Doctor Who – Tick Tock Goes The Clock lyrics

Tick tock, goes the clock,
And Now what shall we play?
Tick tock, goes the clock,
Now Summers gone away.

Tick tock, goes the clock,
And then what shall we see
?
Tick tock, until the day,
'Till thou shalt marry me
.

Tick tock, goes the clock,
And all the years they fly,
Tick
tock, and all too soon,
You and I must die.

Tick
tock, goes the clock,
We laughed at fate and mourned her,
Tick tock, goes the clock,
Even for the doctor
.

Tick tock, goes the clock,
He cradled her, and rocked her,
Tick tock, goes the clock,
Even for the doctor.

Doctor, brave and good,
He turned away from violence,
When he understood,
The falling of the silence
.

Tick tock, goes the clock,
He gave her all he could give her,
Tick tock, goes the clock,
Now prison waits for River.

    From a real life perceptive, It suggests that no one can escape time, and no matter how much you try running from it, it will eventually catch up to you.

    From a Time-Lord perspective, the ''Tick tock goes the clock, and Now what shall we play?'' suggests that they are playing the Doctor at his own game. The Doctor likes to run away from time as if it is a game, so time is eventually going to catch up to him. It also suggests that in trying to do the 'good' things, he traps people he loves around them, such as the alternate reality for Rose, or the past for Amy and Rory and here the 'Prison' for River.
