Speeding Time Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Decades pass in just one year and your illusions disappear
And you fear the speeding time
You find a dream that you embrace, look the other way and it's a race
Trying to keep pace with the speeding time

Don't see no one dancin' on the street
And it's not easy to laugh at your defeat

But hang in, hold on, there will be relief
You gotta try, gotta try to keep your love alive
In this speeding time

Get your feet on solid ground, it's a nightmare you have found
The howling sound of speeding time
You hear the cries behind stone walls, decipher echoes down the halls
But don't you fall in the speeding time

Drifting back is no way to begin
You gotta try to find the strength within

And hang in, hold on, there will be relief
You gotta try, gotta try to keep your love alive
In this speeding time,

You never listened when the prophet said
Prepare yourself for times that lie ahead
Now that you know they didn't speak a lie
There's nothing for you to do except to try

And hang in, hold on, oh, hang in, hold on, there will be relief
You gotta try, gotta try to keep your love alive
In this speeding time, this speeding time

Gotta try to keep your love alive
In this speeding time
