Turn Back the Clock

Seconds
Minutes
Hours
Days

In my head
All the time
Is replayed

If I knew then
That would be
Our last

Night together
I would have
Let the time pass

Stayed watching you sleep
Forever

But silly me
I thought I had more time
Thought I had more moments
With you by my side

So I slipped out
Quietly
Leaving you half asleep

And that memory of you
Is burned in my brain
And I will forever keep

You safe
Inside my thoughts
Tucked away
In corners of my mind

And when I’m missing you
I can then rewind
Go back to that night
Relive that scene

If only I could
Turn back clocks
And save myself
From this lonely dream
