Time Out

Once again it's gone away

It's a shame that nothing stays the same

The leaves change color, green to red

Dark hair turned grey

Time's wicked wand casts a spell that not even God can undo

 

Time out

I'm not playing

If I have to be 'it' I'm going home

I'm just saying that these aren't the rules

No one's supposed to feel this 

Old

 

Outside the window children play

And you reminisce on your yesterday

Swing sets and bike rides, spelling bees

Roller coasters...

Time turns the world over like a kickball game

 

Time out

I'm not playing

If I have to be 'it' I'm going home

I'm just saying that these aren't the rules

No one's supposed to feel this 

 

My arms are folded

My face a scowl

I stomp my feet and pout

Cause I'm gonna stay right here

Right here right now

Right now

Pick up sticks and fireflies

Camping trips and lullabies...
