time to make a life lyrics – diane chase

we wake up every morning,
in the early eyes of dawn
roll on out of bed, kiss,
and put the coffee on.
by 9 or 10 i feel as though,
i’ve worked a day or two
i close my eyes and dream about,
spending time with you
everyday i trade the simple things
for all their weight in gold
but they always leave me longing for
something more that i can hold

[chorus]

we’ve got the house,
we always thought we needed
we’ve got everything the jones’ would dream of
we give all we’ve got
from 9 to 9
and think we’ve got it right
we got time to make a living,
just no time to make a life.

if we woke up tomorrow,
and all of this was gone,
i know we’d have everything
we need to carry on
more and more i’m missing
the way things used to be
when all we ever had in life
was time for you and me
still i trade the simple things for all their weight in gold,
and still they leave me longing for
something more that i can hold.

[chorus]

we’ve got the house,
we always thought we needed
we’ve got everything the jones’ would dream of
we give all we’ve got
from 9 to 9
and think we’ve got it right
we got time to make a living,
just no time to make a life.
it seems this world’s gone crazy
seems we’ve lost all sense of time.
we’re all running a race
that has no finnish line.

[chorus]

we’ve got the house,
we always thought we needed
we’ve got everything the jones’ would dream of
we give all we’ve got
from 9 to 9
and think we’ve got it right
we got time to make a living,
just no time to make a life.

yah, time to make a living,
just no time to make a life.
it’s about time.
time to make a life.
it’s about you and me.
