Todd RundgrenParallel Lines

Kindred spirits moving along the spiral I can see you up on another level It's too great a fall And I can't reach you to pull me higher But I don't seem to get much closer or any more far What would you tell me, if I could hear you speaking? If you could touch me, how would I know the feeling? I just can't imagine But I try to do it anyway I wish I was moving faster, I wish you'd drift back But it just wasn't meant to happen Very soon I'll have to Face the fact Some things never come together Parallel lines running on forever And you can't turn back There is never any starting over Parallel lines never do cross over It's a challenge Gotta make myself remember Facing the truth, well, that doesn't mean surrender What is bravado and how much is a force of will? I know that the world is full of opposites that attract But unless we ignore the physics Very soon we'll have to So I send you the gift of empathy If you'd once in your life acknowledge me I have visualized so thoroughly That when I think of me I think of we Can't face the truth It means that we must surrender Understanding won't satisfy the hunger It whittles away at the destiny we fulfill And like an animal running wild You can't call it back And it's just gonna make it harder When it's finally time to It's like a train that's stuck running on a track Parallel lines running on, running on, running on © 2018
