Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday

The theme is hours/minutes/seconds

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Dancing lights againnst the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4

Staring blindly into space
Getting up to splash my face
Wanting just to stay awake
Wondering how much I can take
Should have tried to do some more
25 or 6 to 4

Feeling like I ought to sleep
Spinning room is sinking deep
Searching for something to say
Waiting for the break of day
25 or 6 to 4
25 or 6 to 4

Songwriters: Robert Lamm

This song is from the album Chicago. It was released in June, 1970, a month before my 13th birthday, so it was pretty much a staple during my teen years. We played it in marching band. It is a Chicago classic.

I had no clue what the song was about until years later. Some interpreted it as a drug reference. Some thought it was a mystical thing. It was banned in Singapore.

Actually, it’s a time reference. It’s 25, or 26 minutes until 4 o’clock. So, it’s 3:34, or 3:35 a.m. He’s trying to write a song in the early hours of the morning. I feel stupid for not figuring it out when I was a kid, but back then we thought every song had some kind of mystical, or drug related message.
