  • While there is time
    Let's go out and feel everything
    If you hold me
    I will let you into my dreams
    For time is a river rolling into nowhere
    We must live while we can
    And we'll drink our cup of laughter

    The finer things keep shining through
    The way my soul gets lost in you
    The finer things I feel in me
    The golden dance life could be

    I've been sad
    And have walked bitter streets alone
    And come morning
    There's a good wind to blow me home
    So time be a river rolling into nowhere
    I will live while I can
    I will have my ever after

    The finer things keep shining through
    The way my soul gets lost in you
    The finer things I feel in me
    The golden dance life could be

    We go so fast, why don't we make it last
    Life is glowing inside you and me
    Please take my hand, right here where I stand
    Won't you come out and dance with me, oh
    Come see

    And lovers try
    'Til they get the best of the night
    And come morning
    They are tangled up in the light
    So time be a river rolling into nowhere
    And they love while they can
    And they think about the night so sweet

    The finer things keep shining through
    The way my soul gets lost in you
    The finer things I feel in me
    The golden dance life could be

    The finer things keep shining through
    The way my soul gets lost in you
    The finer things I feel in me
    The golden dance life could be Writer/s: STEVE WINWOOD, WILL JENNINGS
