True lost loves that once was.

Without knowing where the years went

Nor recalling how the months were spent

The weeks disappeared with the rest

But there was a time

When I had the time

And that time was the best.

 

Yes there was a time

When I had the time

To make the time for you

But as the hours slipped by

The minutes did fly

And the seconds escaped too.

 

Glue wasn’t strong enough

Nails weren’t the right stuff

No screws would hold us together

So love fell apart

To shatter the broken heart

Touched only by a feather.

 

I went my way

And you had to stay

But what else could we do

Time even left to take flight

As each day became a night

And the yellow sun turned to blue.

 

Without knowing where the years went

Nor recalling how the months were spent

The weeks disappeared with the rest

But there was a time

When we had the time

And that time was the best.

 

Glue wasn’t strong enough

Nails weren’t the right stuff

No screws would hold us together

So love fell apart

To shatter the broken heart

Touched only by a feather.
