Verse 1

The darkness greets me with its familiar fond caress,

Yet I long for your arms, and to see the smile on your face.

I could see the light at the end of the tunnel,

But the hourglass turned upside down.

And I'm stranded on the wrong end of the funnel,

Haunted by eyes loving and brown.

Chorus

Though I know how my story ends,

Though I know pain awaits me at every bend,

Though I know my heart never mends,

I still keep hoping that fate would somehow send

Me back in time

When you were mine.

Verse 2

The silence whispers soothing promises in lonely hours,

Yet I long to let your voice rain on me like summer shower.

I could wait forever right here for your return,

But the clock ticks away my breathe.

And I brace myself for the punishment I've earned,

I know I stand close to my death.

Chorus

Though I know how my story ends,

Though I know pain awaits me at every bend,

Though I know my heart never mends,

I still keep hoping that fate would somehow send

Me back in time

When you were mine.

Bridge

And the ashes were butterflies,

Soaring freely towards the sky,

And the fire didn't catch its wings,

When I had everything.

Chorus

Though I know how my story ends,

Though I know pain awaits me at every bend,

Though I know my heart never mends,

I still keep hoping that fate would somehow send

Me back in time

When you were mine.

Outro

The darkness greets me with its familiar fond caress,

Yet I long for your arms, and to see the smile on your face.
