I remember long ago dear
We used to walk barefoot hand in hand
We were young and so in love then
Time never entered in our plans

But now it rolls on like a train and the river
In a new place every day
Time rolls on like a train and the river
Carrying our lives away

Looking back on all that we've done
It seems that we haven't done much at all
And up ahead there's so much left
And so little time to do it all

And time is rolling on like a train and the river
In a new place every day
Time is rolling on like a train and the river
Carrying our lives away

Today's sadness
Tomorrow's madness
There's nowhere to run
And nowhere to fall
In a minute your chance is given
So forget your future once and for all

For time is rolling on like a train and the river
In a new place every day
Time rolls on like a train and the river
Carrying our lives away

Time rolls on like a train and the river
In a new place every day
Time rolls on like a train and the river
Carrying our lives away
