Lyrics

Time passes by
And to hear its silent cry
?? far below, our sands are running slow

Night after night
Watching the days go by
???
Centuries alone

Though my eye
Sees not what goes ???
Silence to ???
Knows not what slips away

Night after night
Verses misplaced by time
Let them remain
No rearrange

Father, what will I do?

Can you tell, can you tell the time?
???
Can you try to release the spell?
??? a thousand bells
Can you tell, can you tell the time?
Double time to release my mind
Can you tell, can you tell the time?
Is there any time for me to find?

Father, what will I do?

??? Father clock, it reads
Four seconds fast
But still, I've enough time to ???
???
Many revolutions ???

Your time is up
