James Grayson

Essence of Time


Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time
Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time
Bare this in mind, today may be your last so
Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time
Age hits the swiftest man, as quickly as the slowest
Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time
You’ve been given a gift that will fade away so
Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time
Close your eyes and more shall fade, so
Awake and arise, breathe the Essence of Time.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
