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

CHORUS
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 a 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 lightening choral
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

CHORUS
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 a 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
for it was all worth it
and I’ve no intention
of turning my back on divine intervention
Oh but it’s time…
Time…
