I watch, helpless as tears pour from unguarded eyes
I watch as the water runs fast
I watch as a heart slowly dies
I watch reruns of the past.
I can't bear to see the sorrow
The hurt behind the mask
I hope things will be better tomorrow
But I'm afraid to ask
I try to put together a shattered dream
Try to save a life
But things aren't always what they seem
Deceit and lies run rife.
I wish I knew a way to turn back time
A way to stop what's happening now
There's always another mountain to climb
The question is how?
My time has past
My race is run
I managed to last
My battle is won.
