Same old trash in the trash can
Same dishes in the sink
Place is like I left it
When I left it late last week
The laundry lies unfolded
In a pile upon the bed
The mail's still in the mailbox
Unopened and unread
And life goes on
And the clock keeps tickin'

A new moon rises in the east
On silver beams of light
We can set our courses
And just sail into the night
This old Earth keeps spinnin'
Another day has begun
The seasons keep on changin'
One more circle 'round the sun
And life goes on
And the clock keeps tickin'

Ain't no use in tryin' to save it
'Cause in the end we leave it all behind
You can spend your life lookin' for the answers
When all along they're right before your eyes

April brings her showers
Graduation's in the spring
All our hopes and fears rely
On what the future brings
Summer shows up right on time
Fireworks in the dark
Lovers walkin' hand in hand
Down the boulevard
And life goes on
And the clock keeps tickin'

You know they say the grass is always greener
Should I cross, it's so hard to decide
Just as I'm about to make my exit
Turns out I'm already on that other side

Life goes on
Life goes on
Life goes on
But the clock keeps tickin'
