This Time

lyrics

The night once was young,
just like you and I
and love we thought we’d never lose
A picture of perfection,
we painted on our eyes
always looking for something new
And now time has dealt its hand
and here we are still standing
waiting for our ships to come in
And the streets are getting lonely and the the wind whispers Ïif onlyÓ
well maybe it’s time for if only to begin
So raise up your flag
put the moon in your sack
Forgive and let go and never look back
‘‘Cause time won’t wait for us
to get it perfectly right
so if you’re willing,
I’ll dance with you tonight
And I can see that you’ve
been here as long as I
ao many times fell from this carousel
the tears in our clothing
every bump from the ride
we’ve got to know ourselves far too well
So darling life is short,
and the sun is moving faster
so put your lipstick on,
or we’re headed for disaster
And I think it’s safe to say that
we’re both a work in progress
so let’s put down our pride
before we miss the boat again
So raise up your flag
put the moon in your sack
Forgive and let go and never look back
‘Cause time wont wait for us
to get it perfectly right
So if you’re willing,
I’ll dance with you tonight
Put stars in your flask,
tell the band to play
Stop waiting around for
the perfect sunny day
Let’s make love in the rain,
like the very first time
and I promise to you
I’ll stay this time
Oh this time.....
