Matter of Time

it’s just a matter of time, (matter of time),
until the night turns into day,
before the winter yields the stage and we have Spring,
and in a matter of time, (matter of time),
the sky revolves from blue to gray,
so the rain can fall and wash off everything,
+++ I believe: don’t waste your wishes,
+++ you’ve got 3, use them well,
+++ you and me, we’re not the biggest fishes,
+++ but we’ve got tales to tell,

it’s just a matter of time, (matter of time),
until true lovers take their vows,
and they find out what they’ve got themselves into,
and in a matter of time, (matter of time),
their kids will all go off to school,
where the notes they pass will start that dance anew,
+++ I believe: don’t waste your wishes,
+++ you’ve got 3, spread them out,
+++ you and me, we’re not the biggest fishes,
+++ in this small pond of a town,
+++++ tell you what I’ve been thinking,
+++++ call it a hunch or inkling,
+++++ but it’s backed up by every cookie fortune that I read,
+++++ change is the only constant,
+++++ whether we like it or not,
+++++ and if you don’t like it, close your eyes and count to 3..

‘cause in a matter of time, (matter of time),
they’ll spread our ashes on the ground,
yeah, maybe then we’ll settle down & take things loose,
it’s just a matter of time, (matter of time),
before our children have to deal
with a world still trying to heal from our abuse,
+++ to repeat: don’t waste your wishes,
+++ you’ve got 3, so take your time,
+++ you and me, we’re not the biggest fishes,
+++ but I think we’ll be fine, I think we’ll be fine,

it’s just a matter of time, (matter of time),
before the night turns into day,
and it’s a mater of time, (matter of time),
until the winter yields the stage,
in a matter of time, (matter of time),
the sky revolves from blue to gray to blue to gray…

    This song has spoken to my spirit, as I try to heal from the death of my father. It speaks so many words of true wisdom-use the time we have wisely, for it is all too swiftly changed.
