Here's an old favorite of mine ---

 

 

Wasted on the Way
Crosby, Stills & Nash


Look around me
I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way it used to be
I am older now
I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started long before I did
And there's so much time to make up everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Oh, when you were young
Did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers who had all the nerve
Look around you now
You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved
So much time to make up everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
So much love to make up everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away

"Time Keeps Flowing Like A River"... Alan Parsons Project.  A hauntingly beautiful song!  Seach for it, listen, and enjoy.  (You're welcome.)

How amusing. So many of you have posted Cher's "Turn Back Time", as I did.

Can it be that I am not the only one who dislikes (loathes, despises, and hates) this modern, technologically-advanced, politically-correct era?

But then, why should we hate it? We all chose to stand by and allow it to happen, thinking that it couldn't possibly affect us.

Just as we are doing again this very moment in Time. 

Lord Sesshoumaru - 殺生丸

 


I have a theory about that; want to hear it? 1st, you only have one chance to make a 1st impression; therefore, the 1st sound-bite out of your mouth has to be the right one or you'll lose your audience. Don't confuse "precise" with "politically correct"; they have different goals in mind. I think everybody would like to have a second chance at something; that's where the sound-bite "Turn Back Time" comes from. In general, you'd only want the benefits and not "the whole package" of that. There is a song that should be included in this "Songs about time theme": Toby Keith; I Wish I Didn't Know Now What I Didn't Know Then. The idea of getting a second chance at a better result is what's being expressed in the phrase "Turn back time", not necessarily re-living the whole experience. Therefore, if we take the time and effort to get it right, then maybe we can we can all get on the same page and agree to learn from the past, bring those lessons to the present, and actually get the result we all want without having to actually "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (Tyrone Davis), thereby benefitting from the Lessons  Learned (Tracy Lawrence) and fullfilling Imagine (John Lennon). Then maybe we could over-look 1st impressions and take a second look at where to go from here. Anything worth having is worth a second look. Don't blow it (you only have one chance to get a second look).

Time in a Bottle

Jim Croce

 

If I could save time in a bottle

the first thing I'd like to do

Is to save every day till eternity passes away 

Just to spend them with you 

 

If I could make days last forever

If words could make wishes come true 

I'd save every day like a treasure and then again 

I would spend them with you.

 

But there never seems to be enough time 

To do the things you want to do once you find them.

I've looked around enough to know that

You're the one I want to go through time with.

 

If I had a box just for wishes

And dreams that had never come true

The box would be empty except for the memory of how they were answered by you.
