Time Waits for No One

Yes, star crossed in pleasure the stream flows on by
Yes, as we’re sated in leisure, we watch it fly, yes
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me

Time can tear down a building, or destroy a woman’s face
Hours are like diamonds, don’t let them waste
Time waits for no one, no favors has he
Time waits for no one , and it won’t wait for me

Men, they build towers to their passing yes, to their fame everlasting
Here he comes chopping and reaping, hear him laugh at their cheating
Drink in your summer, gather your corn
The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me

The Rolling Stones, 1974

  1. An image well worth the literal thousand words … good capture! (Wee fellow may be strong enough to haul it in, but is he strong enough to stop it?) (Brrrrr …)
