Tick-Tock


Tick-tock
Time just seems to go straight on by
Tick-tock
Nothing seems to be the same
Tick-tock
Ever since you left time just slips right past me
Tick-tock
The time just drifts on and on.
Tick-tock
That noise it just keeps going.
Tick-tock
Why won't it stop
Tick-tock
Why won't time just stop
Tick-tock
It's like the beating of my heart
Tick-tock
Will you just stop
Stop for just one minute
Tick-tock
Just stop and let me think for just one second.
Tick-tock
My god how can this be.
With the shattering of my heart I pray that it just stops
Tick-tock
I can no long take this madness
It just needs to end.
I need to smash it.
Smash it till it bleeds
The way you made my heart bleed
Tick-tock
I need it to end
Tick-tock
My god I'm simply going insane.
Tick-tock
Tick-tock
Tick-tock
Tick…..
SMASH

    A tad dramatic Kelsea however, if you really believe life's not worth living end it! Cheers Jerry (Report) Reply
