Time,
Why you punish me?
Like a wave crashing into the shore, you wash away my dreams.
Time,
Why you walk away?
Like a friend with somewhere to go, you left me cryin'

(Bridge)
Can you teach me 'bout tomorrow and all the pain and sorrow,
Runnin' free?
'Cause tomorrow's just another day, and I don't believe in time.

Time,
I don't understand. Children killin' in the street, dyin' for the color of a rag.
Time,
Take their red and blue. Wash them in the ocean make them clean, maybe their mothers won't cry tonight

(Bridge)
Can you teach me 'bout tomorrow and all the pain and sorrow,
Runnin' Free?
'Cause tomorrow's just another day, and I don't believe in

(Chorus)
Time is wastin', time is walking.
You ain't no friend of mine.
I don't know where i'm going.
I think i'm out of my mind, thinkin' about time.

And if I die tomorrow, yeah, just lay me down to sleep.

Awwwwwwwwww no no no no no

(Chorus)
Time is wastin', time is walking.
You ain't no friend of mine.
I don't know where i'm going.
I think i'm out of my mind, thinkin' about time.

Time,
You left me standin' there. Like a tree growin' all alone. The wind just stripped me bare, stripped me bare.
Time,
The past has come and gone. The future's far away. Well now only lasts for one second, one second.

(Bridge)
Can you teach me 'bout tomorrow and all the pain and sorrow,
Runnin' Free?
'Cause tomorrow's just another day, and I don't believe in Time.

You ain't no friend of mine.
I don't know where i'm goin.
I think i'm out of my mind.

Walkin', wastin', you ain't no friend of mine. I don't know where i'm goin', lost, no,no,no.

Time without courage and time without fear, is just wasted, wasted, wasted time, oh.

Ooh

Time,
Why you punish me?
