it starts with one
one thing i don't know why
it doesn't even matter how hard you try
keep that in mind as i designed this rhyme to explain in due time
all i know
time is a valuable thing
watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
watch it count down to the end of the day
the clock ticks life away
it's so unreal
you didn't look out below
watch the time go right out the window
trying to hold on but you didn't even know
i wasted it all just to watch you go
kept everything inside
and even though i tried
it all fell apart
what it meant to be will eventually be a memory of a time

i tried so hard
and got so far
but in the end
it doesn't even matter
i had to fall to lose it all
but in the end it doesn't even matter

one thing
i dont know why
it doesn't even matter how hard you try
keep that in mind as i designed this rhyme
to remind myself how i tried so hard
in spite of the way you were mocking me
actin like i was part of your property
remembering all the times you've fought with me
i'm surpirsed it got so far
things arent the way they were before
you wouldnt even recognize me anymore
not that you knew me back then but it all comes back to me in the end
i kept everything inside and even though i tried
it all fell apart
what it meant to be will evenutally be a memory of a time

i tried so hard
and got so far
but in the end
it doesnt even matter
i had to fall to lose it all
but in the end it doesnt even matter

i put my trust in you
pushed as far as i could go
for all this there's only one thing you should know
i put my trust in you
pushed as far as i could go
for all this
there's only one thing you should know

i tried so hard and got so far
but in the end it doesn't even matter
i had to fall to lose it all
but in the end
it doesn't even matter

repeat til end
