Do the math
Because you only have so many hours
Left to make it count

Subtract the fact
First you have to figure out what life is
Really all about

You can count the minutes and you can avoid the seconds
You can double standards, forgetting all your lessons now

I count on one hand what matters to me most
Only time can subtract them, I suppose
But I'm trying, trying not to let it go
Still the numbers drop, it's just not adding up

Do the math
The path you plan to get you by may not be
Not be working out

Subract the fact
The future that you carry on your shoulders
Adds up ounce by ounce

You can count the minutes and you can avoid the seconds
you can double standards, forgetting all your lessons now

I count on one hand what matters to me most
Only time can subtract them, I suppose
But I'm trying, trying not to let it go
Still the numbers drop, it's just not adding up

It's just not adding up

I count on one hand what matters to me most
Only time can subtract them, I suppose
But I'm trying, trying not to let it go
Still the numbers drop, it's just not adding up

I count on one hand what matters to me most
Only time can subtract them, I suppose
But I'm trying, trying not to let it go
Still the numbers drop, it's just not adding up
