Time Is Passing Us By (Album Version) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

The moon is low on the southland

The frogs are asleep on the lake

Did you know that tears run in rivulets

And hearts can repeatedly break

And this may well be the last time

If my spirits don't pick up and fly

For though it's sad

It may well be true

That our time is passing us by


Occasionally you have called for me

I've always tried to be there

But it seemed whenever my train pulled in

You never did really care

And the only thing I could decipher

From the corner of your roving eye

Was that you and I

Were the first ones to know

That our time was passing us by


Well it was fun for the first few years

Playing Legend In Our Time

And there were those who discussed the fact

That we drifted apart in our prime

And we haven't got too much in common

Except that we're so much alike

And I hate it for though

You're a big part of me

But our time is passing us by


So I can sit here in my silver chair

You can stay there on your gold

You can say you've got commitments

And I can say I'm growing old

And I can get up and make comments

On the color of the evening sky

But our ships have come home

And the night's rolling in

And our time is passing us by


But cast us adrift

And cross a few stars

And I'm good for one more try
