LYRICS

It's five after five, I'm off in a flash
My work is all done and I'm ready to dash
Right into my evening, I've got to relax
Cause soon I'll be sleeping, and morning comes fast
Most days I spend driving between here and there
Because I don't have a free moment to spare
I've got to move quickly, can't take time to stare
At the miracles happening now, everywhere

(Chorus):
I don't take much time to do this
No, I don't take much time to do this
(2x)

I crest a steep hill and I glance at the view
The ocean spreads out, endless silver and blue
But I gotta keep driving, my workday is through
And I'm on my way home, where I've got things to do
I might want to cook, and then I've got to eat
And maybe I'll clean up, and put up my feet
Or maybe I'll make up a song or a rhyme
About missed opportunities, having no time

(Chorus)
(Instrumental Bridge w/voices)

But this day is different, I'm off my routine
I needed to take in a different scene
I'm taking my bicycle home through the green
The air's feeling chilly, my soul's feeling clean
It's March, I remember, the whales could be here
My last chance to see them until the next year
A hope stops my legs as I see water fly
A grey whale is spouting as the traffic flies by

(Chorus)
Chorus Reprise:
But it don't take much time to do this... (x4)
