Where have all the hours gone?

September 8, 2008


Hey you,


Where did all the hours go?
Didn’t time use to pass by slow?
Maybe the clocks now turn too fast
We aren’t even done with the past
And it’s already tomorrow.

Where have all the hours gone?
Mysteriously from bed till morn
Someone halt this temporal theft
We haven’t arrived before we’ve left
Feeling weak, weary and worn.

Where did all the hours go
In this busy life full of woe?
We move quicker from A to B
Yet when we finally pause to see
What have we got to show?

Where have all the hours gone?
Between work and play we’re torn
Don’t we miss our friends and family
And just being stupid and silly?
When will we ever be done?

Where did all the hours go?
All this pointless bustle really blows
So I say we gotta find a new way
To beat the blues on this fresh Monday
Or else pay for what surely follows.

Where have all the hours gone
From the second that we were born?
Who cares? This ain’t a test.
All we want is some damn rest
Before all the good fun is gone!

 
Tired Devil


Yours always and always,
K.
