Sometimes things don't work out the way you planned
Sometimes words don't say the things you mean
Sometimes you can't explain the way you feel
Sometimes when we smile we tell the same lie

With a whisper, everything you know
Is torn away and life just stops
With a whisper, everything you are
Just falls apart and dies

And all those things that you meant to change
Are thoughts lost on the way to this
And all those sorries you never said
Are words lost on the wind

Did you ever wonder about the end?
Did you ever you wish that I was still there?
Did you ever call my name by mistake?
Did you ever cry yourself to sleep?

Slowly, slowly, we lose the love that binds us
Slowly, slowly, we lose the care that holds us
Slowly, slowly, we lose the time that shares us
Slowly, slowly, we lose the heart to save us

Sometimes things are not the way they seem
Sometimes friends are not the friends they seem
Sometimes time is not the cure it seems
Sometimes love is not the love we dream of
