The Longing

Words and Music by Brian Fife


This is the time; don't know how long I've got
but I don't want to waste it.
This is the time; never knew what it meant to live
but I can taste it.
'Cause too many restless nights lead to senseless days.
I want to know just what it's like at the center of this maze.

Chorus
I don't want to fade away like the setting sun.
I'm just looking for some peace inside when this day is done.
Too much time trying to have it all and feeling left with nothing.
Too much time trying to fill this space with that one thing.
The longing never goes away despite what I've been told.
I guess that's how we're made and what keeps us on the road. (Chorus)
