There Comes A Time


here comes a time
When all the words you say mean nothing any more
It's a pain you bare but still you carry on
There comes a time, I guess this must be mine

Ah ha, Ah ha, Ah ha

There comes a time
When all the dreams you held so close
Be placed up on the shelf
In an urn whose ashes still burn of the promises once deeply felt
There comes a time, I guess this must be mine

Ah ha, Ah ha, Ah ha

There comes a time
When all the ideas you had rushing through your veins
Link like chains and surround you, then tighten like a young python without shame
There comes a time, I guess this must be mine

Ah ha, Ah ha, Ah ha

Caught in mid stream when the dam bursts
And all the water comes rushing down to crush you dead
You can go with the flow or fight with your every breath
There comes a time, I guess this must be mine

There is comes a time in every person’s life
A time to change, or rearrange
Everything about you and your life
There comes a time I guess this must be mine

Ah ha, Ah ha, Ah ha

It's nice to see the sunshine once again
To feel it’s warm upon my face
And walk along at my own pace
It’s nice to feel the sunshine once again

There comes a time
When all the words you say mean nothing any more
It's a pain you bare but still you carry on
There comes a time, I guess this must be mine

Ah ha, Ah ha, Ah ha

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
