Tick tock tick tock
The hands of the clock go round and round
Often times I wonder, don’t they ever get tired
I won’t say I hate it
But I don’t like it either
Worst of all I hate the sound of ticking
Tick tick tick tick
Precious moments of your life wasting away
When you’re not doing what you love
When you’re stuck in a routine you hate
Even when you’re doing the things you love
The precious moments can’t be paused
Issues arising from the spring of my heart
This life is just a passing dream
What matters the most is our impact here
The good things we get involved in
Our memories of life

Our only response would be to cherish the moment
When we are laughing with our loved ones
Quarrelling with our friends and colleagues
Enjoying a relaxing day with some friends
Even the moments of pain should be cherished
Because without them we can't learn anything
Those extremely hard moments we wish would go away
and those very good moments we wish would last forever
In everything we do, we should keep a moment
At the end that is all we have to keep.
