Look up,
it's here
One day
it's clear

Never noticed before
Now it's easy to see
We're drifting apart
Sailing in the Black Sea

As time goes by,
we move on
We're going our separate ways
But I have a change in heart

Rewind time
Take it all back
It's gone by so fast
Racing towards our fate

Where was I
on the cold winter days?
Could that really have been
two thousand and eight?

Where was I
when the autumn leaves fell to the floor?
Could that really have been
two thousand and four?

Where was I
when the smoke blocked the sun?
Could that really have been
two thousand and one?

Where was I
during the clear summer skies?
Could that really have been
nineteen ninety-nine?

Where was I
during the nineteen ninety-eight storms?
Could that really have been
the year I was born?

It passed in a blur.
Those moments are gone.
But can you blame me
for wanting to keep one?

My choices are clear.
My intelligence is fine.
But can you blame me
for wanting just a little more time?
