Older chests reveal themselves like a crack in a wall
Starting small, and grow in time and we seem to need the help
Of someone else to mend that shelf for too many books
Read me your favorite line

Papa went to other lands and he found someone who understands
The ticking, and the western man's need to cry
He came back the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
And some things they stay the same

Like time, there's always time on my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine just give me time

Older gents sit on the fence with their cap in hand
Looking grand they watch their city change
And children scream, or so it seems louder than before
Out of doors, into stores with bigger names

Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
And daddy lost at the races too many times
She broke down the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
And some things they stay the same

Like time, time, there's always time on my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine, just give me time
Time, time always time on my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine just give me time
