lyrics

I got time for smoking cigarettes in the dark. I've got time for talking too much about people I don't like. I've got time all the time but I ain't got time for you. I've got time for reading Franny and Zooey again. I've got time for wishing that you'd get well soon. I've got time all the time but I ain't got time for you. Life may be short and mine may be shorter, I ain't that sad to say. And what will I have to show for myself come judgement day? I didn't let you get me down with all your hell-bent self-destruction. When you was like that I never had no time for you. I got time for not leaving the house for five days straight. I got time for losing friends like it was my job. I got time all the time but what are you trying to do? I got time for feeling like shit at appropriate times. I got time for dreaming about my impending doom. I got time all the time but I ain't got no time for you. Life may be short and mine may be shorter, I ain't that sad to say. And what will I have to show for myself come judgement day? I didn't let you get me down with all your hell-bent self-destruction. When you was like that I never had no time for you. Now, I don't mind a little foolishness. I done plenty of that myself. Take it outside and let the breeze cool it down and maybe we'll be friends again.
