It towered over us, tall and dark,
Making us run through the halls.
Fearingy the sound, ringing around
And tick tock went the clock.

Running after the high life
After coming home from fights,
Broken hearts and love from boys
And tick tock went the clock.

It stood there dark and hard,
It never missed the end or start.
Through the tears through the laughs
Tick tock went the clock.

Rushing through the day’s drive
Making sure to watch the glass.
Visiting less and less so far
But tick tock went the clock.

Getting the call of tears and hurt
Making sure everybody heard,
All in black to mourn their loved
Still tick tock went the clock.

Leaving the memories as they were
Not going near to even touch,
Covered in dust with old stuff
Tick tock went the clock.

Now feeling grey and feeling bluff
Knowing what time did and does.
Knowing the years spent and fussed
How tick tock went the clock.
