It About Time

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the It's About Time album, and has also been released on the Country Classics album. There's a full moon over India and Gandhi lives again Who's to say you have to lose for someone else to win In the eyes of all the people the look is much the same For the first is just the last one when you play a deadly game It's about time we realize it we're all in this together It's about time we find out it's all of us or none It's about time we recognize it these changes in the weather It's about time, it's about changes and it's about time There's a light in the Vatican window for all the world to see And a voice cries in the wilderness and sometimes he speaks for me I suppose I love him most of all when he kneels to kiss the land With his lips upon our Mother's breast he makes his strongest stand It's about time we start to see it the Earth is our only home It's about time we start to face it we can't make it here all alone It's about time we start to listen to the voices in the wind It's about time, it's about changes and it's about time There's a man who is my brother, I just don't know his name But I know his home and family because I know we feel the same And it hurts me when he's hungry and when his children cry I too am a father and that little one is mine It's about time we begin to turn the world around It's about time we start to make it the dream we've always known It's about time we start to live the family of man It's about time, it's about changes and it's about time It's about peace and it's about plenty and it's about time It's about you and me together and it's about time Words by John Denver, music by John Denver and Glen D Hardin

Time Changes Everything

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Touching Home"
There was a time when I thought of no other and we sang our own love's refrain Our hearts beat as one as we had our fun but time changes everything When you left me my poor heart was broken and our romance seemed all in vain The dark clouds're gone there's whole lotta shakin' goin' on Cause time changes everything Time has passed then I have forgot you yes I have Mother nature does wonderful things But I guess that it's true for me and for you cause time changes everything Oh you change the name of an old song rearrange it and now make it swing I thought nothing could stop ol' Jerry Lee from loving you but time changes everything So goodluck to you may God bless you I can't say we won't love again You have gone your way and ol' Jerry's gonna his cause time has changed everything I said time has changed everything

Fill In The Blanks

Ignite
Feeling alone, kicked out at fifteen Father oh... where am I going to sleep I had a home now hungry tired, filthy You had a son and walked away from me Met your new wife Start your new life You got no more time busy From house to house I sleep on the couch Whoever has room for me Being a man comes with a price tag What happened dad you walked out left for dead Negative thoughts became reality Having a child should not be so easy I pay the rent, brothers school payments Your responsibilities I used to be your priority You got no more time busy Met your new wife Start your new life You got no more time for me I don't understand what kind of man Abandons his family Well I'd rather you yell and scream at me Because I can't handle all this apathy Your life seems goog without me You chose your own path I'm not the one I'm not your son At least that's how you make me feel From time to time I use my last dime To see if that you're for real I'm sorry son I'm not the one I've got other mouths to feed But for myself I'll forgive you dad I'll be the man you'll never be Met your new wife Start your new life You got no more time busy I don't understand what kind of man Abandons his family

Start Today

Gorilla Biscuit "Start Today"
Yesterday you were on my back just to get my time. I guess it's not as precious as it seems. Because I found the time for hangin out and talkin on the phone. What should i expect, now that my time is free and you're nowhere to be found. Next time i'll try, for the first time in my life. It won't pass me by. Procrastinate it can wait, i put it off. let's start today my room's a mess and i can't get dressed. I gotta be out by eight o'clock. Deep inside i know the answer. Well there's no time like the present and i'd like to hang out but who doesn't. I've made enough mistakes for this lifetime. Now i'm here to make amends. Next time i'll try, for the first time in my life. It won't pass me by. Procrastinate it can wait, i put it off. start! stop!

Just About Time

JOHNNY CASH "Greatest!"
(Just about time I'm feelin' blue tryin' to get over you) Maybe it's just about time I told you I'm all through with you But just about the time I start to tell you I start feeling blue And just about then I lose my nerve and wait another day or two Cause just about the time I think it's over I start missing you (Hardest thing I'll ever do tryin' to get over you) It's just about time I had my sayin' I told you a thing or two It's just about time I paid you back you treat me like you do But just about the time I get the nerve I can't seem to carry through Cause just about then an mpty feelin' reminds me I miss you (Like to find somebody new I could just get you) (Just don't know what I go through tryin' to get over you) It's just about time I let you know I've had my fill of you But just about the time I think about goin' I start missin' you I'd like to go find another love that'll never be untrue But just about the time I think about leavin' I start missin' you (Havin' a hard time feelin' blue tryin' to get over you)

Wishing

JOHN FRUSCIANTE "The Will To Death"
Do you throw it in the well Wishing you had someone to tell What it was that you wished for So it couldn't come true anymore I've thrown so much away These times die and stay alive I've gone and i've stayed And though both happened At the same time I know which one i like And which one i hate You never change to fire if you're ice Even if you melt on a table and dry And that table is burned I'll tell you why 'Cuz you stayed by going away And life changes not you Life changes not you Every time is contained in now Now is only time anything happens Though one moments shot In infinity's rounds Now is the one time Anything happens here Here, here, here Here, here, here
