November 2, 1986

Another doldrum, another year
Minutes leave you dead with fear
A dark cold room, an empty maze
Truth of sadness without delays
Quick to stop the hands of time
Lost to past, lost to design
Gone are loves and likes and cheer
Elderly man crawls out of here

Time is sinking, see it sinking
Father time runs away from here
Never stopping, never stopping
Hope you forgive me
before the years go by

Another swallowed, damaged pride
Heartache locks you up inside
All the sentences we can't make
All the chances we won't take
Quick to stop the hands of time
Wavering from the narrow line
Gone are romance, flowers and wine
Elderly man catches the silent signs

Time is sinking, see it sinking
Father time runs away from here
Never stopping, never stopping
Hope you forgive me
before the years go by

Another lost memory of days gone by
Desire is temporary children in flight
Look at the photos one more time
Things have changed, but they're doing fine
Quick to stop the hands of time
Sentence drawn of vague design
Minutes allow us time for lust
Perhaps unneeded, perhaps a must

Time is sinking, see it sinking
Father time runs away from here
Never stopping, never stopping
Forgiveness tamed throughout the years
