    I care

    tick tock
    I'll wait a few minutes, an hour, a day

    tick tock
    makes no difference

    tick tock
    darkness creeps in

    tick tock
    answer me

    tick tock
    unlock the silence

    tick tock
    so I’ll wait

    tick tock
    and wait

    tick tock

    tick tock
    you answer
