That's When You Know It's Time

    That's When You Know It's Time

    A song about finding one's way in life, and persevering to the end.

    When you're searching for something, but you don't know what it is
    You just know there must be a better way
    In the center of your soul lies a hunger that runs deep
    A yearning for your night to turn into day 

    And then the sun breaks through the morning mist
    And the heart no longer can resist 
    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time to give in
    That's when you know it's time to begin 

    When your hidden ghosts come back to remind you of your past
    so you long for a quiet place to live
    When the path is overgrown full of weeds and sharp thorns
    Yet inside you there is nothing more to give 
    And though the sun may shine, the cold remains
    And the heart feels bound by shackles and chains 

    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time to do what's right
    That's when you know it's time to keep up the fight 

    You saw the light once clearly, but now it seems so dim
    Yet a voice inside keeps whisp'ring you'll get it back again
    Though it’s just a faded memory, you hold on just the same
    And when you blow away the ashes the coals burst into flame 

    As your life begins to fade and your spirit wants to run
    like a thundering thoroughbred so swift
    All the choices you made All the promises you kept
    make you realize everything was a gift 

    And now the sun and moon begin to dance
    And the heart feels wounded by the lance 
    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time
    That's when you know it's time to say goodbye
    That's when you know it's time to fly
