Time is a joker, time is a thief
Time leaves you trembling like summer’s last leaves
Time is killer ruthless and strong
One day you’re living, the next day you’re gone

Time is a liar, time is a crook
Time has you caught like a fish on a hook
Time is the distant sound of a song
One day you’re singing, the next day you’re gone

And you try so hard to fight it
But there’s nothing that you can do
But praying there’ll be time yet
Before time catches up with you

Time is a riddle, time is a maze
Time leaves you searching in vain in the haze
Time is an athlete with wings on his feet
All you can do is accept your defeat

And you try so hard to fight it
But there’s nothing that you can do
But praying there’ll be time yet
Before time catches up with you
