Quotes about running out of time

Byron

Canto the Fourth

I
Nothing so difficult as a beginning
In poesy, unless perhaps the end;
For oftentimes when Pegasus seems winning
The race, he sprains a wing, and down we tend,
Like Lucifer when hurl'd from heaven for sinning;
Our sin the same, and hard as his to mend,
Being pride, which leads the mind to soar too far,
Till our own weakness shows us what we are.

II
But Time, which brings all beings to their level,
And sharp Adversity, will teach at last
Man, -- and, as we would hope, -- perhaps the devil,
That neither of their intellects are vast:
While youth's hot wishes in our red veins revel,
We know not this -- the blood flows on too fast;
But as the torrent widens towards the ocean,
We ponder deeply on each past emotion.

Prayer Changes

Somebody just look back over your life and
See where he brought you from
How many of you know?
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I believe that)
Prayer changes (I know that)
Prayer changes things
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I believe that)
Prayer changes (I know that)
Prayer changes things
Now I was in a real bad abusive relationship
Knowing that that was no way for me to live
A young girl like me, raised up in a good family
Way too young to endure such misery
And every night I cry myself to sleep from all the pain
And the more I prayed for sunny days it seemed to rain
(He'd hit me) at any given time
(He'd hit me) no reason at all
(He'd hit me) so, so hard

Coffee

Sometimes life is merely a matter of coffee and whatever intimacy a cup of coffee
affords. I once read something about coffee. The thing said that coffee is good for you;
it stimulates all the organs.
I thought at first this was a strange way to put it, and not altogether pleasant, but
as time goes by I have found out that it makes sense in its own limited way. I'll tell you
what I mean.
Yesterday morning I went over to see a girl. I like her. Whatever we had going for us
is gone now. She does not care for me. I blew it and wish I hadn't.
I rang the door bell and waited on the stairs. I could hear her moving around upstairs.
The way she moved I could tell that she was getting up. I had awakened her.
Then she came down the stairs. I could feel her approach in my stomach. Every step she
took stirred my feelings and lead indirectly to her opening the door. She saw me and it
did not please her.
Once upon a time it pleased her very much, last week. I wonder where it went,
pretending to be naive.
"I feel strange now," she said. "I don't want to talk."
"I want a cup of coffee," I said, because it was the last thing in the world
that I wanted. I said it in such a way that it sounded as if I were reading her a telegram
from somebody else, a person who really wanted a cup of coffee, who cared about nothing
else.

When her last child is off to school, we don't want the talented woman wasting her time in work far below her capacity. We want her to come out running.

Tiriel

1

And Aged Tiriel. stood before the Gates of his beautiful palace
With Myratana. once the Queen of all the western plains
But now his eyes were darkned. & his wife fading in death
They stood before their once delightful palace. & thus the Voice
Of aged Tiriel. arose. that his sons might hear in their gates
Accursed race of Tiriel. behold your father
Come forth & look on her that bore you. come you accursed sons.
In my weak arms. I here have borne your dying mother
Come forth sons of the Curse come forth. see the death of Myratana
His sons ran from their gates. & saw their aged parents stand
And thus the eldest son of Tiriel raisd his mighty voice
Old man unworthy to be calld. the father of Tiriels race
For evry one of those thy wrinkles. each of those grey hairs
Are cruel as death. & as obdurate as the devouring pit
Why should thy sons care for thy curses thou accursed man
Were we not slaves till we rebeld. Who cares for Tiriels curse
His blessing was a cruel curse. His curse may be a blessing
He ceast the aged man raisd up his right hand to the heavens

Games

Standing up at the plate
Waiting on my date
I was starin' to worry
She was a halt-hour late
My team don't like it
When I delay the game
But they know I'm crowned
The girls on the rebound
Life is like a stadium at night
Crowd cheers jeers
Drama spot lights
The public know us
Maybe they don't
But now I m gonna show 'em
What the cameras won't

Time is running out for you and me
What's it all about ?

When I was a kid

Learning How To Smile

Five miles outside of Vegas when
we broke down
Threw my keys into that window
and we never looked back

We got all drunk and sloppy on a
Greyhound bus
We passed out cold so
All the losers
They were laughing at us

I will never let them break
your heart
I will never let them break me

We got lost in Phoenix
seemed like such a long time
Seven months of living swimming
On those thin white lines

Annabella's Song

I see you roll your eyes
you know it makes me smile
you are like the sun to me
all bright like liquid fire
I feel so powerless
to hold you up above the world
you are quite alot of trouble
such a pretty little girl
You know I'm never home
I'm always miles and miles away
I feel I'm running out of time
say the things I need to say
I call you on the telephone
you will not talk to me
you just dont understand
you are my everything
Anna Anna
Tell me what you want
tell me what you need
Anna Anna you are never alone

Anywere In The Galaxy

Staring out the window
at places in the starlit horizon
I'm waiting in the darkness
for arrival
but the sands of my time are running low

Lost and stranded far away from home
Peeping through window in the darkness
- parted our hearts
glowing turning circles where we go
- no
