My To-Do List Was Just Too Long

VERSE 1

Days turned into months
And months into years
With me not having
Any time for those who were dear
I missed my brother’s wedding
My relationships broke-up fast
I wasn’t on my grandma’s side
When she breathed her last

CHORUS

I have been busy all along
My To-do list was just too long

VERSE 2

I didn’t even realize
When my hair turned grey
My daughter became a teenager
In what seems like just a day
I hardly played with her
She stopped asking me
And next month she leaves home
To join her university

CHORUS

I have been busy all along
My To-do list was just too long

VERSE 3

I slogged very hard
To make others rich
Every day I felt like
Being sucked further into a ditch
But I got a paycheck
And a false sense of identity
Then one day they let me go
And I became a non-entity

CHORUS

I have been busy all along
My To-do list was just too long
