I hear the clock strike three
My eyes are closed but I still see
See your face looking back at me
Your lips moving constantly

The words say there is nothing left
As you gently pull your hand away
You try to smile but there are only tears
Oh, how I want to forget that day

We once talked about forever
Now I realize there will never
Never be another night
Of us laying till the morning light

The pain is far too deep
So strong I cannot weep
Your green eyes simply staring
God, please let me fall asleep

The sound of a closing door
Leaves me without a heart
I crawl out of bed restless
Nothing left to live for

The author's comments:
I think everyone has had this feeling, especially as teenagers. In our early relationships we sometimes found out love hurts, and this conveys that message.
