Time ticks down
I feel numb to the change
Then with shock and shrill alarm
I awaken
Startled by the sound
Reality feels strange
Without you as the glue
Now Iím breaking

The hole inside my soul
And the dark within my heart
The roadmap of a journey
Iíve forsaken
Thought that once I cried
There would be a change of tide
Iíd be strong enough to fight
I was mistaken

Can you hear me
When Iím screaming at the sky
Can you feel me
Feel me wither as I die
Do you see me
As I stumble through the dark
Your absence stains my path
Just like a blood mark

Sand slips through
Though the days never do
As the space in the hourglass
Is taken
I watch it slip away
And realize too late
My grip on happy endings
Has been shaken

The movie in my mind
That plays behind closed eyes
Is a silent motion picture
Without screens
Itís all in black and white
With wavy little lines
And Iím not even sure
What the gray means

Time has been ticking
But the movie replays
The love story leaves
My heart aching
Nothing seems to change
Reality feels strange
I remain in the darkness
As dawnís breaking
