18. Time

Lie to me,

Turn back the clock,

I don’t want to go on anymore

Let me see,

Make it stop,

I’m so tired, and so sore


Time is like sand, blowing away,

But I am made of earth,

And my grains of sand

Have been blowing away

From me, since birth


Whistle, sing, turn back time,

Stop my spinning, stop this ride,

I want to get off, now, I want to go back

Wait, wait, you put in another dime?

Why did you do this? Why did you lie?

I guess I lied, too, but I want to go back…

The End
