lyrics

I don’t feel as old as I am. I don’t think I ever will. I still try all that I can. I still cannot sit still. I won’t reel from holes in my plans. I make some for the thrill of it. I still give all that I have. And I will, I will get myself a taste for a little bit of sin, some fun ones that won’t hurt anyone or anything except my silly sense of time, and my need to fill it in, for I have lost my innocence and I haven’t missed it since.

I’m over giving up. I am all out of giving in. I just found out I’m all about giving myself a second skin to cover up the one that’s mine with one that has never been. So now I’m shedding it to show how this all ends where it begins.

There’s no time. I know I can’t fast-forward or rewind. No time to stop and think, “Where the hell does all the time go?” so, I just go with it.

I might make a few mistakes, that I know I could avoid, just to say that they’ve been made, because chaos reigns the void. And I know ours are the hours, days, and decades of our lives, but it only took a moment for me to open up my eyes to see I measure out my life in such tiny increments, so I hope every second counts itself as time well spent, ‘cause I’m no longer keeping track, except for tallying my laughs, and all the time I take for that, because I know it doesn’t last.

(chorus)

I take time to stop and take a look around myself. I’ve found myself in this.

There’s no time. (We made it up, time, we gave it up.) I know I can’t fast-forward or rewind. (So wasted up, you can’t save it up.)

And I don’t care to know where the hell does all the time go, I just go with it.
I take time to stop and take a look around myself, I’ve found myself in this.
And every time the time I take takes too much of me, I remind myself of this.

There’s no time. (We made it up, time, we gave it up.) I know I can’t fast-forward or rewind. (So wasted up, you can’t save it up.) No time to stop and think, “Where the hell does all the time go?” so, I just go with it.

Where the hell does all the time go? Who knows. Just go with it . . .
