_______________________________________________

Got our heels dug in
But time is dragginí us toward
The time when time wonít matter anymore
They say life is but a vapor
Just a blip on a radar screen
Not the dates on your tombstone
But the dash in between
Thereís just today, thatís all we got
Thereís just today, thatís all we got

Tick-tock, the past is locked
The futureís far away
You canít go back, you canít hurry it up
You gotta learn to live today
Tick-tock, itís now oíclock
The little hand is ours
The second hand sweeps us around
And the Big Hand has the power
The Big Hand has the power

Well am I liviní or am I dyiní
Will the world get another day?
I hear a baby cryiní, and I pluck out another gray
Iím always talkiní about a change
But talkinís all Iíve done
Iím gonna start tomorrow
But tomorrow never comes
Thereís just today, thatís all we got
Thereís just today, thatís all we got

Tick-tock, the past is locked
The futureís far away
You canít go back, you canít hurry it up
You gotta learn to live today
Tick-tock, itís now oíclock
The little hand is ours
The second hand sweeps us around
And the Big Hand has the power
The Big Hand has the power

Always runniní late
Donít procrastinate
Leaviní in a hurry
Life is rolliní on
Give me just a second
Wait another minute
Sleep another hour
See another day dawn
Call you next week
See you in a month
Celebrate a season
Now another yearís gone
Well there goes a decade, a century, millenium
And here comes eternity, eternity, eternity
Here comes eternity, eternity
Whatís up with eternity?

Tick-tock, the past is locked
The futureís far away
You canít go back, you canít hurry it up
You gotta learn to live today
Tick-tock, itís now oíclock
The little hand is ours
The second hand sweeps us around
And the Big Hand has the power
The Big Hand has the power
