This clock

If I could rock and roll my pain away then why am I still sitting in this disco Hall
If I could dance like no one's watching anyway
Then why do I cry so loudly when I fall
If I can move mountains with my own hands
Why do I scream when no one's watching
If time stopped ticking and then stands
I would cry inside while everyone's laughing
I can't fight pain with this butter knife
I can't move the words like I want to
Instead I want to throw bricks at life
 That's what I want to do
It would hurt you to see me like this
Sad and broken inside
The Smiling is something I miss
The pain moves me like a tide
I miss being happy with you
I miss the life we had
But now I'm so blue
I'm not used to being this sad
I wish I could turn back the clock
And make the world spin again
But you are my rock
My one solid friend
One day you will come home
But I wish that day was here
Then I wouldn't be alone
And I wouldn't have all this fear
I want you to hold me and kiss away the pain 
tuck me under your arm
Shield me from life's rain
And keep me safe from harm
I want you to kiss me and make the world stop
Even for one small minute
With the ticking of a clock
My world is not okay without you in it
