The street lights illuminate my cursed feelings
Like the thin veil you wear my patience has become torn
It's like I'm waiting for you under sinking pressure
Holding on too tightly that my arms aren't able to move

You stare at me with those transparent eyes
At that moment everything in me pauses
Like the clock tower nobody bothers to fix
The broken shards lie there screaming out, touch me

The noise of the crowd drowns out your voice
My hands reach out automatically searching
Even knowing this is you running from us
I find myself still waiting...and waiting

When my patience finally slips through the hour glass
I'll force myself to tear away from the us back then
Don't look at me with such an expression of guilt
I'm okay, you see, I've already forgotten

I'll no longer wait for you to take hold of my hand
