If my love could tame the tick and the tock

I’d suspend the seconds I shared with you

Then maybe I wouldn’t resent the clock

Maybe I’d escape the pain that ensued

If my love could pause the pendulum’s pace

Or manipulate how the minute moves

I would destroy time’s oppressive constraints

And linger in limitless life with you

But we are hostage to hollow hours

and time is a thief we are tethered to

The clock’s cruel curse cannot be countered

An eternal force no soul can elude

If only my love could turn back the time

I would stop the seconds and save your life.
