Running so you can be late

Recommended Posts

i'm almost always early (except work of course). all of my clocks and watches are set 15min fast. i can't deal with it when someone says they are going to be somewhere at sometime and they aren't.

Haha.. story of my life.

 

I never get to work on time. It's true, I'm always like an hour & a half late....

 

If I say I'll arrive at 5, I won't show up until 5:20. I can't help it if the time in my world is delayed...

 

I need to learn how to proof before I post

I've got all my clocks set 15 minutes ahead as well. Funny thing is I'm usually thinking fuck I'm running late...and I end up showing up on time or early.

but if they're important to you, you will make the effort to be on-time

 

i know if something/someone is important enough, i will be there early. if not, then punctuality is not as much of an issue.

From The Streets

Its a beautiful song, and a little bit on topic.

 

 

Lyrics for The Streets - It's Too Late

 

She said meet me at the gates at 8

Leave now don't be late

She said one day she'd walk away cos I'm always late

Thought things were ok

Didnt care though anyway

Say sorry babe, I had to meet a mate, tempting fate

We first met through a shared view, she loved me and I did too

It's now 7:50 getting ready better be nifty

Do my hair quickly, step out it's cloudy

Mate bells me to borrow money, I got two Henry's and a dealer to pay

Call up on geezers to rid these green trees of my reeking jeans

Got a you think I care outglaring geezers stares

I'm here and I'm there

Couldn't see past the end of my beer

What was getting near, all the silence after the cheers

 

[Chorus]

 

She said meet me at the gates

Don't be late, but pretty soon the day came for change

And I was glad she never walked away

So Im choosing what to wear, doing my hair with an hour to spare

When my life went pear, she'd been there with a thick stare

Big wheel climed to the top, geezer scares bounced off

Standing at the top of this huge mountain, smiling and shouting

Spring flowers sprouting, not one inch of doubt in my mind as I reached the gates

Came round the corner at a rate

Risked her love but Im gonna set things straight

Never again am I gonna be late

Never again am I gonna be late

Never again am I gonna be late

 

[Chorus]

 

I said meet me at the gates

Leave now don't be late

I waited for a while listening to her voicemail, mind set sail

Then the facts turned me pale, wind rain and hail

My fears unveiled, for my fair female

She'd walked away, too little too late

I step up the pace, walk past the gates, rain runs over my face

Spirit falls from grace

I purchase a hazy escape at the alcohol place in the chase

Sat down I got a fat frown

Weaping and drowning my senses

For this love game's expensive

I walk in a trance

Gort a wounded soldier stance

The everyday geezers stares throw me off balance

Now nothing holds significance

And nothing holds relavance

'Cause the only thing I can see is her elagance

it took me about 20 years to understand the 'bucket on a string' metaphor from that song.

I've been hearing that song easily since I was a baby and only now do I get it.

 

You pull the bucket towards you, take all of the usefull stuff, then toss it away again. damn!

one of my fav songs ever

 

Dm - C (X2) (se repite toda la cancion)

 

I'm walking out for love

I'm walking bad really down like a cool breeze

I'm gonna be late again, 'Driver wait for me please!'

I'm running all in vain, trying to catch this fucking train

 

Time don't fool me no more

I throw my watch to the floor, it's so lazy

Time don't do it again,

Now I'm stressed and strained with anger and pain in the subway train

 

Now it's half past two - Long gone the rendez-vous

Now it's half past three - Time made a fool out of me

Now it's half past four - Baby can't you see

No use in waiting no more - It's a timing tragedy

 

A

I think it's nine when the clock says ten

This girl wont' wait for the out of time, out of time man

this is what I did...I had a friend of mine set all my clocks ahead at an interval unknown to me...I will not allow myself to check them but that helps me from being more than 2 or 3 minutes late to work everyday.

you always compensate knowing that you have that extra 5 minutes or so...im late anyways. ist ironic.
