If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day 'til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.
From: "Time in a Bottle", by Jim Croce
Was it a day with you at Wrigley?
Or an extra day at the beach?
A chance to see a few more recitals?
A tack, a turn, or broad reach?
What will we miss, I wonder?
What should we have done?
Sorry, Superman was busy.
Sorry there was so little fun.
You see I used to save time in a bottle,
Time I’d supposedly earned.
But you can’t see time, now can you?
So, the rules were easily turned.
What comes now, I wonder.
When the grains of sand are lost?
What did we lose together?
What has it really cost?
There’s one sure thing going forward,
One particular thing I know.
Time stands still for no one.
So the bottle has to go.
