The Beginning

This song is by Megadeth and appears on the album Risk (1999).

Father time
I'm running late
I'm winding down
I'm growing tired
Seconds drift
Into the night
The clock just ticks
Till my time expires

You were once my friend
Now I know I can't tie your hands

The days I saved
I couldn't spend
They fell like sand
Through the hourglass
No time to lose
No time to choose

Time taking time
It's taken mine
Scenes of my life
Seem so unkind
Time chasing time
Creeps up behind
I can't run forever
And time waits for no one
Not even me

An enemy
I can't defend
My final place
A deadly end
Life is just
A speck in space
Dreams of
An eternal resting place

I can't get any younger
Time has brutal hunger

Time taking time
It's taken mine
Scenes of my life
Seem so unkind
Time chasing time
Creeps up behind
I can't run forever
And time waits for no one
Waits for no one
Not even me
