Forever

Time, where did you go?
Why did you leave me here alone?
Wait, don't go so fast
I'm missing the moments as they pass
Now I've looked in the mirror
And the world's getting clearer
So wait for me this time
I'm down, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging for all your sympathy
But you (I'm just an illusion)
You don't seem to care (I wish that I could)
You humble people everywhere (I don't mean to hurt you)
Now I've looked in the mirror
And the world's getting clearer
I'll take what you give me
Please know that I'm learning
So wait for me this time
I should've known better
I shouldn't have wasted those days
And afernoons and mornings
I threw them all away
Now this is my time
And I'm gonna make this moment mine
I shouldn't have wasted those days
I'll take what you give me
Please know that I'm learning
I've looked in the mirror
The world's getting clearer
So wait for me this time


Time and I have history. So do Chantal Kreviazuk and I.
When time hadn't gone yet and I hadn't wasted those afternoons and mornings and days Chantal was there already. And Time was there already. On the back of my booklet. Inside my head over and over and over. During that one perfect daybreak back in 2005. So many times making me cry, so many times making me laugh. So many times more making me forget the rest of the world. Being with me on my birthdays. Being my company on my alone moments. After almost three years it still has the same effect on me. The song I can't say "it's one of the songs I love the most" about. Because it's the one song I love the most. From the first time I heard Time until this time, and a long time from now on too.


Have I ever mentioned that one of my life goals is to prove that Chantal Kreviazuk and I are related? Kreviazuk, Humenhuk, go, ukrainian last names!
