Because I need something
That I can to hold on too.

You see I'm grasping at a straw now
Skating on thin ice
I need a quick fix faith
Don't to high a price
Because I'm bankrupt, broke
But I need to believe
Before everything I care for
Fades away from me
