Third Shift

from The Forgotten

Six in the morning
Nobody’s working
Everyone’s watching
The clock on the wall
Everyone’s waiting
For something to happen
Nobody wants
To do nothing at all

I’m thinking of you in the darkness
Lying in bed all alone
Reaching your hand for my pillow
Lord, if I only was home

Six in the morning
Nobody’s working
Everyone’s watching
The clock on the wall
Everyone’s waiting
For something to happen
Nobody wants
To do nothing at all

I’m thinking of you as you’re rising
Stretching your arms in the air
Sniffing around for your coffee
Lord, if I only was there

Six in the morning
Nobody’s working
Everyone’s watching
The clock on the wall
Everyone’s waiting
For something to happen
Nobody wants
To do nothing at all

I’m thinking of you in the driveway
Cranking the car in the cold
Lord if I only was with you
We’d steal away down the road

Six in the morning
Nobody’s working
Everyone’s watching
The clock on the wall
Everyone’s waiting
For something to happen
Nobody wants
To do nothing at all

I’m thinking of you and I’m thinking
In ten minutes I can be home
The clock waves its hands as I’m leaving
Slip out the door and I’m gone

Six in the morning
Nobody’s working
Everyone’s watching
The clock on the wall
Everyone’s waiting
For something to happen
Nobody wants
To do nothing at all
