The Partridge Family – I'll Leave Myself A Little Time lyrics

Not long ago you'd find me feeling so low
I had some troubles that you just can't hide
No time to start but livin' far from my heart
I thought I'd take another look inside

Lovers and friends will come and go like the wind
And there is nothin' any man can do
For what it's worth I'll make a home on this earth
And I will hope that love will see me through


I'll leave myself a little time for some gladness
And even if I don't know why
Tomorrow's gonna bring the sunshine to a brand new day anyway
There's music in the air with laughter everywhere
And love could be the reason why
I'll leave myself a little time to go a different way

I can't believe that now I'm singin' a song
Or that I'm laughin' with that great big sun
No one I see has got a worry for me
I'm keepin' old Mister Time on the run


I'll leave myself a little time to go a different way

Repeat and fade
