Time Song

Album: The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (2018)
  • Time lives our lives with us
    Walks side by side with us
    Time is so far from us
    But time is among us

    Time is ahead of us
    Above and below us
    Is standing beside us
    And looking down on us

    When we were young and our bodies were strong
    We thought we'd sail into sunsets
    When our time came along
    Now that we're nearing the end of the line

    Time has changed, time will heal
    Time will mend, and conceal
    In the end everything will be fine

    And if we concentrate
    Time will heal all the hate
    All in good time

    We go on, drifting on
    Dreaming dreams, telling lies
    Generally wasting our time

    Suddenly it's too late
    Time has come, and can't wait
    There's no more time

    We go on, drifting on
    Dreaming dreams, telling lies
    Generally wasting our time

    Suddenly it's too late
    Time has come, and can't wait
    There's no more time
