Tickin' Away
by Tim McGraw



The clock above the bar
Is telling me it's 12:15
It's not such a gentle reminder
That I'm where I shouldn't be

I just keep waiting for something to happen
Waitin' for somebody to come walkin' in
Somebody as perfect as you were
So I can try it again

(But) chances are so hard to come by
And the second one is impossible to find
The clock keeps runnin' and the odds keep getting higher
That it's all just a fantasy of mine

But I shouldn't be thinkin' about it
I shouldn't be worried about it
It's just a clock on the wall
But it's tickin' away
It's tickin' away
It's tickin' away
It's tickin' away

I suppose I should cut all my losses
Go home with a six-pack of beer
There ain't nobody in the world like you, baby
If there was she wouldn't be coming in here

But I shouldn't be thinkin' about it
I shouldn't be worried about it
It's just a clock on the wall
But it's tickin' away
It's tickin' away
It's just a clock on the wall but
It's tickin' away
It's tickin' away
It's tickin' away
It's just a clock on the wall but
It's tickin' away

I suppose I should cut all my losses
Go home with a six-pack of beer
