If tears can stop time then you’ll never leave.
But as that fateful day nears let my heart grieve.
No words can be said; no way to say goodbye.
To say that I will be alright is my heart’s biggest lie.
If tears can stop time then from me you won’t depart.
I’ll keep you sealed inside my already broken heart.
For to whom will I come running to in my times of despair,
Gone will be your loving arms and the sweet smell of your hair.
If tears can stop time then you’ll ever be at my side.
In our home and in our hearts we’ll happily reside.
Yet my heart already bleeds though you’re still here.
How much more will it suffer when you are no longer near?
If tears can stop time then you’ll be there to dry them.
You’ll calm my soul with your voice’s soothing rhythm.
Alas, my tears won’t keep you here no matter how hard I cry.
All I know is at your departure yet another part of me will die.
