Life is too short to waste all your time
Running too quickly to the finish line

Time is a track it's ready and set
And the longer you live the closer you get to being

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget

There's no guarantees or promise of wealth
And you're only allowed so much time on the shelf

Time isn't money it's only a lie
Because everything lost can be found but your time
When you're

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget

But live in doubt live in fear
And you might live forever
Or live it up and watch your back
And you might live for better

Gone, gone like the evening
Sun, sun when it sets
Gone, gone like the darkness
At dawn, and then they forget
