Is it okay for me to break down and cry?
Rivers of pain and sorrow,
Draining from my black eyes,
If only I could turn back time,
I’d have what was once mine,
Now I see you walking along with another guy,
So please excuse these tears,
Just save those hurtful words,
For someone else’s ears…

Now my watch isn’t working again,
I’m falling back behind,
And I’ve lost my long lost friend,
And I’m running out of time,
I’m looking back on things I’ve done,
I don’t want to look at what I’ve become,
But now you’re gone,
And here comes the things I start to hate,
Without you I’m stuck in the past,
Always 20 minutes late…

Loneliness is so alone,
Someone carve her heart from that stone,
I don’t know where to start,
When I look for the pieces of my broken heart,
I wouldn’t have missed another day,
I know it seems like a lie,
But I’ve sat here,
Counting the reasons why I should be with you at home tonight,
But it’s never gonna happen,
And it’s such a shame,
Such a shame…

Hey there, happy holiday,
It’s been a long time since I last saw you,
How’ve you been?
What have I missed?
When I could have seen,
It’s hard without you here,
I guess I’m coping with my biggest fear,
I think I love you still,
Well, isn’t that great,
Just like back then,
It’s just a little too late…
