Pink Floyd – Time

I have been a big fan of Pink Floyd for years. I can not always listen to Pink Floyd, but sometimes its perfect for the situation. I just had a live version of Time by David Gilmour come across one of my Pandora stations. It reminded me to experience life.


Life is too short to simply sit around waiting for someone else to fire that starting pistol. Start life for yourself. Get out and have fun.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it’s sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you’re older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desparation in the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I’d something more to say
