​Hands of Time

This song is by Steve Wariner and appears on the album Two Teardrops (1999) and on the album The Hits Collection (2003).

Runnin' down the interstate
Coffee drippin' down my leg
Every day I'm runnin' late
Gettin' slapped around by the hands of time.

Next lane there's a pick-up
A girl puttin' on her make-up
Her cellular phone's startin' to break up
She's gettin' slapped around by the hands of time.

Everybody's runnin' a little late like me
The whole world's runnin' behind
Can't seem to get where we need to be
Gettin' slapped around by the hands of time.

Here comes a carpool
Mama's got her hands full
Six kids all late for school
Gettin' slapped around by the hands of time.

Just passed the governor's motorcade
Must've had a flat tire on the way
I guess everybody's got to wait
When you're slapped around by the hands of time.

Everybody's runnin' a little late like me
The whole world's runnin' behind
Can't seem to get where we need to be
Gettin' slapped around by the hands of time.

Well everybody's runnin' a little late like me
The whole world's runnin' behind
Can't seem to get where we need to be
Gettin' slapped around by the hands of time...
