  • First Verse

    I need to keep you around

    With my feet tied

    With my feet tied tight to the ground

    The end's nowhere to be found

    I don’t know why

    You don’t leave me to drown oh-oh-oh

  • Second Verse

    Don’t know where to go unless you say

    Don’t know what to do unless you stay

    Thinking that today will be our day

    Will be our day again

  • Chorus

    Why am I playing with time as it’s ticking away?

    It's tickin’ away, away, I’m askin’

    Why, we run for our lives, not a second to waste?

    You're tickin’ away, away, away

  • Third Verse

    Alright, let's get it

    Winnin'

    Losin'

    Either way I'm there

    Gotta attitude

    I'm out the roof

    Up in the air

    This round I make it count

    Yeah I'm talkin’ right now

    Feel like the comeback kid

    I got no time to spare

    Woah

    Double up the score

    Turn a 2 to a 4

    You know I win a lot

    Gotta win one more

    On a hot streak

    Never gets old

    Solo with the ace

    And my team went gold

  • Chorus

    Why am I playing with time as it’s ticking away?

    It's tickin’ away, away, I’m askin’

    Why, we run for our lives, not a second to waste?

    You're tickin’ away, away, away

    You're tickin’ away, away

  • Fouth Verse

    I’ll give it one more try

    I don’t know why

    But I keep comin’ back every time

    I want it more than my life

    I don’t know why

    But it feels so right

  • Chorus

    Why am I playing with time as it’s ticking away?

    It's tickin’ away, away, I’m askin’

    Why, we run for our lives, not a second to waste?

    It's tickin’ away, away, away

    It's tickin’ away, away, away

    Tickin’ away, away, away...
