Youthful yet so blind,
We held the greatest treasure time.
Gave our hearts and sold our souls,
Convinced each other we'd last forever.

We had all the time in the world
Yet we aged so soon,
Watching the cold steal the love from our eyes...

OH HOW IT'S TIME!

OH HOW IT'S TIME!

I'm killing time while time slowly kill us
We'll always wish we didn't waste away,
Away the days.

Were wasting away!
When our hearts were young
An our bodies were pure!
And there was fewer days gone by than to be had...

Fragile and weak we shelter from the cold.
Our Reflections have turned grey and cold.
Sea green veins under paper thin skin.
We existed but never lived...

We took time for granted and payed the price!

OH! BURY ME NOW
OH! JUST BURY ME NOW...

I'm killing time while time slowly kill us
We'll always wish we didn't waste away,
Away the days.

Were wasting away!
When our hearts were young!
An our bodies were pure!
And there was fewer days gone by
Than to be had!
We took them for granted!
So we payed the price!

I'm killing time while time slowly kill us
We'll always wish we didn't waste away,
Away the days.
