Time Is Fleeting

Time Is Fleeting by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Time is fleeting, you’re mistreating all I have to give
The way you steal my minutes is a menace I forgive
You think that you’re all busy, busy is as busy does
And you just can’t see that I’ve not got the time to call this love
I’m walking ’round in circles almost every single day
And I’m counting down the moments ‘til this all just goes away

Stealing all my minutes just to love me every second
Doesn’t mean you get me and it doesn’t mean you get it
So one day I will walk away and we will be no more
And I pray by then you’ve taken all you need from me and more

Time is fleeting and you’re reading too much into things
I’m reigning fool and made the rules in all your foolish games
It’s not a fight it’s just my life and you’re not fitting in it
My heart’s just not for sale and there’s no wager left to win it
I settle in the solace of your arms most every day
But this apathetic settling is what’s pushing me away

Stealing all my minutes just to love me every second
Doesn’t mean you get me and it doesn’t mean you get it
So one day I will walk away and we will be no more
And I pray by then you’ve taken all you need from me and more

Time is fleeting and it’s almost time for me to end this
The road is closed, I’ve lit the bridge, and we have neared the finish
It’s time to see me now for what I am when I am with you
A trophy mate, a secret fate, a backdoor bugaboo
Now I confess that we were blessed and got the best we needed
But now it’s time to walk away and let me have my freedom

Stealing all my minutes just to love me every second
Doesn’t mean you get me and it doesn’t mean you get it
So one day I will walk away and we will be no more
And I pray by then you’ve taken all you need from me and more
Yes I pray by then you’ve taken all you need from me and more
Oh I pray by then you’ve taken all you need from me and more
