Album: A Change Of SeasonsReleased: 1995
This was originally written during the recording of Images And Words
, but there wasn't enough room on the disc to include it. The band brought back the producer of Images And Words
in an attempt to get a similar atmosphere.
The lines, "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying,
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying."
are from To the virgins, to make much of time
by Robert Herrick (1591-1674).
