10000 maniacs - Few and far between

Times are far between and few I bet
When we can look upon our lives without regret
Of all the things I have done
You think I'm proud of everyone without exception

'Till you make your peace with yesterday
You'll never build a future, I swear by what I say
Whatever penance you do
Decide what it's worth to you and then respect it
However long it will take to weather your mistakes
Why not accept it?


My hands for now are tied
I'm a body frozen, I'm a will that's paralyzed
When will you ever set aside your pain and misery?

No matter how I beg, no matter how I wish or plead
You'll never be more than alive
You'll never do more than survive until you expect it
Do you want to build a world with our lives?
You better soon decide or you can forget it

My hands for now are tied
I'm a body frozen, I'm a will that's paralyzed
'Till you drop that heavy baggage you're dragging behind
There won't be room for us to both go this ride
