Lyrics

These days are blooming trees Hours branches, minutes leaves Moments flowering sweet and ripe I plucked one for my own And another, and some more And decorated myself in blossomed time I inhaled in the moments, pressed my face in deep Let a while pass me by, exhaled with dew upon my cheeks I couldn't help myself when the seconds smelled so sweet With steady hands I stole a moment more than I should keep I know these moments cannot stay, they wilt and they decay A scent enjoyed in gentle breezes passing by But my thieving ways are here to stay So I'll be making minute hand bouquets Bound with knowing smiles and with twine I'll be wherever you always found me Living in past tense, counterclockwise We catch ourselves inside our heads Asking if we remember when And the details blur a little worse each time So who could blame me for attempting To retain those moments tempting us With an amber snapshot of a former life? Nostalgia melts my edges And I refine my shape in turning counterclockwise I'm living in the moment, just maybe not this current one I'd only just got settled as my time was passed and done And as moments stream on by I hold on for dear life Searching for a fixed place to stand in the shifting sands of time And I will not fade to softer lights Nor dissolve before your very eyes I will simply be and then I won't I swear I've made my peace I've just so truly loved to be And so pinched some moments more than I was owed I know these moments cannot stay, they wilt and they decay A scent enjoyed in gentle breezes passing by But for a little longer I will be wherever you always found me Living in past tense, counterclockwise I know these moments cannot stay
