Tonight is going to rain tears
For today the storm is on me
Lightning and thunder wrapped in fears
Is bound to destroy my sad heart, honey
Yeah, 9,8,7, It’s countdown, baby
The clock shows 1 second left for us two
The soothing blue sky is nowhere, to see
Yeah, 6,5,4, It’s countdown on you
There is nothing left to say or to do
Tick tock, the clock is leaving us behind
Don’t know the path life is leading us to
Trading emotional heart for rational mind
We will learn how to move on and get by
Oh Yeah, 3,2,1, It’s countdown to goodbye
