My heart is a terrible failing
I am just beginning to fathom
Love’s difficult concept
Swift beats are bending my mindset

It’s wasting my time
It’s wasting so much precious time
Touring white castles with other survivors
And then without warning I was…

Clinically dead for sixteen hours
Show me all the things my heart desires
Let this be the longest happy dream of my life
Clinically dead for sixteen hours
Crossing all the roads where lines began
Break my hourglass and let the sands move in time

Three short moons I survived that fatal day
But reaching breaking point,
I sleep and face the knife of fate
And my heart breathe air for the first time
Yes, my heart breathe air for the first time

A stitch in time and skin
Has changed my life and the lives of my kin
A stitch in time and skin
Has changed my life and the lives of my kin

I’m keeping my time
I’m keeping my precious little time
Touched by the Hand that’s been rocking my cradle
I’ll always remember

I was clinically dead for sixteen hours
Show me all the things my heart desires
Let this be the longest happy dream of my life
Clinically dead for sixteen hours
Crossing all the roads where lines began
Break my hourglass and let the sands move in time

No tunnel, no light
No dead love ones
Maybe I need to teach someone
That we won’t realize what we have till we lose them…
