What Lyrics Changed Your Life?

Im at a crossroads in my life. Im graduating college. Im moving from a life that I have made here and not moving back to the life I had before. Im re-thinking everything I thought I knew for certain. Im revisiting every kernel of knowledge I held true and re evaluating everything.I want to see life like I never have. I want to see life from 10000 angles- right, wrong, or otherwise.


So heres the deal: Im looking for perspective from strangers. I'm asking a simple question and hoping the cyber world will respond. What words do you live by?

This can mean so many things: a phrase, a philosophy, a picture ( I mean its a 1000 words right?), a movie, a song, a story. I want to know anything that has guided you or given you perspective.

Go to my new website and help me get perspective:  whatdoyouliveby.wordpress.com

 So comment or email me at wordsishouldliveby@gmail.com. and I will post them anonymously.     I want to know.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day <br />
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way<br />
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town<br />
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way<br />
<br />
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain<br />
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today<br />
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you<br />
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun<br />
<br />
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking<br />
Racing around to come up behind you again<br />
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older<br />
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death<br />
<br />
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time<br />
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines<br />
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way<br />
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.<br />
<br />
Time - by Pink Floyd
