"The Best That's Yet To Come Will Be Worth The Worse You Left Behind"

Your mascara is running
But don't worry, it's covering the worst of your wear
Silence is soothing
Caresses the essence flowing off from your black-ridden hair

From now until forever,
He'll love you.
Time and time again,
You become tongue-tied.

And that's when running beats walking
When in doubt, it's irrelevant to stop and smell the flowers
Pick up the time from the clock
It takes more than two hands to count the hours

From now until forever,
He'll be waiting with open arms.
Like the fisherman he is,
He'll be waiting with baited breath.

Try to keep your guards up
Last thing you want is having your bubble to burst
You don't want anybody else getting the best of you
But the thing is, nobody wants the worst

From now until forever,
He'll welcome you with every start.
Like a stone he waits
Till you're by his side.
