If I could save time in a bottle...
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
At 1 AM she's just waiting like a shadow.
I get in from work at 2 AM.
It's 3 AM and I must be lonely.
It's 4:03 and I can't sleep without you next to me.
It's 5 o'clock and we tell ourselves, "We need to get home! The sun is creeping overhead again!"
There's something special 'bout 6 o'clock, when it's still too early to knock.
7 am the garbage truck beeps as it backs up.
It's been 8 o'clock for years.
It's 9 o'clock in the morning, you've been this way before.
Like an addict, 10AM automatic.
11 am, by now you would think that I would be up.
12 pm and my dusty telephone rings.
I'm just being silly, playing with some lyrics. After listening to Shinedown's 'If You Only Knew' (It's 4:03...) today, it dawned on me that quite a few songs have time in them. I rounded up a bunch I could think of and looked up the missing times.
I try very hard not to put too specific of a time stamp on my WiP's. I prefer to give a general time frame with subtle descriptions. How about you, do you prefer dating your WiP?
