Words and music by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer
The clock is screaming and it's time to go
The day is waiting and you're moving slow
News and weather on the radio

But your mind keeps driftin' away
Work is steady and your friends are good
You're going forward like you think you should
You'd put your heart into it if you could

But your mind keeps driftin' away
Look at your world through the windowpane
Embrace that secret thing that keeps you sane
You're always saying that you can't complain
