...Time...

Hickery dickery dock… tick tock tick tock…. It always tries to touch the next moment and gong as soon as it can. The clock stops, battery dies but time never stops. People say a lot of things about time, “time flies by” , “once the moment is gone time never comes back”, “time heals”, “time this time that out of time in time on time what’s the time do you have time”… blah blah

Don’t ask me what I am trying to say as I am short of time and Pink Floyd said it all:

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day

You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town

Waiting for someone or something to show you the way


Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun


And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking

And racing around to come up behind you again

The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older

Shorter of breath and one day closer to death


Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time

Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way

The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say


Home, home again

I like to be here when I can

And when I come home cold and tired

Its good to warm my bones beside the fire

Far away across the field

The tolling of the iron bell

Calls the faithful to their knees

To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

yeah i know...

that things hits hard "shorter of breath and one day closer to death..."

but to me some how my favourite is

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
