Sun is Setting

The sun is setting
And I'm forgetting
Everything I've learned today
And as the stars appear
I'm gonna sit right here
And count them as my memories fade away

I can't remember
If it's June or December
To me they're both the same
And I've forgotten
Quite a lot and
Can't remember where I've been or what's my name

Time goes faster than you think
You'll lose hours if you blink

And when the sun is rising
It won't be surprising
That I've been awake all night
'Cause if I go to sleep
Those memories just creep
Back in and I remember what ain't right

Time goes faster than you think
You'll lose hours if you blink

And now the snow is falling
And someone's calling
But I can't hear the phone
'Cause as each flake hits the ground
It makes a tiny sound
Combined: a symphony for me alone

They're playing a symphony for me alone
