The Time Killer


Winter Night Jerry Walker

Do you know what I needed tonight?

I needed for it to snow, I needed to cook something

rich, warm and maybe a little salty for dinner

I needed to listen to John Williams on guitar

Instead I didn’t cook something delicious, I walked in the rain

and I didn’t listen to music at all.

If you added up those wasted minutes you would discover

as I sadly did

That I spent more time doing the things I didn’t want to do

on purpose.
