Song#: 18

Album
Name of Song: Bending Time

As I look deeply into
the beginning of my time,
It could be viewed as way back then,
But also can be now.

Time is rather fluid,
It flows from then to now,
But when confronted right head on,
It melts before these eyes.

Why can this just happen,
So hard to make a case,
For its illusory character,
And its sometimes vanishing trace.

I’m not trying to convince you
Of something so believed,
But when you look more closely at
It sometimes can deceive.

Chorus
Time goes on forever,
It tells us what to do,
It makes its case for here and now,
And a past that sticks like glue.
People try to bend its grasp,
Like gel that’s hard to hold,
Focusing intently on
can make one feel quite bold.

For years we’ve tried to alter,
And reverse it’s ageless hold,
It’s worth a look intently at
That shock of getting old.

As I look deeply into
the beginning of our time,
It could be viewed as way back then,
But also can be now.

Time is rather fluid,
It flows from then to now,
But when confronted right head on,
It melts before these eyes.

Chorus
Time goes on forever,
It tells us what to do,
It makes its case for here and now,
And a past that sticks like glue.
People try to bend its grasp,
Like gel that’s hard to hold,
Focusing intently on
can make one feel quite bold.
