Chasing You

Like the tiger to chase after the gazelle

The wolves chase after the hare

But a moment away from chasing this dream

Is just something I couldn't bear

But a wise old man once told me



"The chase is better than the catch

Don't let those memories show

In the bed of my universe you lay sleeping

But here I'll have to let you go"



In the autumn leaves that surround her

I believed I could touch her face once more

Fate had come back around to test me

Just once again, to settle the score

So the stars never came falling

But the years came rolling by

I thought that she was my calling

But I had to release that little butterfly



"The chase is better than the catch

Don't let those memories show

In the bed of my universe you lay sleeping

But here I'll have to let you go"



Yea I may have the mark of the genius

But I wear the crown of the fool

The fire just kept on roaring

But now the embers have cooled

I keep on patiently waiting

For a dream that never comes to be

As tight as you can, just grab my hand

Stare at the irises of my soul, but you'll never understand



"The chase is better than the catch

Don't let those memories show

In the bed of my universe you lay sleeping

But here I'll have to let you go"





"The chase is better than the catch

Don't let those memories show

I know I'll never hold you in my arms again

But I just can't let you go"



You may never see this side of me, but I'll be here to understand

When everything about me confuses you, I just want you to know who I am
