Strawbs – Time And Life lyrics

Time is the power
The enemy hour
The soul survivor of the news
The headlines.

Life is a friend
I value its end
For I can take it when I choose
The deadlines.

Time and life
Will meet at dawn
The swords have been drawn
For the takers.

Time has no heart
It wins from the start
Was I so foolish
As to try to ignore it.

Life is complete
And proud in defeat
At last I understand
Why I adore it.

Time and life
Fight to the end
But life has to bend
To her makers.
