Day after day, night after night the clock ticks on bye.
I sit and wonder if my life was all a big lie.
There’s been some good times and some bad.
A lot of happy memories and some really sad.
I feel in love with a girl that filled my heart.
With pure ecstacy, filled with happiness from the start.
I never wanted our love to end.
Was it a lack of communication or a new found friend.
Does it really matter either way
Cause my heart still hurts today.
A huge part of me is gone forever now.
One day we will reunite this much I vow.
Maybe I’ve really lost my mind
Cause my wound is not healing with time.
Eternal pain I will live with until the day I die.
This is why I sit at night and listen to my heart cry.
One day I might get over the love I’ve lost.
Until that time, I’ll be searching at all cost.
My love for Mary will always pour like rain.
Everyday that goes bye I wonder who’s to blame.
Maybe someday, somebody will answer my question.
Is love just a burden or is it a blessing…
