Time Waits For No One Lyrics

by Rolling Stones

Yes, star crossed in pleasure the stream flows on by
Yes, as we're sated in leisure, we watch it fly, yes

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me
And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

Time can tear down a building, or destroy a woman's face
Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste

Time waits for no one, no favors has he
Time waits for no one, and he won't wait for me

Men, they build towers to their passing yes, to their fame everlasting
Here he comes chopping and reaping, hear him laugh at their cheating

And time waits for no man, and it won't wait for me
Yes, time waits for no one, and it won't wait for thee

Drink in your summer, gather your corn
The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me
And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me
No, no, no, not for me, no, not for me
