There's no time to kill between the cradle and the grave.
Father Time still takes a toll on every minute that you save.
Legal tender's never gonna change the number of your days.
The highest cost of livin' is dying, that's one everybody pays.
So have it spent before you get the bill, there's no time tokill.
If we'd known ten years ago today would be ten years from now
Would we spend tomorrow's yesterdays and make it last somehow
Or lead the cheers in someone else's game and never learn toplay
And see the rules of thumb are all the same that measure everyday.
The grass is green on both sides of the hill, there's no time tokill.
If we had an hour glass to watch each one go by
Or a bell to mark each one to pass, we'd see just how they fly.
Would we escalate the value to be worth its weight in gold
Or would we never know the fortunes that we had til we growold.
And do we just keep killin' time until there's no time to kill.
No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin' still.
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've beenin
And quit this work and worry lookin' back at where I've been.
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill.
