I'm checking your pulse
I'm giving you air
But your body disagrees
And no it don't care at all
I'm wasting my time

Now your eyes roll awake
You're looking at me
You say "Darling what happened
Did I fall asleep?"
And you carry me home
Cause I know I wasn't here

I'm closing your blinds
I'm shutting your eyes
And now I
I'm afraid I have to go
Whoa

I'd sing you a song
But I'm feeling quite off
In my heart
It's occupied
And now's not the time

Let's try this again
And this time don't laugh
Cause I'm working on my sentences
I'm working on my play on words
I'll get it this time

If I am a clock
Than you are the time
I'm patiently waiting
In your out of line
And I'll be the question
If you'll be the answer

I'm closing your blinds
I'm shutting your eyes
And now I
I'm afraid I have to go
Whoa

I'd sing you a song
But I'm feeling quite off
In my heart
It's occupied
And now's not the time

If I am a clock
Than you are the time
I'm patiently waiting
In your out of line
I'm counting the times
You've lied to my face
My hands move forward
Not a second to waste

If I am a clock
Than you are the time
I'm patiently waiting
In you're out of line
I'm counting the times
You've lied to my face
My hands move forward
Not a second to waste

I'm closing your blinds
I'm shutting your eyes
And now I
I'm afraid I have to go
Whoa

I'd sing you a song
But I'm feeling quite off
In my heart
It's occupied
And now's not the time
The time

    I think the girl has messed up for the last time and now. He is wasting his time with the girl and he doesn't have any seconds to waste in his life...

    He (the person) messed up with a girl (maybe) then he has another chance and he doesn't want to waste it.

    i think hes talking to his girlfriend maybe and hes telling her its over, {but he still loves her} but shes not understanding it very well{lets try this again but this time dont laugh}.
    ooorrr
    he could be talking to his girlfriend that always hurts him and hes giving up on her but doesnt really want to but hes slowly falling out of love with her. examplesss--{i'd sing u a song but im feeling quite off in my hearttt is occupied}[him trying to move on] and {im counting the times you've lied to my face, my hands move forward NOT A SECOND TO WASTE.}[all the times shes hurt him] {im closing your blinds, im shutting your eyes and now i imm afraid i have to go}[him giving up on her]
