It seems as if this time never ends,
When your beauty makes my heart bend.
I’ve been popping pills in the night
Because I no longer have my source of light.
Counting black sheep until dawn
You always annoy me when you yawn.
Do you care when you see me cry?
Or do you think it’s all a lie?
I’ve been trying to think this through.
But with each passing day my time is due.
Would you care if I confessed
That your love makes me feel blessed?
I have this desire to die for you.
But I’m not sure if you’ll want me to.
And not because I think you’d care,
But rather because you’d feel bare
To know that your careless love
Has caused my state of despair.
It seems as if this time never ends.
When will your beauty make my heart bend?
Before it all falls apart,
And I’ll have to crawl back to the start
Trying to love you again,
Because this time never ends
As my heart will always bend for you.
