lyrics

How many hours in a day?
How many days 'til I'm weak?
Already wasting away
And the second hand
Ain't even touched your cheek

How many months in a year?
How many tears can I cry?
Keeping my calendar clear
In case I didn't hear
Or you didn't mean "goodbye"

Sometimes
We're tongue-tied
And the words all come out wrong
Sometimes
We're wide-eyed
And we can't see what's going on
Most of the time
I'm doing fine until our song comes on
Then I long for you, baby
And baby, you're long gone

How many nights does it take?
I lost count, but, first glance - a lot
I spend them lying awake
And holding on
To somebody you're not

Sometimes
We're tongue-tied
And the words all come out wrong
Sometimes
We're wide-eyed
And we can't see what's going on
Most of the time
I'm doing fine until our song comes on
Then I long for you, baby
And baby, you're long gone

How many hours in a day?
How many days 'til I'm weak?
Already wasting away
And the second hand
Ain't even touched her cheek
