Chasing Time

When I was little my mama told me "Son don't you grow up"
Whenever I needed her she would show up and
All I ever did was go outside and chase fireflies
But I'm older now and I'm chasing time

It's funny how when we were young all we did was wait to get older
Now that we grew up we look over our shoulder 
We got to where we thought our destiny had been waiting for us
It's not as great as we hoped it was
(Time)

Why did we throw away our childhood?
Yeah it just hit me that those years are gone for good
I miss the simpler life
When mama told me she loved me every night

Why do we fight when we're broken? (Time)
Why do we spend our whole lives chasing time? (Time)
The clock is ticking on by
We always feel like we're running out of time (Time)

Suddenly I'm in high school now and
Every single day I'm feeling down
What's happening, what happened to me?
I guess I made a big mistake and
Now I'm losing everything I thought I had
Life isn't going as I planned
(Time)

Why did I take it all for granted?
When did the path of my life become so slanted?
Well now I'm down on the floor and crying what is there left to live for?

Why do we fight when we're broken? (Time)
Why do we spend our whole lives chasing time? (Time)
The clock is ticking on by
We always feel like we're running out of time (Time)

It's funny how we're always living 
In the future or the past
But not the present, why is it always last?
I've grown old I found a job 
I have wife and I have a family
I should be happy but my life is boring
(Time)

Why cant I live a different life?
Why did I have to go cheat on my dear wife?
Well now she wants a divorce and my own children don't love me anymore 

Why do we fight when we're broken? (Time)
Why do we spend our whole lives chasing time? (Time)
The clock is ticking on by
We always feel like we're running out of time (Time)

(Time, time)
Here I am I'm burned out and old I'm stuck in this here stupid old retirement home
With nothing to do and nowhere to go but there's
So many things I haven't done
Time was a gift from God but there's not enough
I guess that I had used it all
(Time)

I'm out of time I'm next in line 
God is ready to take me back now
I'll be nothing but a photograph
I have no friends no family
Everyone I ever loved has died on me
Will anyone remember me?
(Time)

Why did I let it fly right past me?
Why did I never move out of this city?
God id do anything for one more year but my time is here
God id do anything for one more year but my time is here 

Why did I fight when I was broken? (Time)
Why did I spend my whole life chasing time? (Time, I'm out of time)
The clock ticks one final time 
For me and I truly have run out of time (Time)
God id do anything for one more year oh but my time is here
My time is here, my time has come... When I was little my mama told me "Son don't you grow up"
Whenever I needed her she would show up and
All I ever did was go outside and chase fireflies
But I'm older now and I'm chasing time

Its funny how when we were young all we did was wait to get older
Now that we grew up we look over our shoulder 
We got to where we thought our destiny had been waiting for us
It's not as great as we hoped it was
(Time)

I'm out of time I'm next in line 
God is ready to take me back now
I'll be nothing but a photograph
I have no friends no family 'cause
Everyone I ever loved has died on me
Will anyone remember me?
(Time)

Why did I let it fly right past me?
Why did I never move out of this city?
God I'd do anything for one more year but my time is here
God I'd do anything for one more year but my time is here 

Why did I fight when I was broken? (Time)
Why did I spend my whole life chasing time? (Time, I'm out of time)
The clock ticks one final time 
For me and I truly have run out of time (Time)
God I'd do anything for one more year but my time is here
My time is here, my time has come...
