Sliver In Time

from The Leaves by Short Hand



The kids all show up, like they've got no other choice
And their parents all get old just like the rolling stones
And a sliver in time flashes in their eye

All the miles you've forgot, though you've walked and walked and walked
It's really mostly not a very interesting plot
A sliver in time, all the kids roll their eyes

The girls in junior high, they still cheer on the guys
When the coach on the sideline he crouches like a tiger
Just a sliver in time to him doesn’t seem right

The kids all show up, like a feeling in the gut
And their parents all stay quiet like stones around a fire
Just a sliver in time that you toss onto the pile

In the mirror you see a beard, in a child something near
In an instant you can fear year after year after year
And sliver in time slices right through this life
