Song Lyric Sunday – Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce

 

Time is such an interesting concept. When we are younger we don’t think to much about it, because it seems to go by so slowly. I really didn’t think to much about time until I turned 40. That year I had my own health crisis and I remember thinking that all I wanted was to spend more time with my family irregardless of what that meant for me physically. Ironically my husband was thinking the same thing and last week he started thinking of that again, in the sense that he hoped there would be more time for two amazing people in our lives.

This song was what he was thinking of three years ago, and the other night, so I felt it was fitting to share it here. I wish I could save time in a bottle and I would give it to the Helen and her fiance so that they could “make the days last forever” and then spend them together.

Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce
Written by Jim Croce
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with youIf I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with
