ACHILLES

 
 

The ground is moving fast beneath my feet
You’re an object on the horizon standing still
An infinite amount of space between us all
Like an impossible puzzle to be solved

Could I stop chasing you?
And would you stop running too?
You should slow down and give me a chance
Take my hand

And it’s not like only god knows
Or things will work out just because you say so
So light up the phoenix
And don’t take me with you

Of all other things being equal
The simpler theory is easier to see through
But nothing in this world is the same 
And I’ve lost the ability to read your face

Could I stop chasing you?
And would you stop running too?
You should slow down and give me a chance
Take my hand

And it’s not like only god knows
Or things will work out just because you say so
So light up the phoenix
And don’t take me with you

The ground feels firm beneath my face
You’re my definition, a horizon away
And it’s not like only god knows
I guess I grew tired of looking at your halo

Could I stop chasing you?
And would you stop running too?
You should slow down and give me a chance
Take my hand

And it’s not like only god knows
Or things will work out just because you say so
So light up the phoenix
And don’t take me with you
