Tori Kelly - Blink Of An Eye Lyrics




It's 2 am, I can't believe you're gone
Isn't it strange how
One life ends, but the clocks upon the wall
They keep ticking on and on and on
What were your last words?
Happened so fast Lord
Can't help but think who you would be
If you just had the chance to turn 23, oh

It's 2 am, still don't believe you're gone
And the world keeps spinning on
You had so many songs
Left to sing, so many stories that I'll never get to read
Heaven holds you in its arms
And now I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
In the blink of an eye

It's hard to think with all this extra noise
They're talking so loud
But, you're quiet now while your melody plays on
And I'll just sing along, along, along
When you took your last breath
You had so much life left
Can't help but think it could have been me out there
Chasing a dream when suddenly it all stops... In a heartbeat

There's so many songs
Left to sing, so many stories that I'll never get to read
And heaven holds you in it's arms
And now I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
In the blink of an eye
Ohhh
In the blink of an eye
Ohhh

  2. Carla Galea

    It's 2 am, I can't believe you're gone
    Isn't it strange how
    One life ends, but the clocks upon the wall
    They keep ticking on and on and on
    What were your last words?
    Happened so fast Lord
    Can't help but think who you would be
    If you just had the chance to turn 23, oh

    It's 2 am, still don't believe you're gone
    And the world keeps spinning on
    You had so many songs
    Left to sing, so many stories that I'll never get to read
    Heaven holds you in its arms
    And now I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
    In the blink of an eye

    It's hard to think with all this extra noise
    They're talking so loud
    But, you're quiet now while your melody plays on
    And I'll just sing along, along, along
    When you took your last breath
    You had so much life left
    Can't help but think it could have been me out there
    Chasing a dream when suddenly it all stops... In a heartbeat

    There's so many songs
    Left to sing, so many stories that I'll never get to read
    And heaven holds you in it's arms
    And now I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
    In the blink of an eye
    Ohhh
    In the blink of an eye
    Ohhh

    It’s 2020 and I still listening to this song💔🥺

  5. Ally Perales

    My grandpa passed away 8 days before Christmas in 2018. I haven't spoken to him in years since I left my hometown. My family didn't tell me. I found out through social media. They got upset when I expressed my condolences....I miss him so much. It's so hard. I've been depressed for over a year..I barely eat. I come home from work and go straight to my room and listen to music. I quit talking to alot of people. 😢
    I fake smile and say "I'm ok".
    I love Tori Kelly and the fact that she wrote "Your Words" for her grandpa...I love this one too. My grandpa's birthday is next month. I want to do a cover but I'm not sure which one.

  6. Kayla Miranda

    My sister died last week.....and I cant begin to explain how much this song hits me in my soul....just when i start to feel better...she pops in my mind again..... I remember a couple of weeks before you left, You were so suicidal andYou told me no one would even miss you so stop worrying about you.... If you could only see how many came to your wake.....crying.....wishing we all could just get one more moment with you.....god I've never felt such pain before....I mean my son got cancer so this is probably one of the worst emotional painful things I've ever had to endure....I'll never be the same again

  34. Peri Flores

    It's been three years now.I never said this at the time for some reason, but the lyric that got me..."What were your last words?"She saw that man coming up to her. She thought he was just shy, so she opened her arms for a hug. That was the very last thing she did.For all we know, her last words could have been "Hi! What's your name?" or "Don't be shy, it's ok." But no one got them.That's why it hurts as much today.

  35. Lina Lina

    Rest easy sarah Segerstrom ❤️💔

  36. Yehuda Goldman

    Cristina Grimmie forever!!!!

  37. Schattenvolk Official

May they both rest in peace and love!

    Are you doing ok now? ❤️❤️❤️

    Leia Rees

    It still hurts💙 but I know that she wouldn't want me being sad the she's gone she would would want me to be happy for the time we had. I just can't help every breathe I take I think of how I could've done something about it or to prevent it. I miss her more and more every day😔💙 thank you it helps to talk to people.

    Becca

    @Leia Rees I'm not sure what happened to cause her death but I know she would want you to be happy. My best friend almost died from a brain aneurysm a year ago and even though she's alive I'm still dealing with the effects. Time helps but it won't ever completely heal. You're strong and you'll keep making progress!! I believe in you. God's watching over you too and loves you so much. He says so in the Bible. 💓 love you girly. Stay strong. 😊

    Leia Rees

    hungry I know that I do not know you but I'm great full for you and I will pray for you and your friend💙 thank you so much I just don't have any words to describe the pain but ik that she's happy in paradise🌅💙

    It's 2 AM
    I can't believe you're gone
    Isn't it strange how
    One life ends
    With the clocks up on the wall
    They keep ticking on
    And on and on

    What were your last words
    Happened so fast Lord
    Can't help but think what you would be
    If you just had the chance to turn 23

    It's 2 AM
    Still don't believe you're gone
    And the world keeps spinning on
    You had so many songs
    Left to sing, so many stories that I'll never get to read
    And it holds you in its arms
    And now I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
    In the blink of an eye

    It's hard to think
    With all this extra noise
    They're talking so loud
    But you're quiet now
    While your melody plays on
    And I'll just sing along
    Along, along

    When you took your last breath
    You had so much life left
    Can't help but think it could've been me out there
    Chasing a dream when suddenly it all stops
    In a heartbeat

    There's so many songs left to sing
    So many stories that I'll never get to read
    And heaven holds you in it's arms
    And I'm down here learning how to say goodbye
    In the blink of an eye
    In the blink of an eye

  82. Richard Anderson
