If I could save time in a bottle
Is to save every day
Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,

To do the things you want to do
I've looked around enough to know
Through time with
If I had a box just for wishes
The box would be empty
Of how they were answered by you
But there never seems to be enough time
Once you find them
That you're the one I want to go
