Time they say will give me grace,
But all I ever do is lose face.
Time they say will grow the child,
But all I ever do is grow more wild.
Time they say will cast a spell,
But to me it’s just a sounding bell.
Time they say is a crashing wave,
But then why do I feel so trapped in a cave?
Time they say scatters to the wind like birds;
But then why am I always at a loss for words?
Time they say will leave you beguiled;
And it’s true, I’m still just a child.
Time they say will bring you back to me,
But I find that hard to see,
Because it’s always from you I flee.
