Lyrics


Happens All The Time

No need to feel ashamed

There's nothing to be gained

When your dreams are in the past


Like stars, we crash and burn

Only to return

Life goes by so fast


So who is left to blame

Nothing's quite the same

We can't live in the past


I'm burning as hot as the sun

And I've only just begun

Love, it fades so fast


Sometimes I forget

All I will regret

When I leave this world behind


Sometimes I'm not sure

What I'm fighting for

It happens all the time


I know I've had enough

Maybe far too much

It's easy to be blind


When it's just me and you

I know what I have to do

I can leave this world behind


No need to feel ashamed

There's nothing to be gained

When your dreams are in the past


Like stars, we crash and burn

Only to return

Times they change so fast


Sometimes I forget

All I will regret

When I leave this world behind


Sometimes I'm not sure

What I'm fighting for

It happens all the time


It happens all the time


It happens all the time
