Time for a Change; Changes in Time

Sitting here pondering all that is different

Wondering how the time got away from me

It seems like only yesterday it was yesterday,

and tomorrow was a vague and distant thing

But now I look and it's tomorrow today

How did that happen? I just don't know

So much has changed in my life

So many differences have left their mark on me,

A stranger I've become, even to myself,

and I can hardly recognize old friends

I guess time has left its mark on us all

Think of the future, not so distant now

It'll be here before we know it,

and we'll be looking at this time in our rearview mirror

How did so much time slip behind me so fast?

I guess I wasn't looking when it crept past, on its way

from what's to be to the way that it was
