about

you can't hold time

lyrics

I’m headed north bound, back to my hometown
Haven’t seen you for a while
You say drive faster; we’ll meet at the tavern
I’ll make it in 20 more miles
Well I’ve learned a few things about heartbreak and gold rings
And I can admit you were right…you were right

Shake off the snow, bar lights turned low
You say ‘you’re exactly the same -
It’s sure great to see you, you look good, what’s new
I’m really happy you came’
Well everyone in here knows what we’re after
A long winter melting a-way

But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
Athabasa

We sift through the ashes
You make a few passes,
There’s courage in whiskey and beer
Kissin’ tears off of my face
Take me to your place
Say the things I wanna hear
Where am I going
I’m helpless and falling
Feels like I’ve just disappeared, disappeared
But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
Athabasca

Gray morning light in a small town hotel
Spills over our clothes and regrets where they fell
And it seems just a whisper could shatter the spell

But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
And we’re too far gone,
Athabasca
