At the Moment
Hold me with some fortitude,
I am tired of the solitude.
Tell me some secrets you've never told before,
Don't leave me wanting more.
Let the silence fill the room.
Things are going by so fast, too soon.
I feel my heart, pounding, against my chest.
Too nervous, I am unable to rest.
I don't want to close my eyes,
I'm worried about tomorrow, about future lies.
Whisper something in my ear,
Conjure up some truth, whisk away the this sinking fear.
Are these feelings real?
I can't tell. everything seems so surreal.
Don't go to sleep yet!
I'm not ready to say good-bye to the night...
At the moment, everything seems so right.
But through the windows, I see that ominous, burdening light.
Is this. good-bye? Is this the end?
Please, please don't tell me this was all pretend.
Before I finally close my eyes,
I look at you and supress a sorrowful sigh.
Too scared to express myself to you,
I softly whisper good-bye.
