about

I love the chorus! It's so light and fun, yet so thought provoking and meaningful. The verse's have such a deep relevant meaning when you look closely. Don't miss it!

lyrics

Verse 1:
I reach, I grab
When I close my fist
Then it’s air I have
“Now” is a fad
But it’s just the latest
Playlist
Tangerines in spaceships
I’ve wasted
Countless chances
Time eludes me
And my advances
Awkward silence
And awkward stances
Then
She passes by and glances
Taken for granted
The moments are
Sorta like fireflies
Caught in a jar
They light up the dark
Like specks in the night
But each one fades
Or escapes by flight
Gotta make my flight
Cause I dare I miss it
My chance could be
Gone in an instant
All outta breath
When I start my sentence
The flight attendant says
“Stop and listen…”

Chorus:
Who made you think you had
Had a little more time
When you didn't have time
Would tell me?
Who made you think you had
Had a little more time
When you didn’t have time?

Verse 2:
Last call
Heartbeat’s raised
Tenderly clutchin
To my briefcase
Voice on the intercom
No repeat
Meander my way
To my window seat
I’m off my feet
I’m on my mark
Strapped in tight
When the countdown starts
The ground now sparks
And the ship just lifts
I’m watchin the Earth
And its shift-less-ness
Woulda just missed this
If I slowed my pace
Who made me think I had
Time to waste
But I fly by grace
And fall by might
Cause I walk by faith
And not by sight
My time here’s precious
It’s just a loan
And Earth’s just a stop
To get me home
Seconds evaporate
Time ticks on
Life goes light speed
Then it’s gone

Chorus:
Who made you think you had
Had a little more time
When you didn't have time
Would tell me?
Who made you think you had
Had a little more time
When you didn’t have time?
