Toad The Wet Sprocket – Comes A Time lyrics

There comes a time in a life
To pull on your coat,
And go outside.
Taste the vinegar and find
A bitter life...
But taste a second time,
A sweet surprise, a sweet surprise.

Its not that hard to figure it out.
When there's no question,
There's no doubt.
It burns in effigy, a time,
Senseless time,
To view the miracle of the wine,
But it still was wine
And that was my crime.

There is a face in the storm
And we let it out to find its form;
To shape a testament of will,
Strongest will...
Of pride, humility.. Its a bitter pill,
A bitter pill...

But a sweet surrender, oh my lord,
Never thought I'd see.
Not surprised that still I find
I'm shaking... And crying...
But I'm laughing,

There comes a time in a life
To pull on your coat, and go outside.
