Charlie Dore – Time Goes By lyrics

Time goes by
So slow when you're gone
Time goes by
So slow when
You're not there

Everybody dressed in sunlight
The sky's reinvented a blue
Somewhere someone's laughing - I wait for you
Never never never known
Such wilful time
Smile his back against
The wall I'll never climb

Time goes by.....

Everybody moves in rhythm
Driven by dreams
All in perfect sequence
- that's how it seems
Somewhere someone strikes a match
And it's so clear
Life goes on in spite of
All the darkness here

Time goes by......

Prisoner of minutes all alone
Cut me like a chain
Multiplied by heartbeats of dream
Divided once again

Time Goes By
