Moving On

Moments that took minutes
Are taking hours away
I'm left here to mourn
Those moments wasted on you.

Every hard earned breath I gave
Trying to keep you;
Screaming in my lungs now
As I start sinking under

All we're looking for is a chance
To be the writers
If we must be the fools
Behind the reigns.

So tell me mechanist
Is there a remedy
For all the sorrow
That I feel?

Singing this sullen lullaby
Before the curtain falls
On our life's play

Too long too short
To waste trying to hold
Dreams we didn't share
Ambition led us astray

This is a siren's call
To all of the songs
I've sung before.

Because it seems I'm left
Standing here waiting for you
To look back for me.
