Tell Me It’s Not Too Late

From the very first dawn I met u...
I never truly understand what u meant for me....
I just know that I like to see u smile…
Even though that smile is not for me…
I just know that I like to see deep inside your eyes and seeing how bright they are...
Even though I know they’re hiding something…
I just sit there and watch…
Waiting for the dawn to end and hoping that this is more than just a dream…

Now I just realized…
In the midst of the dusk, I’m searching…
Searching for that smile…
Searching for those eyes…
Searching for something missing in my life…
I just hope that I never woke up…
So that I don’t have to face the truth...

Now I’m waking up…
The pain of the first sunlight hit my eyes…
I’m still missing you…
You’re nowhere to be found…
Just when I needed you most…
Maybe it’s my fault…
For I take you for granted...
I just hope that I can see you once again..

I hope that I can see those smiles of yours again...
I hope that I can see deep inside those beautiful eyes again…
I hope that it’s not to late…
I just want to love you once more before it’s too late..
Forgive me if I can’t see clearly before..
For I haven’t fully awake...

Now that I’m awake...
Please tell me it’s not too late…
