Every fight needs mending
Every start has an end
Like the sunrise and the sunset
That's just how it is
Love on borrowed time
Will never be yours nor mine
I need you like you need me
The way we ought to be

[Chorus]
Oh, it's good to be true,
If our hopes and dreams come true
Wish that I had more
Of this borrowed time
If only it would last a lifetime

This bitterness inside
Is an empty space I hide
It never satisfies
Living my life in a lie
Love on borrowed time
Will never be your nor mine
I'll just close my eyes
And it will be alright

[Repeat chorus]

[Bridge]

Now that you've gone away
You seems so close but you're
Miles and miles away

[Repeat chorus except last line]
[Repeat chorus]

    It's a limited time for you to spend with a very special person. Unfortunately, it won't last a lifetime. Reminiscing is all that you can do.

    Meaning to say everything we had in this life are only for the meantime and not owned by us, we can only enjoy the life we have even now but we don't have control to bring the past to the present time.
