Lyrics


It Won’t Be Mine
Amy Fairchild, So Fair Music/BMI

I can swing around the word
Faster than the other girls
Just outside your field of view
But what am I running to?

And you, you sit so patiently
There’s not a drop left in the sea
Can’t you see the open door?
What are you waiting for?

I know that you’re out there
But you sure take your time
I can hear a voice calling to you so sweetly
But it won’t be mine

I’ve been thinking about time going by
It once moved so slowly
But now it flies
And all the things that I thought I’d be
Are coming right down to me

I know that you’re out there
But you sure take your time
I can hear a voice calling to you so sweetly
But it won’t be mine

And down the hallways you can hear the refrains
They sing hush now and do not cry
Birthday balloons and white paper planes
Pass me by

In the end it’s all the same
You walk, you run, you lose, you gain
And it goes on, yeah it’s so divine
That I got nothing but time

I know that you’re out there
But you sure take your time
I can hear a voice calling to you so sweetly
But it won’t be mine
They say that true love is so hard to find
I can see the sun coming up on a sweet face
But it won’t be mine
