Time Today
Kero Kero Bonito Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I got so much time today
I got hopes and dreams and plans all yet to be made
So get out the way
'Cos I'm coming through now
I got something to do
And I'll try
As I might
To keep up with the light
'Til I'm into bed for the night

I got so much more to say
I got books and tapes and canvas bearing the weight
But they're not arranged
'Cos it takes too long and
I'm still moving on
But I don't
Even know
Where I should be trying to go
So I guess I'll follow my nose

And I can't help but think about
If the sun ever stays down
Will I notice or will I
Just be sitting around
Ticking a list off
Rueing what I said wrong
But dawn still greets my windowpanes
And as long as I shall
Wake up in the morning
I got plans

I got so much time today
I got so much time today




I got so much time today
I got so much time

Overall Meaning

In "Time Today," Kero Kero Bonito sings about having a surplus of time and a wealth of potential opportunities, but at the same time, feeling somewhat uncertain in terms of what direction to take. The singer is clearly excited about everything that the future holds, with "hopes and dreams and plans all yet to be made." They are determined to achieve their goals, and nothing is going to stand in their way. As they forge ahead, they "try as (they) might to keep up with the light," but they're also aware that they'll eventually need to rest and recharge, hence the line "till I'm into bed for the night." Despite all the challenges and obstacles that may stand in their way, the singer is resolute and confident.


The second verse of the song continues this theme of uncertainty and figuring things out as you go. The singer acknowledges that they have books, tapes, and canvas at their disposal, but they haven't yet figured out how to arrange them. They're still "moving on" and haven't quite decided where they want to be yet. However, instead of getting bogged down in indecision, the singer decides to "follow (their) nose" and see where that leads. They're confident that eventually, they'll figure everything out and find the right path for themselves.


The final verse of "Time Today" touches on the fleeting nature of time and how we, as humans, can easily get caught up in our own heads, ticking off lists and rueing things we've done wrong. However, the singer reminds us that "dawn still greets (their) windowpanes," and as long as they wake up in the morning, they have plans and opportunities ahead of them. Despite any uncertainties or setbacks, they're determined to make the most of the time they have and keep moving forward.


Overall, "Time Today" is a song about the excitement of unlimited potential and the drive to succeed, even when it feels like we don't have all the answers. The singer acknowledges that there may be confusion and uncertainty along the way, but they're confident that by staying focused and following their instincts, they'll ultimately find success.

Lyrics ingles/ español uwu

I got so much time today
I got hopes and dreams
And plans all yet to be made
So look out the way
'Cos I'm coming through now
I got something to do
And I'll try
As I might
To keep up with the light
'Til I'm into bed for the night

I got so much more to say
I got books and tapes
And canvas bearing the weight
But they're not arranged
'Cos it takes too long and
I'm still moving on
But I don't
Even know
Where I should be trying to go
So I guess I'll follow my nose

And I can't help but think about
If the sun ever stays down
Will I notice or will I
Just be sitting around
Ticking a list off
Rueing what I said wrong
But dawn still greets my windowpanes
And as long as I shall
Wake up in the morning
I got plans

I got so much time today
I got so much time today
I got so much time today
I got so much time

Hora de hoy

Tengo mucho tiempo hoy
Tengo esperanzas y sueños
Y los planes aún están por hacer
Así que cuidado con el camino
Porque estoy pasando ahora
Tengo algo que hacer
Y lo intentaré
Como podría
Para mantenerse al día con la luz
Hasta que esté en la cama por la noche

Tengo mucho más que decir
Tengo libros y cintas
Y lona que soporta el peso
Pero no están arreglados
Porque toma demasiado tiempo y
Todavía sigo adelante
Pero no lo sé
Incluso saber
¿Dónde debería estar tratando de ir?
Así que supongo que seguiré mi nariz

Y no puedo evitar pensar en
Si el sol se queda
Me voy a dar cuenta o voy a
Sólo estar sentado por ahí
Marque una lista desactivada
Rueando lo que dije mal
Pero el amanecer aún saluda mis ventanas
Y mientras yo
Despertar por la mañana
Tengo planes

Tengo mucho tiempo hoy
Tengo mucho tiempo hoy
Tengo mucho tiempo hoy
Tengo mucho tiempo

While there’s a slight creepiness to this video it’s honestly the most sympathetic portrayal of a mental institution I’ve seen in a music video, . That along with the somewhat self-improvement-centric lyrics is an interesting vibe, positive yet melancholy

photonicDog

whenever you see a mental hospital in media they always make it out to be some kind of prison, it's really nice to see a portrayal thats both more realistic and less scary

Forrest Keller

and then you listen to the whole album...

Rimoluna

@photonicDog too ooc, real mental facilities would never let you have scissors and phones or let you go outside (I am aware that it obviously long term and they have access to a lot more things than short term patients do, and that typically after 3 or so months you are allowed to have your cellphone)

torpid

Hy3na wait...wHAT

Feiyue

Rimoluna short term patients can be let outside for sure I’m not sure where ur getting that info. I had a friend who was admitted into a hospital for bipolar depression and she was allowed outside (marked areas obviously). They also went and did activities outside as well. But yes scissors, strings, sharp objects are heavily prohibited

This song feels like when you have a completely shit sleeping schedule and you wake up early for once, trying to figure out what to do with your day
