Nighttime crashes down on me
I lost everything, I failed miserably.
All these things I can't complete
They encompass me, they bark at my feet.
And the days go by without warning or reply
And these moments pass me by endlessly.

If I live for a hundred years
I'll still want you here
I'll still need you, dear.
Let me whisper in your ear
Let me love you now before we disappear.

And if these things pass I would break the hourglass
Just to make the moment last for you.
Oh and if i had one wish, i would take us both from this
To a place where only you and i exist.

Oh oh oh, oh oh la la la
Oh la la la
Oh la la la da la
Oh la la la
Oh la la la da la

And if these things pass I would break the hourglass
Just to make the moment last for you.
Oh, and if i had one wish i would take us both from this
To a place where only you and I exist.
To a place where only you and i exist.

But this life crashes down on me
If i lose you this time then i lose everything
And one day, when my ship comes in
I'll miss you my darling
You were my best friend.
I'll miss you my darling
You were my best friend.
