I missed my second chance- it flew right by,
and as another tear falls from your eye
you've made your call... You've made "goodbye".

Well, I am just so happy to have known you-
to have shown you all my life,
wrapped in this moment here forever.

Wake me up and make me see
if I am loved, whatever that may mean
because I don't think I know but I still care.

All I know is that

if it happens this way
and if you leave me today
it will be forever,
and I know what that means forever...
It means we'll never be together.

And there is nothing to say.
The chips will fall as they may,
they will stay forever.
Do you think I will find another
timeless love while all my time's with you?

Make your mind up-
you're just holding me here,
you're taking time up,
but I don't mind as long as we're
the only things locked on your mind-
in there I'm yours and you are mine,
and everything is as it should be.

Call your own bluff-
it's only truth that space will never be enough
to keep our thoughts from mixing.
Time is getting smaller
and it's clear now that all we're here
for is holding on.

I think you should let me know,
because I have never been a good sport
at this game that you call "letting go".
I think you should show
me that I'm not another number
in that cellular phone underneath your bed

    General CommentThere are some things I really like about this song, and other things that ruin it for me.
    First, the things I hate.
    "Do you think I will find another
    timeless love while all my time's with you?"
    No, bad line. Take it out. Horrible.
    "I missed my second chance- it flew right by,
    and as another tear falls from your eye
    you've made your call... You've made "goodbye".
    Well, I am just so happy to have known you-
    to have shown you all my life,
    wrapped in this moment here forever."
    This whole beginning is horrid. Corny, and something that would never be said in any normal conversation.


    Now for the redeeming parts.
    "Wake me up and make me see
    if I am loved, whatever that may mean."
    "Call your own bluff-
    it's only truth that space will never be enough."
    Both very good. Good job, Ronnie.

    General CommentOkay, sydney is rad..

    This is not your song. You did not write it. He did. This is Ronnie Day's song. He wrote it because it obviously means something to him.
    Just because it's a line in a song. doesn't mean it has to be in a normal conversation. I bet you feel plenty of things in your heart for certain people that you could not just up and say in a normal conversation.

    stupid bitch.
    you're not rad.
    you are judgemental and can't see genius if it slapped you in the face.



    Now, that outta the way.
    This song is beautiful. that's it.
    Then ending gives me chills. I love it because i guess you could say i relate..
