The moon is low on the southland
The frogs are asleep on the lake
Did you know that tears run in rivulets
And hearts can repeatedly break?

And this may well be the last time
If my spirits don't pick up and fly
For though it's sad, it may well be true
That our time is passing us by

Occasionally you have called for me
I've always tried to be there
But it seemed whenever my train pulled in
You never did really care

And the only thing I could decipher
From the corner of your roving eye
Was that you and I were the first ones to know
That our time was passing us by

Well it was fun for the first few years
Playing Legend In Our Time
And there were those who discussed the fact
That we drifted apart in our prime

And we haven't got too much in common
Except that we're so much alike
And I hate it for though you're a big part of me
But our time is passing us by

So I can sit here in my silver chair
You can stay there on your gold
You can say you've got commitments
And I can say I'm growing old

And I can get up and make comments
On the colors of the evening sky
But our ships have come home and the night's rolling in
And our time is passing us by

But cast us adrift
And cross a few stars
And I'm good for one more try
