killin’ time lyrics – clint black

you were the first thing that i thought of
when i thought i drank you off my mind
when i get lost in the liquor
you’re the only one i find
and if i did the things i oughta
you still would not be mine
so i’ll keep a tight grip on the bottle
getting’ loose and killin’ time

this killin’ time is killin’ me
drinking myself blind thinkin’ i won’t see
that if i cross that line and they bury me
i just might find i’ll be killin’ time for eternity

i don’t know nothin’ ’bout tomorrow
i’ve been lost in yesterday
i’ve spent all my life just dying
for a love that p*ssed away
and if there’s an end to all my sorrow
and this is the only price i’ll pay
i’ll be a happy man when i go
and i can’t wait another day.

repeat chorus
