Lyrics

my time

Written By: chris vogt

it used to be a breeze for me
to hold on to my version of reality
out there in the ether
and time a thing to glance upon
comin' in out of nowhere
a voice said "take it slower"
now i've found a new direction
won't get tired of missed connections
think i'd rather be cut loose than strung along

because it's my time
i'll do whatever i want with it
'cos it's clearer than it's ever been before
my time
i'll do what feels the best because
from where i stand
it'll be a while before she takes me by the hand

maybe it's just destiny
but it feels more like a test to me this time
i'm all out of tears
won't be drowning in the years i've lost
now i'm a little older
got the devil at my shoulder
there's no fear i'll get it wrong
won't be hanging 'round that long
but it suits me now to know how to play and win
despite the cost

why should i give in to all that she demands for free?
don't wanna die wondering what it's like just to be me

comin' in out of nowhere
a voice said "take it slower"
now i've found a new direction
won't get tired of missed connections
think i'd rather be cut loose than strung along

because it's my time
i'll do whatever i want with it
'cos i'm clearer than i've ever been before
my time
i'll do what feels the best because
from where i stand
it'll be a while before she takes me by the hand
