In the early morning, by the bench at the bus stop

“See You“ you said as you waved to him

And that was that until today

 

Can’t really forget

Don’t throw a thing away

 

Like a pendulum

On a clock

Even if the clock dial eventually peels off

When the minute and hour hands circle and overlap

Tell me I can touch you once again

As you smile

 

Passing by flirting boys and girls

I suddenly remembered

A faded but unforgettable place

 

Turn into a paper-mache toy on a machine

When the gearsstop meshing

And the hands dullen and stop

Hey

Won’t you tell me

I can rest for a while

 

Like a pendulum

On a clock

Even if the clock dial eventually peels off

When the minute and hour hands circle and overlap

Tell me I can touch you once again

As you smile

 

Can’t really forget
