Lyrics

As time begins to burn itself upon me
And the days are growing so very short
Some people try their hardest to reject me
But in a strange, kind way, their conscience won't be caught

Something's happening to me day by day
My pebble on the beach is getting washed away
I've given everything I had to give
And now I'll turn around and find, I ain’t got no time to live

So many times I’ve seen that big wheel of fortune
Spinning round for the one who was holding the ace
There's so many who would change their places for him
But none of them have ever, ever seen his lonely face
Something's happening to me day by day
My pebble on the beach is getting washed away
Lord, I've given everything I had to give
And now I look around and I find, I ain’t got no more time to live

No more time to live x 4
