Full Speed Ahead




There’s something hanging in the air

A kind of weight that we both share

But I can’t regret what we haven’t done yet

so stick with me and we’ll get there

I’m moving full speed ahead

despite this fever in my head

I’m picking up what I once put down

Don’t want to lose what I’ve found

Round and round with you I go

In a kind of never-ending show

But I won’t relent

and the time that I’ve spent

with you will surely be like gold

All these aches they fade with time

they disappear between each rhyme

and when I least expect

to see the imperfect:

all that sorrow turned sublime
