Donna Hughes – Father Time lyrics

The wind is blowing, through the pines
Always stealing from me, father time
Taking from me, what was never mine
One more day
One more night
Always longing, for the past
Taking for granted, the time at hand
Every moment, like shifting sand
Leaving weary
The strongest man
Many fortunes have been gained & lost
Upon the ocean many ships have crossed
Many brilliant souls have lived & died
At the hands of father time I'm not promised, another day
Still I'm reckless, and time I waste
All my tears cried in vain
Gaining wisdom
As beauty fades
Gaining wisdom
As beauty fades
Many seasons now have come & gone
Fleeting memories overwhelm my soul
And as the hands of fate twist & unwind
I'm at the mercy............ Of father time
