Staring at the clock, hung on the wall,

Wondering how long, I've looked like a fool,

I think of the pointless times that we had,

Those Wasted Seconds, that left me so sad.

.

I swallowed your lies, along with my pride,

Wiped off those tears, from the times when I cried,

For all along, I was a puppet on a string,

Those Wasted Seconds, when you were the king.

.

But now I feel, I must take a stand,

As the time ticks away like the minute hand,

I hear you arrive, and I beckon you in,

Forget those Wasted Seconds, this is my time to win.

.

Tearing my eyes, from that clock on the wall,

I look into yours, I prepare for their fall,

As calmly, and softly, I begin to say,

No more Wasted Seconds, it must be this way.
