A World of Time When I was young and in my prime, It seemed my world was made of time. Long years have passed, without a doubt, As I let a world of time go running out. cho: All the things that I would do, If I had time to be with you To make up for the hours and the days I let a world of time slip away. When I was young, it seemed to me There wasn't a thing I couldn't be. Sad experience lets me know How you lose your illusions when you grow. I don't know how I could have been so dumb! I wasted my youth on being young. As if that were quite enough to be. They say wisdom comes with age, and is not free. If I had met you in a younger day, It might have been different; who's to say? But since I didn't, if you'll care, A world of time together we can share. Copyright 1991, Bob Clayton, Silver Spring, MD The tune is reminiscent of "When You and I were Young, Maggie" on the chorus, but it's impossible to truly annotate it here. Someday, there'll be a recording of it and a bunch of my other songs. I have a songbook available, but it's not the same as hearing 'em. BC BC oct99
