Ed Buckley I like Ms. Dean's stuff. She has a nice voice. Her material is a sort of cabaret/show tune style of music, not my normal thing. Then again, normal and I are often at odds. ;-))

about

There have been moments that I have wanted to freeze forever, bottled in a jam jar, protected, kept safe and untouched; and there have been moments, etched in the depths of my memory that I long to forget.

There have been moments when love has met me face to face with fireworks and explosions and lightning chorales. But love was, quite simply, on another timeline entirely; somewhere else to be.

So we passed like ships in the night.

This song explores all of this. The elusiveness of this beautiful thing we call 'Time'.

lyrics

TIME
I’ll hold your heart lightly my friend
I know that it’s sunk and then surfaced again
but it’s buoyant and filled with the love of five good men
I know at times it’s been very hard
but you’ve chosen to smile and you’ve chosen to laugh
and we chose to dance for a moment in the dark
oh but it’s time
freeze-framing moments in stillness
but the more that I squeeze
I can feel this slip away
oh but it’s time
that I must let go
and allow it to grow from a seed to a flower
into something unknown but not in an hour
and maybe the petals will drown in a shower
I don’t know
oh, but time
I’ll hold your heart lightly my friend
I’ll build it a home with the words that I’ve penned
and mellifluous melodies coming round the bend
It’ll have it’s own opus, a lightning chorale
and the birds sing bel canto and I will conduct from the park
and I hope that you’ll hear me
I hope that you’ll hear me wherever you are
oh but it’s time
freeze-framing moments in stillness
but the more that I squeeze
I can feel this slip away
oh but it’s time
that I must let go
and allow it to grow from a seed to a flower
into something unknown but not in an hour
and maybe the petals will drown in a shower
and maybe you’ll hate me but at least we devoured each other
and felt it for even a moment
and I do not care if you think I stole it
cos it was all worth it
and I’ve no intention
of turning my back on divine intervention
oh but it’s time
time…
