lyrics

can't freeze time that severs
tomorrow from yesterday
can't stay put forever
with everything in its place

can't build a life on sand
the hourglass is turned again
can't stick with a good hand
when playing cards with fate

if this is all there is
don't let it slip
if this is all there is
well, this is it

waiting by the motorway
nothing will ever be the same
the sirens are drawing near
we surrender to the suddenness

can't make a plan that's fail-safe
it could crumble just today
can't find a way to delay
the things that can't be escaped

can't speak a truth that says it
in an all-encompassing way
can't even wholly imagine
in how many ways all this could change

if this is all there is
don't let it slip
if this is all there is
well, this is it

waiting by the motorway
nothing will ever be the same
the sirens are drawing near
we surrender to the suddenness

if this is all there is
nothing will ever be the same
if this is all there is
we surrender to the sudden----

crying by the motorway
hold me, it will be OK
life can be so very frail
we are the debris by the motorway

if this is all there is
nothing will ever be the same
if this is all there is
we surrender to the suddenness

if this is all there is
we surrender to the suddenness
if this is all there is to it
we don't know shit
