Ever since I met you
You have stolen time from me
Robbed me of precious hours
But I didn’t mind, it was time well spent.
I knew you took my alarm clock
It was absent from my bedside
My watch, from my wrist you did capture
For when it was curfew I was not aware
And for the life of me I cannot figure out
How you got the grandfather clock out my door
But you did, somehow, in your foolish manner.
I didn’t mind, but now I do
We used to talk on the phone for hours
Now you never pick up
We used to skip class together
Now only see your face
When you’re at his side
Time goes by slower without you.
Forever and always I will remember
How you stole a part of my life from me
One small second at a time.
