Time and space has sunk between,

Our lives come to view like a movie on a screen.

Broken love and running away,

Avoiding all that you had to offer.

What you had to offer?

What you had to offer was there.

But I'm not there, and you don't care.

What have I felt?

You're just a lost effort, broken down and breaking bones.

Your touch cuts like a knife,

Your eyes hurt like an open wound.

Failed at the moment, I lost my chance.

Reopen the wounds, I left you to suffer.

But now I'm here and I know I'm too late.

Lost in the past, release the present, unfold the future.

Share the kisses, avoid the touches, lose ourselves.

Remove our hate, discard the fight.

Say I love you once more.

And you're not there.
