Clock Strikes Twelve

Clock Strikes Twelve - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

August has come and gone

And you'll be leaving when dawn breaks

My whole body shakes

It's a terrible truth to bear

That I've been burning your fair skin

More than the blazing sun has been

 

Oh, heartbreak causes so much stress

I know I need to fix this mess but

 

I don't want to open my eyes and see the web that I have spun

I just want to take to the skies don't want to face the things I've done

Please don't get too close

The ones that do always get hurt the most

The clock strikes twelve

Maybe better times are on their way

But they won't be here today

 

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

Somewhere there is endless laughter

And I wonder why it's passed us by

I don't know the words to say

To blot out all the wrong notes I played

I just want to hold you now

 

Heartbreak causes so much stress

I know I need to fix this mess but

 

I don't want to open my eyes and see the web that I have spun

I just want to take to the skies don't want to face the things I've done

Please don't get too close

The ones that do always get hurt the most

The clock strikes twelve

Maybe better times are on their way

But they won't be here today

 

The air is thickening

My heartbeat's quickening

The pain is sickening

God help me

The air is thickening

My heartbeat's quickening

The pain is sickening

God help me

 

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

(Oh, I have no alibi)

Somewhere there is endless laughter

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

Somewhere there is endless laughter

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

(Oh, I have no alibi)

Somewhere there is endless laughter

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

Somewhere there is endless laughter

Somewhere there's a happy ever after

(Oh, I have no alibi)

Somewhere there is endless laughter

And I wonder why it's passed us by

(No alibi)

 

I don't want to open my eyes and see the web that I have spun

I just want to take to the skies don't want to face the things I've done

Please don't get too close

The ones that do always get hurt the most

The clock strikes twelve

Maybe better times are on their way

But they won't be here today

But they’ll be here soon, I pray

 

Oh, I have no alibi

August has come and gone
