Wings Of Time

(©1984 by John Hubbard)

Lost inside
A world of strife
Wasting time
As though to breathe were life

We live so fast
And learn so slow
While trying to grasp
The things we should not know

Oh wings of time
Carry me away
Across the open sea we fly
I just could not have stayed
Tis world was never meant for me
It's time I said goodbye
They can live their lives in happiness
By why can't I?

In this crowded place
I'm all alone
I need a place
A place to call my own

They can teach me to laugh
They can teach me to cry
They can teach me to live
But not to fly
