The Severed Branch

By Bruce Clifford

There's only so much you and I could take
Leaving on time to decide ones fate
If youíve made a plan then hurrah I know itís great
Thereís only so much you and I can take
Before we break
Before we break

Thereís only one song that matters where we stand
Yesterdayís gone, but tomorrow is where we could land
If you show up empty handed then hurrah I know you tried
Thereís only one way out, thatís to leave with your pride

The severed branch is the quiet before the dream
The severed branch is the panic before the extreme
Iíve told this story so many times
I know youíve heard this before between the truth and the lies
The severed branch is our future in disguise

Thereís only so much you and I could take
Playing the odds and testing what we could shake
If your plans fall though, donít worry, this is not goodbye
There are too many reasons to not to try

The severed branch is the quiet before the dream
The severed branch is the panic before the extreme
Iíve told this story so many times
I know youíve heard this before between the truth and the lies
The severed branch is our future in disguise
