The clock ticks away the seconds

Minutes, years

That I don't get to spend with you

Why are the hours so endless

When I need them to end so soon

The sun set ticks away the dusks,

The dawns, the noons

They count every lonely night

That I'll never spend with you

My fingers tick away the miles you've walked

They stick up all too often

I've used too many hands to count

Especially because those fingers were once used for you

To count the children we'd have

My blinks tick away the tears

Of the years I've stared at the phone

Waiting is always the hardest thing

Waiting for something that will never come

My heart beat ticks away my life

And for those who say it is a myth

A thousand years is so dreadfully long

If you have no one to spend it with.
