Passing The Time Lyrics

by Cream

It is a cold winter, away is the songbird
And gone is her traveler, she waits at home
The sun is on holiday, no leaves on the trees
The animals sleep while cold north wind blows

The snowflakes are falling, the roof a white blanket
There's ice on the window pane, she waits alone
She sits by the fireside, the room is so warm
Her children are sleeping, she waits in their home

Passing the time
Passing the time, everything fine
Passing the time, I will survive
Passing the time, drinking red wine
Passing the time, I will survive
Passing the time, everything fine

Passing the time, I will survive
Passing the time, everything fine
Passing the time, wine and time rhyme
Passing the time

It is a long winter, away is the summer
She waits for her traveler so far from home
She sits by the fireside, the room is so warm
There's ice on the window, she's lonely alone
