Time Passes

by Stranger Ways

Watch it: Fractal House concert

Head in the grass, surrounded by flowers
Sun in my face, clouds above me
Sleeping for days or just a few hours
I can't remember the last time I felt so free

Time to get up, time to get going
Time to return to my family
Feels like so long, but I'm happy knowing
That I'm going home, finally

Passing the clearing by the stream where the woods end
Why is that hill no longer green? Home is just around the bend
That cottage up the road seems much bigger than before
The path turns smooth and black; my home is not there anymore

I woke up somewhere and I don't know when
Almost familiar, but how long has it been?
Is this a nightmare or could it be true?
What kind of twisted fate have I fallen into?
So many people in one place, how can it be?
I woke up somewhere and I don't know when

This is not my time; this is not my home
Cut off from my line, now I'm all alone
But I guess I'm here to stay in this place
I woke up somewhere and I don't know when

I woke up somewhere and I don't know when
Good morning Desmond, where have you been?
Is this a nightmare or could it be real?
Well, how could anybody know how I feel?
And all the people I once knew, they’re all dead
I woke up somewhere and I don’t know when

Have you heard the news? I’m not from your time
Though I feel confused, I’ve made up my mind
But there will come a day, I’ll have my revenge
I woke up somewhere and I don’t know when

I woke up somewhere and I don’t know when
Well, it might take a year - it might take ten
I’ll take this nightmare and I’ll make it mine
It was too cruel to take a kid from his time
They won’t get away with this; they’ll rue the day
I woke up somewhere and I don’t know when
I woke up somewhere and I don’t know when
