BOOMTOWN RATS


Like Clockwork Lyrics

Tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock ....

I'm not disconnected, I'm not unaware
I'm in one place at one time
I'm neither here nor there
I'm hooked to the mainstream, tuned into the world
Plugged into my surroundings, not out on a limb
I'm thinking in a straight line
I'm thinking that these thoughts are mine
My hear is beating oh so fast, I feel the hours crashing

And my mind beats time like clockwork - ay ay ay
And I think in sync like clockwork - ay ay ay

Tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock ....

She's done away with emotion
She sees things clearly now
She says she sees it all from her room
And it looks so small from her room
It's alright - it's alright - it's alright - it's alright
I'm on your side for a while
She thinks that time is a concept which we measure our age
She wants to say it again but she don't have time
Because her mind beats time like clockwork - ay ay ay
And she thinks in sync like clockwork - ay ay ay

Tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock ....

Count the hours, count the months and minutes
You're born in tears and you die in pain, that's your limit
You're looking for some mainly reason but there's none there
Why don't you admit it?
We make the most of what we've got, that's the ticket
My my my my my my

I stayed in that room a long, long time
And watched the seasons gliding by
And hey, what's the matter? We've got time, lots of time
It's alright - it's alright - it's alright - it's alright
I'm on your side for a while
We'll wind up, we'll slow down
We'll speed up, move around
Or we'll maybe overwind

Because our minds beat time like clockwork - ay ay ay
And we think in sync like clockwork - o o o
And our minds beat time like clockwork - ay ay ay
And we think in sync like clockwork - ay ay ay

Tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock ....
