Tick, Tock is what I hear
sunrise to sunset
A second, a minute.
an hour, a year
Changing its course,
every time it ticks
Knowing nothing is
ever going to be the same
As you change your course
Along the river bend

Tick, Tock is what I hear
Never knowing what’s
going to happen next
Never given the chance
to go back but
only given the
chance to go forward
Tick, Tock is what I hear
