Midnight Chime

Confused as hell, I hear the bell,
a moment froze in time.
As clock strikes twelve at midnight
which day is on the chime?

Yesterday, Tomorrow... or Today,
where does it go?
What is this moment lost in time,
which day?  I'll never know.

You may think I should not worry,
whatever is the day.
But moments of my only life
are lost by me this way.

So tell me as the midnight chime
rings fleeting time away.
Is it now, before or after
that I'm losing every day!
