    Lyrics

    Older chests reveal themselves
    Like a crack in a wall
    Starting small, and grow in time
    And we all seem to need the help
    Of someone else
    To mend that shelf
    Too many books
    Read me your favorite line

    Papa went to other lands
    And he found someone who understands
    The ticking, and the western man's need to cry
    He came back the other day
    I know some things in life may change
    And some things they stay the same

    Like time, there's always time
    On my mind
    So pass me by, I'll be fine
    Just give me time

    Older gents sit on the fence
    With their cap in hand
    Looking grand
    They watch their city change
    Children scream, or so it seems,
    Louder than before
    Out of doors, and into stores with bigger names
    Mama tried to wash their faces
    But these kids they lost their graces
    And daddy lost at the races too many times

    She broke down the other day
    I know some things in life may change
    But some things they stay the same

    Like time, there's always time
    On my mind
    So pass me by, I'll be fine
    Just give me time
    Time, there's always time
    On my mind
    Pass me by, I'll be fine
    Just give me time
