Tick, Tock

That annoying sound

The sound that tells you you’re wasting time


Tick, Tock

The sound reminding you that you don’t have time to waste

That you may not get another chance to do this


Tick, Tock

The sound pounding in your head

As you wait another day

Letting him pass by

Not getting the chance to tell him

What you need to tell him


Tick, Tock

You’re almost out of time

You need to tell him

You’re not going to get another chance


“Aye guys, meet my new girlfriend”

Beep, beep, beep, beep…

Time’s up
