Running On Time

Look in the eye of a brand-new morning
Look in the face of another new day
Look at the line where the sun is forming
Look at the place where the evening makes way
Look at the way that the light is stretching
Over the Earth like a blanket of gold
Every day it's another lesson
Learning the way that a life can unfold
And it's running on time
Running on time

Running on time
Running on time
Running on time
It's running on time

How many times have the seasons shifted?
How many tides ever tumbled to shore?
How many times has the sunlight lifted
Everything out of the darkness before?
How many minutes since the moment
Somebody started keeping the score?
If I could rewind and hold it
I'd probably want just a little bit more
But it's running on time
Running on time

Running on time
Running on time
Running on time
It's running on time

Heaven and Earth haven't always been here
Even the dirt's gotta go to it's grave
I can't lose or win here
I know what's coming one day
So while my time is spent here
I'll cherish the love that wanders my way
Cause it's running on time
Running on time

Running on time
Running on time
Running on time
It's running on time
