"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Nine Days - If I Am

So you’re standing on a ledge; it looks like you might fall so far down—or maybe you were thinking about jumping…
but you could have it all—if you learned a little patience..
for though I cannot fly, I’m not content to crawl.
So give me a little credit; have in me a little faith—I wanna be with you forever, if tomorrow’s on too late..
but it’s always too late when you’ve got nothing, so you say…
but you should never let the sun set on tomorrow before the sun rises today.

If I am another waste of everything you dreamed of, I will let you down. If I am only here to watch you as you suffer, I will let you down.

So you’re walking on the edge, and you wait your turn to fall, but you’re so far gone, that you don’t see the hands upheld to catch you.
And you could find the fault in the heart that you’ve been handed..
For though you cannot fly, you’re not content to crawl.

And it’s always too late when you’ve got nothing—so you say.
But you should never let the sun set on tomorrow, before the sun rises…

The answers we find are never what we had in mind, so we make it up as we go along… you don’t talk in dreams, I won’t mention tomorrow; we won’t make those promises that we can’t keep:
I will never leave you; I will not let you down.
