Time why you punish me?

 

This is one of my favorite songs.

The years keep going faster it seems as time goes on. This has been something I been saying for a few years now. Well, one day I mentioned it to my mom and she said this. When you are younger you have so much time ahead of you. You are young and not thinking of time. You are thinking of school, marriage, work and friends But as you get older you have more years behind you than in front of you and that is when you notice that time is going by faster than ever before.

When she said this it just clicked. It made perfect sense once I heard it explained that way. And that is what it is. As we get older we pay more attention than ever before. As I round another decade a few years ago it seems the years are speeding.

We need to make good use of our time regardless of our age. And in the grand scheme of things we are really not on this planet a long time. When you think of the trees, land and various architecture around the world we are just a small drop in a big ocean. What we do during that span is up to us.

As we wait for Christmas and what it means to us and the New Year may it be a great season for you all. I’ll be back next year.

The lyrics:

Time why you punish me
Like a wave bashing into the shore
You wash away my dreams

Time why you walk away
Like a friend with somewhere to go
You left me crying

Can you teach me ’bout tomorrow
And all the pain and sorrow running free
‘Cause tomorrow’s just another day
And I don’t believe in time

Time I don’t understand
Children killing in the street
Dying for the color of red

Time there red and blue
Wash them in the ocean, make them clean
Maybe their mother won’t cry tonight

Can you teach me about tomorrow
And all the pain and sorrow running free
But tomorrow’s just another day
And I don’t believe in

Time is wasting time is walking
You ain’t no friend of mine
I don’t know where I’m goin’
I think I’m out of my mind
Thinking about time
And if I die tomorrow
Just lay…

Time is wasting time is walking
You ain’t no friend of mine
I don’t know where I’m goin’
I think I’m out of my mind
Thinking about time

Time you left me standing there
Like a tree growing all alone
The wind just stripped me bare
Stripped me bare

Time the past has come and gone
The future’s far away
And now only lasts for one second, one second

Can you teach me ’bout tomorrow
And all the pain and sorrow, running 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

Walking, wasting
You ain’t no friend of mine
And I don’t know where I’m goin’
No don’t know

Time without courage
And time without fear
Is just wasted, wasted
Wasted time

Time why you punish me
