Story Behind the Song

This was supposed to be a practice demo--just four tracks, all single takes, no punch-ins. Then I decided I liked it just like this--the raw energy hopefully compensating for a few minor imperfections. Thought about adding another guitar track, maybe keyboards--but in the end decided to leave it just like this. --Tim

About Time
Words & music by Timothy Walsh

I hear the footsteps coming and
we're working all the time.
You watch the sunset fading and we're aging over time.
I don't know why we think about it but
we're fading all the time.
I don't see why you're always saying that forever you'll be mine.

CHORUS: Watching the clock I think about our days gone by
and I just can't get this monkey off my mind.

I look across the oceans and it's surging all the time.
The wind is always blowing and all things decay with time.
I can't say why we're here together--
I guess our hearts just rhyme.
I can't see why we're always running from
those baying dogs of time.

CHORUS: Watching the clock I think about....etc.

I hear those footsteps coming and I realize they are mine.
We watch the sunset fading and I realize it's my eye.
The sky is calling to us, Judy, just like when we were young.
I'll reach up for the moon, baby, and I'll place it on your tongue.

CHORUS: Watching the clock I think about.... etc.
