save one lyrics – story of the year

i took precious life for granted
in the time yours was in bloom
so without it, i’m here in my life’s afternoon

time always seems to take forever
when everything you see is new
but in a moment i found that that’s not always true
not always true

’cause the morning’s over now
and the search for higher ground
so much easier said than done
you’re not here
and the morning’s come and gone
standing here under the sun
so much easier said than done
when we’re all here
save one

in our young mind it was easy
to plan a lifetime like a day
just as easily to find it all taken away (taken away)
and now i stand in devastation
where my world crashed down today
never thought that i’d hear the last words you would say

but the morning’s over now
and the search for higher ground
so much easier said than done
you’re not here
and the morning’s come and gone
standing here under the sun
so much easier said than done
when we’re all here

save one
save one

and i *ssumed you’d always be there
now the moment that you’ve fell
and tomorrow bids farewell (farewell)
what you left behind is greater
(than a photograph can tell)
the memory has failed
though your time’s done with the sun
there’s still a million things unsaid and done
but the morning’s over now
and the search for higher ground
so much easier said than done
you’re not here
and the morning’s come and gone
standing here under the sun
so much easier said than done
when we’re all here

but the morning’s over now
(you’re not here)
and the search for higher ground
(but you’re not here)
and the morning’s come and gone
standing here under the sun
so much easier said than done
when we’re all here
save one
save one
save one
