Once it seemed there would always be
A time for everything.
Ages passed I knew at last
My life had never been.

I'd been missing what time could bring.
Fifty years and I'm filled with tears and joys
I never cried.
Burn the wagon and chain the mule.
The past is all denied.
There's no time for everything.
No time for everything.
