Time (I Need Some) by Colin Archer

I’m lookin’ at the road race along
Nothin’ to do but just drive on
Trying not to let every song
Be about how you are gone

But I can’t help it ‘cause you know
That heartache’s every song on the radio
God what I’d give for some control
But that’s just the way it goes

And I need some time away from my thoughts
Just give me some time away from my thoughts
‘Cause my mind has been racing
Round and round my missing you for far too long

I blast a song and down the windows roll
Just try’na drown out the pain in my soul
The air outside’s nice and warm I know
But inside I just feel cold

And I need some time away from my thoughts
God just give me some time away from my thoughts
‘Cause without you I’m racing
Down this long long windin’ road all alone

‘Cause you left me without warning
And it hit me like a truck
Like a tractor trailer out of nowhere
Came right at me and struck
Me out of the road
And I’m tryin’ to find my way back
But I can’t get around you
‘Cause I’m realizing that

Every turn I make, every breath I take
Every time I move, everything I do
Just brings me back to missing you

And I need some time away from my thoughts
Please just give me some time away from my thoughts
‘Cause I know there’s no replacing
You decided what was right, I know it’s wrong

The idea for this song emerged one day last spring on a long drive when my mind kept swirling and I couldn’t turn it off. I quickly came up with the chorus, but the verse didn’t come until much later, and then this class gave me both the occasion and the discipline to finish it. I’d like to thank Kevin Hyland, Luke Pacilio, and Jack Pacilio for their help in fully realizing the song’s potential. Hope you enjoy!
