Time Lyrics

Is flowing like a river
Beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea

Goodbye my love
Maybe for forever
Goodbye my love
The tide waits for me
Who knows when we...

    This song is not about death, on the contrary, it connects us all with the universe, it opens our souls and makes us feel full of love. To me the most beautiful song ever written,

    when i first heard time, before that it was
    Chicago Bulls tune when the team entered the floor
    then i heard time. I am so sorry for the loss
    of your soulmate. The tears stream down my face
    every day too. I lost everyone i cared for.The 2
    things which keep me alive are God who can do all things, and the 14 songs I have composed over 21
    years. i have copywrited only 3. We are the peop;e who cam face reality. I miss her too.

    This lyrics are from a song I wrote. How could you leave, in that way? thought wed be together
    on this day. But you are gone untul the hands of
    Jesus take me away, and we cant handle the memories. dba JFobs

    This song describes my feelings perfectly right now. I have a serious illness, awith no cure (yet) and my "soul mate" and I recently stopped talking (I don't know why. His choice,) I feel this song deep inside my soul and tears are shamelessly pouring down my face as I type this. I have lost my soulmate and needed to embrace this song today, let the tears out and let him go.

    This song is about realizing your own mortality, and the fact that time is flowing much like a river. No matter what you do, the water in the river (time in our lives) flows to the sea (death), it can't be stopped or slowed.
