Jae Stephens – Killing Time lyrics

We're standing outside of an old 7-11
There are things we should be doing,
Things that we're forgetting

The sun's going down yeah
It's setting rather nicely
I've got a Coke
You've got an Arizona Iced Tea

Time ticks on
Time that we're wasting
Our future's running from us,
But we're not doing no chasing

This is life
This is how it's always been
Tomorrow it'll probably happen all over again

Yeah there's some drama
But it ain't like the movies
None of us are knocked up
Or strung out like we could be

Yeah we've got issues
But we're doing just fine

Killing time
Killing time

I wake up
It's already two in the afternoon
Alarm is off, my pillow soft
Yeah there's no need for snooze

You say,
"Hey, what are we gonna do today?"
I say,
"I don't know,
I've got no money anyway."

There's gotta be more to life than this
A lot of answers we don't have,
A couple boys we kissed

For the most part,
We make it all up as we go
Cause we wouldn't wanna interrupt the natural flow

Yeah there's some drama
But it ain't like the movies
None of us are knocked up
Or strung out like we could be

Yeah we've got issues
But we're doing just fine

Killing time
Killing time

Yeah there's some conflict
But it's not what's on tv
We've got no money
Just time to live it freely

We don't want trouble,
No we're just living life

Killing time
Killing time

Thinking every day should be an episode of Skins
Well your mother won't let you
So you can think again

Thinking your life should be an episode of Degrassi
I'm making sure I stay alert
So nothing gets past me

Barely doing enough to get by
Mediocre life meeting the satisfactory line

All summer and all year long
You're sitting on the curb
Singin' the same old song

Yeah there's some drama
But it ain't like the movies
None of us are knocked up
Or strung out like we could be

Yeah we've got issues
But we're doing just fine

Killing time
Killing time

Yeah there's some drama
But it ain't like the movies
None of us are knocked up
Or strung out like we could be

Yeah we've got issues
But we're doing just fine

Killing time
Killing time

Yeah there's some conflict
But it's not what's on tv
We've got no money
Just time to live it freely

We don't want trouble,
No we're just living life

Killing time
Killing time
