Lyrics: 

The Clock is Ticking

Tick tock, tick tock
Chimes clock, chimes clock
Time's gone, time's gone
New dawn, new dawn

Time goes, time goes
As river flows, river flows
Change, change is coming to me now

I want to live again
I want to breathe again
I want the changes to be
Bright shining new
I want to rise again
I want to love again
I want to find again who I am

Moves fast, moves fast
As water goes, water goes
I want to be the best person I can be

Time passes, time passes
As brooks go, brooks go
I'll begin my journey starting today

I want to live again
I want to breathe again
I want the changes to be
Bright shining new
I want to rise again
I want to love again
I want to find again who I am

Tick tock, tick, tick tock....



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh Nadia, I so love this! Some words are coming to me for this. I may try to write lyrics for it, if that is okay. It may be a day or two though.

Really nice, Nadia! I can see why Cindy wants to write to this. The title works really well for this composition.

Wow--- the melody is wonderful--- I love the skips, nice singing there, Alex! This is wonderful, how you each contributed an essential part--- taking Nadia's music, adding Cindy's lyric, then finally Alex's voice to bring it all together. It seems like a shared vision where every contributor really gets the song. Inspiring music here!

Fantastic collaboration! That chorus is so uplifting in the way that Dan Fogelberg's songs use to be. Nadia's piano punctuates perfectly to the concept. Well done folks!
