The distance and my hearts to sand
Flowing through the hour glass
Time to let go of all we know
And break our hearts in stride.

I need you now more like yesterday
The last day I could see you smile.
For the last time turn out the lights
My life on standby.

So standby and watch
This fall away and fall apart.

Just say that it's over,
It's over and she's gone.
(now...she's...gone)

Don't worry he said,
And she's not coming home.
(she's...not...coming...home)

It's over and she's gone.

The distance and my hearts to sand
Flowing through the hour glass.
I've thought of pieces, I can't let go
Of all the times I never said goodbye.

Just say that it's over,
It's over and she's gone.
(now...she's...gone)

Don't worry he said,
And she's not coming home.
(she's...not...coming...home)

It's over and she's gone.

Wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!
Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up! wake up! wake up! wake up!
Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die

Wake up now it's over...just tell me it's ok to die
