Two Versions of "Time After Time" Cyndi Lauper and Eva Cassidy

Time After Time is a very classic song from the 80s. I think everyone from the 80s would remember and know this song. I came across this song a few years ago while watching a Taiwanese singing competition. That contestant sang Cyndi Lauper's version of "Time After Time". Immediately I fell in love with this song and search for it. Today while searching for this song's mv, I found another version by Eva Cassidy. This version deeply touches my heart to the point of almost crying. It is like a shock to my heart as if I can understand her feelings. The lyric brings back lots of my past memories and resemble me a bit.
Whether you like Cyndi Lauper or Eva Cassidy's version, it is how they perform the song that makes it touching.

Cyndi Lauper "Time After Time"

Eva Cassidy "Time After Time"

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
and think of you
caught up in circles confusion
is nothing new
warm nights
almost left behind
suitcases of memories,
time after

sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
you're calling to me, I can't hear
what you've said
Then you say
go slow
I fall behind
the second hand unwinds
if you're lost you can look and you will find me
time after time
if you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
time after time

after my picture fades and darkness has
turned to gray
watching through windows you're wondering
if I'm OK
secrets stolen from deep inside
the drum beats out of time

if you're lost...

you said go slow
I fall behind
the second hand unwinds

if you're lost...
...time after time
time after time
time after time
time after time
