Walk on By

by Little Hours

The Little Hours or minor hours are the canonical hours other than the three major hours. The major hours are those whose traditional names are matins, lauds and vespers. Since the reform of the Liturgy of the Hours mandated by the Second Vatican Council, they are called the office of readings, morning prayer and evening prayer. The minor hours, so called because their structure is shorter and simpler than that of the major hours, are those celebrated between lauds and vespers (morning and evening prayer) together with compline (night prayer).




Watching and waiting 
I'm standing outside in the cold for you
Scratching and holding on to something
That wasn't mine to lose

Maybe your heart 
Was only made for beating
And you
Never let me know

So when you walk on by
Don't wait up for me
You know I tried but I,
I could never change your mind
If there's no better place
We could have run to 
Then I won't waste your time
I'll let you walk on by

Just for a moment, I know
That you forgot it's crazy too
Sold for a second
Out in the snow, I took this photo of you

A day at a time
No hold on tomorrow
That's why
We have to let it go

So when you walk on by
Don't wait up for me
You know I tried but I 
I could never change your mind
If there's no better place
We could have run to 
Then I won't waste your time
I'll let you walk on by

But if I had the chance
I'd make it up again
To see you in the lights
On 38th and 9th
Not how to remember it
Those words you left me with

Now when you walk on by
You don't wait up for me
You know I tried but I 
I could never change your mind

There was never a way that we
Could ever stay here
I guess we've spent our time
So I'll let you walk on by
