David Crosby – Time Is The Final Currency lyrics

Time is the Final Currency (5:18)
Words and Music: David Crosby

Time is the final currency
Not money
Not power
The time will come
When you will give
Anything for one more hour

Today I learned
There are no secrets
Only time for them to unfold

And the patience to watch
The scroll of truth
Slowly be unrolled

There is a time to this
There is a flow
There is a tension here
Like a hard bent bow
Ready to send up
Send up another one
Another spark in the night
And suddenly you realize
That this time it is all right

I watched the greatest miracle
Take three quarters of a year
To bring forth life
And tiny breath
For all the world to hear

There is a time to this
There is a flow
There is a tension here
Like a hard bent bow
Ready to send up
Send up another one
Another spark in the night
And suddenly you realize
That this time it is all right

David Crosby: Lead Vocal, Acoustic Guitar
