Always ticking

Never enough it seems

It’s funny how when you want it to speed up

It stops

But when you want more

It's gone

Time doesn't give second chances

It only happens once

And you can never change it

Or get it back

Tick tock, tick tock

Isn't that how most think of time?

The noises of a clock

They're the first things to come to mind

But what about the people

In the days where clocks didn't exist

What did they think?

Was the thought simply dismissed?

Did they think of the sun?

Rising and falling

Warning them of the light and dark

Always approaching

Never failing to appear

In the early morning

When everyone would wake up

And birds would sing

Or in the evening

As dusk sends the world into darkness

Coming out are the creatures of the night

While all the rest sleep their weary heads

Tick tock, tick tock

Again with the clock

Time's slipping away

Mine's almost up
