Cradle To The Grave

Cradle To The Grave
(Difford/ Tilbrook)

They say time is of the essence
They say time will always tell
I wasted time in constant panic
As the Rome around me fell
And each moment that is stolen
Gives another time to breathe
In a life of turning pages
With the bit between my teeth

From the cradle to the grave
I know I won’t be a slave
To the mistakes that I’ve made
With the passion and the praise
And I won’t go till I’m ready
From the cradle to the grave

They say time is a great healer
They say time will not stand still
But when I look outside the window
I see a sky stuck to a hill
And the moon looks down benignly
Like it’s seen it all before
For a thousand generations
That don’t live here anymore

They say time will wait for no man
They say time is on my side
I can never make my mind up
As it all goes whizzing by
