lyrics

Why don't you ask me again?
I said once more
She just stared at the ceiling
And I at the floor

Suspended in mid-air
holding close
All that's left between us
is what we wanted most

I still don't know
if we were not meant to be
But time always shows us
what we were meant to see

But the ticking clocks have gone silent
So we have to figure it out on our own

And so she asked me again
but just once more
The answer fell from my mouth
and onto the floor

And the love that we had just fell silent
And the love that we had we were left to feel on our own

like two ticking clocks slightly out of time
We'd crafted a new heart just beating like a chime
And that was the beginning of the life we had
And that was the beginning of the life we had

like two ticking clocks slightly out of time
We'd crafted a new heart just beating like a chime
And that was the beginning of the life we had
And that was the beginning of the life we had

But the ticking clocks had gone silent
So we have to figure it out on our own

I still don't know
if we were not meant to be
But time always shows us
what we were meant to see
