Can't Fix It When You Look Back

Does this window
have a view
we can watch together?
you and I
front seats, we can watch forever.
watch forever pass by
or does it stand still?
you said you didn't care while I 
held your hand..
silly girl you make time
seem timeless
i'm just
a pause on the clock
my minute hand on the 9 sits still...
i wish there was a will,
to make a beautiful way
i knew you couldn't stay
we left in pain today.
i need a minute of your time
to make this last, we tried
you could never be more fine
and you could never be mine
because forever is the enemy of time.
