  • Saw a sign on the path, all seekers this way
    A very subtle left through a petal my way
    As I neared the bridge two soldiers stood and stared
    No one passes by us up ahead, you're welcome here

    Carried on down the road to the marketplace
    I was still alone, no one knew my face
    Then a stranger sang with voice like the wind
    Then the hails began to sing welcome in

    Time rolls on, ain't no good to sit alone
    Time rolls on and so we traveled on
    Never did I imagine what a dawn could be
    Till I opened my eyes to see it was welcoming me

    At the end of my days on my way home
    I paused a while to gaze upon the sacred stone
    There I stood in the middle of the holy domain
    Then the people came out to say welcome home again

    Time rolls on and so we carry on
    Time rolls on, ain't no good to sit and moan
    Time rolls on and so we travel on
    Time rolls on, ain't no good to sit alone

    Time rolls on, time rolls on
    Ain't no good to sit and moan
    Time rolls on Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
