This is a pretty, but sad, piano ballad about longing. I actually really love this song and it is probably one of the strongest on Before.

There in the midst of life
You saw it pass
Saw it move right before your eyes
and let it go

There in the midst of days
You caught a glimpse
Moving somewhere behind the trees
way too fast to see


and there must be things better than this
yes there must be things better than this, better than this


There in the midst of nights
You had a dream
Waken then to the sound of things
you don't wish to here

There in the midst of hope
You pass the day
Wishing things could be different
knowing they're the same


and there must be things better than this
yes there must be things better than this, better than this
