You and I have been through this before,
I owe you my whole life, nothing more.
I never said that I liked you the most,
You're my father, I'm your son, who's the Holy Ghost?

Where does the time go when it's not around here?

Here we stand at the edge of the drive,
I'm just waiting for my ride to arrive.
I wait to see if you've any last words.
We pulled away, I called your name, I don't think you heard.

Where does the time go when it's not around here?
I don't know
Where does the time go when it's not around here?

You and I never shared all that much,
When I leave I'll be all right, I'll keep in touch.
As your road narrows, so mine grows wider,
As I leave I turn and wave to the Great Provider.

Where does the time go when it's not around here?
I don't know
Where does the time go when it's not around here?
