Borrowed Time

The sands of time create the past, trying hard to make it last
Moving towards your journey's end, so brief, on this you can depend
The thoughts of our mortality, our future path we can't foresee
Passing right before your eyes, a raging river through our lives
Too many live just for today, no thought of consequence they pay
Living only to survive caught unprepared when it arrives

I've seen that look upon your face and then it's gone without a trace
I feel we're on borrowed time
You know the odds, you place your bet, you walk the wire without a net
Living on borrowed time

Caught in time's continued wake, to win the game must know the stakes
Resign yourself to make it so, no second try before you go
You only get a single chance, to make a difference in this dance
No one to help if you should fall, the time is now to hear the call
Most never make much of their shot, some try to be what they are not
To win the battles not the war cause all they want is to be sure

I've seen that look upon your face and then it's gone without a trace
I feel we're on borrowed time
You know the odds, you place your bet, you walk the wire without a net
Living on borrowed time

And now that time is at an end it's up to us to comprehend
You never know if it will play its time for us to go our way
The future may not satisfy, and tim is such we can't defy
But your design will not betray, take care or give yourself away
Caught in time's continued wake, to win the game, must know the stakes
Resign yourself to make it so, no second try before you go

I've seen that look upon your face and then it's gone without a trace
I feel we're on borrowed time
You know the odds, you place your bet, you walk the wire without a net
Living on borrowed time
