Me Like Bees – There Will Be Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hey man, take it easy on that cigarette
It’s not a race, ‘least not one you’ll win
What is that your chipping at in your head
You say I’d know if I’d stick around

I think that’s a burn but we seldom learn
You know fire’s too strict a teacher
Stoking up the coal with another pull
Silence and smoke poured out

[Chorus]
But there’ll be time in distant days
Time enough for me to shape my ways
Where my ambitions lift my indifference
And no more of the day is a waste

[Verse 2]
Get me on the next one I want out
On a bus or train just something
If you traced these city limits from the map
I swear you’d draw a mouth

I promised the neighbor lady I’d look after her cats
Over the summer (summer)
Kind of made fume that she’d duly assume
That I’d just be around

[Chorus]
Before the Earth swallows us up
Before the dirt begins to fill my cup
And the stuff inside of me is made a feast
For the earthworms and digging grubs

[Post-Chorus]
But the thing that I wanted and came here to say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
And you think that you’ll go but you end up
Sticking around

But I think what I heard Bill Murray say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
And don’t think that you’ll go just to end up
Sticking around

[Chorus]
But there’ll be time in distant days
Time enough for me to shape my ways
Where my ambitions lift my indifference
And no more of the day is a waste

Hope to know all I’ve spent
Time and love and money for the rent
I hope to know what was and wasn’t meant
To be sought out on the firmament

[Post-Chorus]
But the thing that I wanted and came back to say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
You think that you’ll go and you end up
Sticking around

But I think what I heard Bill Murray say
Was “all of it goes a different way”
Don’t think that you’ll go just to end up
Sticking around
