Opportunities Lost Lyrics

2. Opportunities Lost (14:25)
[Music: Vicinity / Lyrics: Schmidt-Melbye & Olsen]

Scenes are shifting, giving no riposte
Thoughts are troubling, in confusion lost
I keep searching, screaming out in the dark
Choices given don't seem to leave their mark
Shrouded masks, the eyes of futures, see me
Still I feel that my eyes fail to see
my sights of regret

Mists keep on churning
Feet find no support
Glass half empty
Time is way too short

Why can't I just break free?
Why can't I let go?
Words are lost to me
My thoughts won't let me be free
Please stop this war inside my head!

Bridges crumble, water closes, pasts remain
Memories of what's been learned are gone

Mists clearing, time to take it slow
From the mirror stare the eyes that never know
How could time just slip away? I could not see
I have to look inside myself to save what's left of me

Dreams are unending, nothing is foretold
A child within awakens, its purpose uncontrolled
While time forever shortens, events will unfold
As rivers keep on running, our stories are told
Thoughts never mentioned, the wishes kept at bay
It seems like our choices are taken away

Rain washing down
from an open, blue sky
It helps me to see
with an unopen eye:
The past is blocked
The more I look, the less I feel I see

Dreams fading, where can I go?
Clouds are taking shapes, and I'm afraid to know
How could time slip away? I could not see
I have to look inside myself to save what's left of me

Dreams are unending, nothing is foretold
A child within awakens, its purpose uncontrolled
While time forever shortens, events will unfold
As rivers keep on running, our stories are told
Thoughts never mentioned, the wishes kept at bay
It seems like our choices are taken away

Rain washing down
from an open, blue sky
It helps me to see
with an unopen eye:
The past is blocked
The more I look, the less I feel I see

My thoughts are ranging
my mind's changing
My words, unspoken
Still I'm unbroken
For now

I try to look in
Discover what's within
open my eyes and I finally feel I see,
I feel like me
My thoughts and actions and all lost intentions
Speak to me!
I can't hear a single sound
Still noise strikes me to the ground
Open up the floodgates
and let out what I need to feel free

Dreams may end, but the future welcomes you
There's no point in chasing shadows in the dark,
no better to be staring at the sun

Rain falling down again:
Show me my own, personal reality

I choose my way

If you keep looking forwards
you may find that your future has passed you by

It is never too late to take back your life
Everything around you will try to follow you into conformity
Stand tall, and face the fact that all you comes at a cost
Opportunities lost
