LYRIC
Tick Tock

Intro, ticking

Verse 1

The graveyard is full of wasted talent
There are many people there who never made it happen
'Cus their dreams just seemed like a crazy challenge
So they give up and forever had to take that baggage

Everywhere mentally, imagine how it feels
If only they knew that fantasy is real
See people believe when you dream thеn you leave
To a place that is fakе 'cus you're deep in a sleep

But dreams come true so proceed to believe
Because self-doubt is an evil disease
If you say you can't do it then you'll act like you can't
Your mind will be numb, you'll be trapped in the dark

Coming up with reasons why you never, ever made it
And actually believing your best is what you gave it
Now don't get me wrong, some people really try
And a hater comes along to be speaking lots of lies

They say you can't do it and they'll tell you just to give up
Don't give 'em your time, never, ever listen
Time's very, very precious, all your seconds have a limit
They will never last forever, they could end in just a minute

Chorus x2

Tick tock is the sound of the clock
There's nothing you can do when the ticking does stop
So if you have regrets, then you better clear your mind
Because it is impossible to travel back in time

Verse 2

Living on borrowed time my clock shouldn't tick
Not religious but I'm thanking God I exist
'Cus he's gotta be up there amongst all that mist
See I'm living and I shouldn't be, that knocked me for six

'Cus my life is like a story with a plot and a twist
I can't believe in life I really got what I wished
I wished for more time, tick-tock to the tick
I received more time, someone got me a gift

I'm using it wisely, enjoying every day
Putting joy inside my brain, being positive is great
But what I wanna say is I'm gonna make mistakes
But I never will regret 'em, I'll just plod along my way

So if you have regrets then never, ever harbor them
Go ahead and clear your mind, it's ok to start again
Erase the negative and think about the positive
The life you really wanna live, chase it, don't stop and quit
Go ahead and get it, never regret it
Make a memory so good that you never will forget it
Never pass opportunities that will make you smile
Live a life that is wicked, fabulous and wild

See every day is special so you've gotta have some fun
Just forget about tomorrow 'cus tomorrow might not come
Imagine that you're 90 just sitting in a chair
Your hearing is going and your vision is impaired

But your memory is there, you remember what you didn't do
That's really gotta hurt, regrets will make you miserable
You've got to avoid 'em, go ahead and live your life
Live it like you know you'll never get to live it twice

Fast lane, screaming loud, really happy, very proud
Do your thing and have some fun, I'm talking to everyone
Do it while you can, make the memories you've got
Be incredible forever 'till the seconds finally stop

Chorus x2

Tick tock is the sound of the clock
There's nothing you can do when the ticking does stop
So if you have regrets, then you better clear your mind
Because it is impossible to travel back in time
