    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

      Thanks for posting this as CC. I used it in a guest post here: www.corechair.ca/10-minutes-more-active-life
      I saw that your name was included in the picture, so right now I'm not requesting the editor to include photo credit in the caption, but I can do so if you want. I did write a comment that gives you photo credit with a link back to this page.

      Thanks for allowing us to make use of your photo! I have added your credentials.

      On a personal note your added text is very familiar to me... unfortunately. I first encountered the phrase 'Life is Long' in the movie 'Ride' and ever since then it has a special meaning to me. But as you described I was young once and the years have flown by almost like sitting at home and watching the rain. Because I can't see any positive results from time, time has not been kind to me.

      ForcefielD Thanks for paying attention to this photo. The text corresponds to a song by the rock band Pink Floyd. I think this song is about you, me, everybody... I think it's the perfect soundtrack of life itself.

      (Ride <-- Nice movie! ;)
