A TIME FOR EVERYTHING

Copyright 2011 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

Iím a dead man walkiní through the halls
Of a prison I have made
I turned away from all the ones I loved
And now itís time to pay
In the darkest depths of your mind youíll find
Curled up on the floor
All the hopes you had for your life
That you hoped for, now you hope for no more

 

Thereís a time to give and a time to take
Like the ebb and flow of tide
Thereís a time for thought and a time for deeds
Sometimes these two collide
I never thought about the things I did
As I lived from day to day
But mindless acts always have their costs
Now I canít find, I cannot find my way

 

A restless heart can lead us to
A better place thatís found by few
But wanderlust can also close the door
On the world that we once knew
On my selfish quest that went nowhere
I severed all the ties
To a life that might have kept me whole
If I hadnít been, I had not been so unwise

 

Iím a dead man walkiní through the halls
Of a prison I have made
I turned away from all the ones I loved
And now itís time to pay
In the darkest depths of your mind youíll find
Curled up on the floor
All the hopes you had for your life
That you hoped for, now you hope for no more

 

Thereís a time for peace and a time for war
And all that each may bring
Thereís a time for love, and a time for hate
A time for everything
When we canít tell when the time is right
We flounder on the shore
When we lose our way and no oneís there
To reach out for, we reach out for no more

 

(Oh-O, Oh-O-Oh-O-Oh)
----- Thereís a time for everything
(Oh-O, Oh-O-Oh-O-Oh)
----- Thereís a time for everything
(Oh-O, Oh-O-Oh-O-Oh)
----- Thereís a time for everything
