Four Letter Word - Unconditional lyrics

Now I see it, slip slipping away,
Sometimes I notice, just how I have aged.
Drawing conclusions, in the lines on my face,
Run out of fingers trying to count the days.
You know what really bothers me the most,
I never could allow anything too close.
Keep my distance, far behind the lines,
Everything's taken, taken away...

In time, I will lose everything I care about.
In time, either you or me will have to learn to live without.
In time, the coins will overflow the wishingwell.
In time, maybe this will all cease to be so unconditional.

Unconditional, unconditional.
Unconditional.

Not so long ago it all seemed viable,
But now my theory's so unreliable.
There's never any doubt, you can fulfill your dreams,
When indestructible, teenage machines.
I'm still angry, but now I realise,
I see the cycle slowly turning in my eyes.
It's irretrievable, so easily won or lost,
Like terrafirma, lying dormant in permafrost.

In time, I will lose everything I care about.
In time, either you or me will have to learn to live without.
In time, the coins will overflow the wishingwell.
In time, maybe this will all cease to be so unconditional.

Unconditional, unconditional.
Unconditional.

You can only hold on for a short time
'Til your fingers will lessen their grip on the twine.
Tired muscles find it hard to cope,
Before you know, you're at the end of the rope.
There's never gonna be near enough time,
You're always gonna be cut down in your prime.
I can't afford to let let myself forget
The wheel's in motion, the hourglass is set.

In time, I will lose everything I care about.
In time, either you or me will have to learn to live without.
In time, the coins will overflow the wishingwell.
In time, maybe this will all cease to be so unconditional.

Unconditional, unconditional.
Unconditional, unconditional.
