5 Seconds

5 seconds

5 seconds
that’s all it takes
to say I love you
to turn around
to look left
then look right

CRASH

5 seconds
that’s all it takes
for your life to flash before your eyes
for you to jump out
make sure they’re okay
to realize
it was almost you

5 seconds
that’s all it takes
for your life to fade away
or to appreciate what you have

5 seconds
that’s all it takes
