Lyrics

Now as the wheel of life turns faster Now as the seasons seem to fly I see so many things at last, but didn't see the time go by I've known delight, I've known disaster The caviar, the humble pie From the absurd to the sublime I didn't see the time go by I didn't see the years roll on I didn't know the road would bend Refused to see when youth was gone Pretending it might never end Now, there is price to pay for every day I threw away It seems I've wasted half a lifetime Within the blinking of an eye I didn't hear the midnight chime I didn't see the time go by In still of nights and brief romances I kissed the girls and made them cry While there were balconies to climb I didn't see the time go by I was the guy with all the answers, The halfway-truths, the little lies So sure, so certain in my prime I didn't see the time go by I hit the heights, I bit the dirt I left some wreckage in my way I didn't see that lies can hurt I didn't know how hearts can break And now, they come to haunt my mind, The lives I touched and left behind I've sung a hundred songs of longing, Of sweet regret and hope run dry I've searched for melody and rhyme, But never saw how time can fly, Newer saw the darkening sky I was a minstrel of my time Who did not see the time go by
