Responsibilities

Everyone has so many responsibilities
Why we run in circles, it amazes me
We all carry to many responsibilities
Rushing as we burn the candles at both ends

The married lady, who lives across the street
I know she looks at me and thinks I have it easy
She's got three kids and a full time job
She carries to much responsibility
As we talk, theres somethng in her eyes
She's going through her list of duties in her mind
She sees me, a single women her same age
My life is different, but my story is the same

I have to many responsibilities
Why I run in circles, it amazes me
Why do I carry all these responsibilities
Rushing as I burn the candles at both ends

Theres so much to do just to start the day
We work nonstop, just to earn our pay
Try to go to the gym to be healthy
After laundry and mail, hardly time to sleep
I wish I had some time just to sit and think
maybe keep it quiet while I'm driving
But then in goes a motivational tape
The obligation to improve myself before its to late

Friends wonder whats become of me
No time to hang out
To many responsibilities
Sleep must wonder whats become of me
No time to rest
I'm handling my responsibilities
God must wonder whats become of me
Don't make it to church on Sunday
I'm still handling my responsibilities
My heart must wonder whats become of me
No time to build relationships
No time for romance
Only time for responsibilites
