Clocks stopped


"In the emptiness, nothing can find a home"

When you left, clocks stopped, grass refused to grow
When you left, time forgot what was fast and what was slow
When you left, ice formed though the sun was high
When you left, breeze dropped without a reason
In the emptiness nothing can find a home
In the emptiness trees have turned to stone
In the emptiness my thoughts cannot breathe
In the emptiness I see but cannot feel
I am told time heals the wounds
I am told time will lift the gloom
I am told time will have its day
Clocks stopped when you went away
