failure lyrics – sixpence none the richer

failure

the clock in the hall is louder now
i don’t know what to do about it
as i hear it make its metronomic rounds
there’s nothing i can do about it
with its constant tick, like the footsteps of someone approaching

i don’t want to meet
she’s a messenger with the message my journey is over
and i failed to make it

time’s not my friend anymore
my dreams at night are stranger now
and i don’t know what to do about it
in every scene you’re taken away from me
and there’s nothing i can do about it

i am running from the footsteps of someone approaching
i don’t want to meet
she’s a messenger
with the message my journey is over
and i failed to make it
time’s not my friend anymore
