a million years lyrics – david gray

“a million years”

flat out i’m running
through walls of concrete
far from my spirit
a lifetime of hate
it shown on our faces
a million years

screeching and yelling
don’t hear no sound
blue light of heaven
rising up from the ground
it shown on our faces
a million years

the fear coming over
the death taking hold of me
preparing my face
for the gates of eternity, yeah

fastening my ankles
strapping my wrists
taking my someplace
where pain don’t exist
it shown on our faces
a million years
a million years

the fear coming over
the death taking hold of me
preparing my face
for the gates of eternity, yeah

like frost on the branches now
like foam on the surf
there’s nothing i [?]
there’s nothing i’m worth
shown on our faces
a million years
a million years
a million years
a million years
