Times Like These

(david m. bailey)
In times like these we wonder if it's possible to hide
The storm front moves so quickly, the canyon seems so wide
It's simply too damn easy to miss the forest for the trees
In times like these

In times like these we look upon what's on the other shore
But the river's running madly, like it's never run before
There's a hurricane behind us where once was just a breeze
In times like these

We cannot be the first; we will not be the last
to cling to the familiar and second guess the past
We're frozen in the headlights, so much light it's hard to see
In times like these

In times like these we tremble, each tear burns like a poison
Each friend becomes a savior, never mind the reason
The ghosts return to haunt us, taunt us to break free
In times like these

In times like these we question when and where the wound began
We agonize the losses and mend the broken hand
But with healing comes renewal, and a rebirth of the dream
All is what it is, and not what it may seem
There is no other path but to press on, to believe

in times like these......
