I'm Fighting Time (Roper)

Lyrics:

Another day
Another stamp on my
Frequent diner card
So many cards
Have passed me by
Like cars on the boulevard

As I知 rushing through this lunch again
To get back to the work that must be done
I dream of things I壇 rather do
But I never seem to find the time

It痴 like I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
The window outside
As the months roll by
I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
My window

Another month
Another stack of bills
Have just been paid
I値l turn around
There they値l be again
In this never ending parade

As I知 sifting through these bills again
The list of things I have to pay stacks up
I think of places I壇 rather be
But there never seems to be the time

It痴 like I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
The window outside
As the months roll by
I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
My window

Gotta get it done
Finish one more task
Check it off the list
Tackle one more thing
Finish it
Check it off the list

Gotta get it done
Finish one more task
Check it off the list
Tackle one more thing
Finish it
Check it off the list

Think of three more things
Write them down
Put them on the list
Can稚 forget to do
Such important things

Another spring
Another year has passed
Since the trees turned green
It痴 won稚 be long
They値l all fade again
It痴 part of this old routine

When I知 walking through the park again
To work and back every day this year
I値l think of things that might have been
If only I had found the time

Because I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
The window outside
As the months roll by
I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
My window

Yeah I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
The window outside
As the months roll by
I知 fighting time
Watching it fly by
My window

Song Notes:

This song was inspired, in part, by the balance (or imbalance) between the things that must be done in life (work, bills, etc), the things that one would rather be doing, and the constant vigilance needed to keep that balance in check.
