This is the status messages of one of the guys in my class.
I loved it, so I copied it here.....

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
you fritter and waste the hours in an off hand 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
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


  1. And the original continues like this....

    And you run and run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
    And 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 a half page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in a quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone the song is over, thought i'd something more to say

    - Time (By Pink Floyd)

  2. I didn't know it was a Pink Floyd song....
    Love the lyrics - they fit so well, don't you think??? :))
