Porcupine Tree – Time Flies lyrics

I was born in '67
The year of Sgt. Pepper
And Are You Experienced
?

Into a suburb of heaven
Yeah, it should've been forever
It all seems to make so much sense

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

She said luck is all you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let's dance a while

She said nothing ever happens
If you don't make it happen
And if you can't laugh then smile

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

And laughing under summer showers
Is still the way I see you now

How does time break down
With no marker, things slow down.
A conference of the strange
And your family is deranged

I could tell you what I'm thinking
While we sit here drinking
But I'm not sure where to start

You see there's something wrong here
I'm sorry if I'm not clear,
Can you stop smoking your cigar?

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

And the coat your wore to Alton Towers
It's still the way I see you now

    Life is short, and change is ever encroaching upon our personal plans for our lives. Too many dreams fail to come true, and the heartaches still cause your memory to flicker upon that which is purest in your life, when you felt the most alive. Time does fly, forbidding us to savor the here and now and spend so much of our lives planning on things that in hindsight never do come to pass.
