You Never Know (ELEMENT)

You spend a life time finding sense
One precious piece at a time
You build your friendship fortress fence
With solid rocks one by one
Then you see it all collapse
Tumble down with the speed of light
And you wonder, is there more to life
Left with no more fight

You wake up early, the night's still young
A smell of must and rain
You fear your shadow, you choke on your tongue
Your trust thrown in vain
You try your best to play it fair
To let live and let it slide
You answer every call they make
And then they hang you dry

You never know
Even even if you're a leader
You never know
When the game is on
You never know
Who taps into your meter
You never know
When they throw you a bone

You plan your every move you make
Your entire life
No short cuts, no backdoors,
No cut and paste, no cut and dry
You give in to the race,
You try to cut to the chase
You think relationships is what it's all about
Till they knock you flat on your face

You never know
Even even if you're a leader
You never know
When the game is on
You never know
Who taps into your meter
You never know
When they throw you a bone

You never know
When you catch the fever
You never know
When you'll turn into a believer
You'll never know
If you're not a dreamer
You never know
Yeah, you're on your own
