    The title of this song is borrowed from a cradle of filth song with the same title. It is better then anything I could write ever if I had a thousand million billion years, but still; enjoy.

    Time is slowly ticking by
    The hours turn to days
    It doesn’t matter how hard I try
    I can’t pretend my life didn’t end
    when we took different ways

    When the love was gone I took solace in my friends
    You spend days figuring out different means to ends
    Now I look at your broken face underneath
    The gravel when your body smashed on the hard concrete

    How could you leave me this way?
    What went through your mind at that fatal day?
    How could you leap from the tower high
    I can’t escape this guild how hard I try.

    Time slowly ticks away
    The days turn into weeks
    You are gone but I want you to stay
    I lie awake in bed thinking of
    A future you turned form bright into bleak

    We where so close in a forgotten time
    Years passed by a friendship undermined
    In your sleep you slowly passed away
    Empty medicine bottles around you lay

    What possessed you to end your life like this?
    Did something happen in your life that I have missed?
    Why did you take those pills, why did you take them all?
    Why didn’t you pick up the phone to make that saving call?

    Time never seems to come to a stop
    You took your life and left us to cope
    Dead but not forgotten I sing this song so true
    Even though you are gone all I love is you.
