  1. Time Passes

From the album music tracks

Lyrics

Tappin’ my toes in Mr. Whitman’s class
Had my eye on the clock on the wall
Should’ve been workin’ on 3rd grade math
Couldn’t see a point in it all
Minutes seem like hours when that second hand won’t turn
I still ain’t clear on my long division
But the lesson that I learned is

Time passes anyway/It just slips on by
Rolls out of sight like a river at night
That never runs dry
No way to know where it’s goin’
You can try to stop it flowin’
Or jump in and ride the wave
But time passes anyway

Carolyn was my steady girl
Round the time I turned 18
Man, I thought it was the end of the world
When she gave me back my ring
It hurt like hell for what seemed like years
But it passed in a month or two
When I heard she got married
And my heart didn’t shatter
Right then”n there, I knew

Time passes anyway/It just slips on by
Rolls out of sight like a river at night
That never runs dry
No way to know where it’s goin’
You can try to stop it’s flowin’
Or jump in and ride the wave
But time passes anyway

Now me and Annie, we raised two kids and they grew up so fast
I tried to hold on every golden moment to make’them last

Time passes anyway/It just slips on by
Rolls out of sight like a river at night
That never runs dry
No way to know where it’s goin’
You can try to stop it’s flowin’
Or jump in and ride the wave
But time passes anyway
