Dreams drift away like leaves on the water
They roll down the river and slip out of sight
Too many times we do what we ought
Put off 'til tomorrow what we'd really rather do tonight
And later realise

Time passes by, people pass on
At the drop of a tear, they're gone
Let's do what we dare, do what we like
And love while we're here before time passes by

Thoughts are like pennies we keep in our pockets
They're never worth nothing 'til we give them away
But love's like a promise in an un-opened letter
Where nights full of pleasure seldom see the light of day
When life gets in the way

Time passes by, people pass on
At the drop of a tear, they're gone
Let's do what we dare, do what we like
And love while we're here before time passes by

Time passes by, people pass on
At the drop of a tear, they're gone
Let's do what we dare, do what we like
And love while we're here before time passes by
