Today I hung my hopes from trees
and fate brought in a stirring breeze
and plucked off and scattered piles of leaves
and threw them to the ground
Today I stared into the sky
I wondered aloud and upwards, Why?
Fate stared back with unblinking eyes
And never made a sound
I listened to the wind today
And wondered where you’ve gone away
And fate sent only cold my way
and an empty space within
Today I walked out in the rain
And asked to have you back again
And fate kept pulsing through my veins
But never did give in
Today I couldn’t let you go
Tomorrow will hurt too, I know
But even though I wish it so
You aren’t meant to be mine
What can make my heart unlock?
What can ease this pain and shock?
Fate replied with the ticking clock
The only cure is time
