Given a time, given a place
Savor each moment you can't replace
Do what you can to keep alive
'cause time has a way of passin' you by
The sound of my voice, whispers your name
With perfect timing, you shudder your shame
Enlisting fragrants and tendencies too,
Kiss like an angel like angels do
I know there's only one life
You've got live it or kiss it goodbye
Look over your shoulder, don't ask why
I can't say so long to paradise
Fleeting romances they come and they go
Like wandering gypsies in a traveling show
They do what they can, just to survive
'cause time has a way of passin' them by
And I miss you today just like yesterday
I'm never without you when your miles away
As far as redemption I could use some too
But that's not as likely as the sky is blue
I know there's only one life
You've got to live it or kissit goodbye
Look over your shoulder don't ask why
I can't say so long to paradise
So sleep well tonight and save me a place
Dream of a moment you can't replace
Do what you can just to survive
'cause time has a way of passin' you
Do all that you to keep it alive
'cause time has a way of passin you... by
