It was yesterday when I was looking forward to today
Today is the tomorrow I was dreaming about yesterday
Yet I find myself dreaming of another tomorrow
As surely as time flies
What did I do with yesterday when I had it?
Will tomorrow come and I can’t explain it?
With every tick tock of the clock
Time flies by, moment by moment
Moment by moment
A second, a minute, an hour, a day
A week, a month, a year, a decade
My very life flies by
What have I done with time?
What have I done with life?
Time is life, the currency of life
We spend it, use it, waste it
Cannot be stored, cannot be replenished
Cannot be stopped, always ticking
Once used, forever gone
Show me your timelines
Show me your life
What have you done with time?
Idle sitting, idle talk
Idle sleeping, wasted time
Sixty seconds, sixty minutes
Tick, tock, tick, my life away!
