When The Clock Strikes Midnight

When the clock strikes midnight,
Change will happen.
The horror comes out.
My magic expires.
My life so pretty suddenly turned around.
Promptly sprinkled with ashes to cover the sparkles.

When the clock strikes midnight,
I’ll slowly start to scrub away the hate.
My tears make stains on the floor.
Then they spark a twist.

When the clock strikes midnight,
Twirl me under the stars.
Share this moment with me.
Wash away my pains,
Wash away my fears.

When the clock strikes midnight
All will be forgotten.
