For all the times a new idea made no sense
For all the moments when a dream would fade
For every hour spent in vain
And every ounce of wasted pain
The slightest hint of hope is just another ruse
For all the times a memory held one more truth
Then history would never be so wrong
If every minute passing by
Takes one more piece of every lie
The story that remains is just another ruse
How does the time go by so fast?
What are the phases of the moon?
Who knew it wasn't meant to last?
Who knew it wouldn't end so soon?
For every hour passed into another day
And every second ticking one by one
I leave another clue behind
To let you seek what I can't find
And maybe you can see right through this final ruse
I know the time, it moves so fast
I know the phases of the moon
I knew it wasn't meant to last
I knew it wouldn't end so soon
What's one more minute in the greater scheme?
What's one more minute in an endless dream?
What's one more minute in the race for time?
This moment here with you was never mine
