This Is The Time

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

we walked
on the beach
beside that old hotel
they're tearin' it
down now
but it's just as well

i haven't shown you
everything
a man can do
so stay with me baby
i got plans for you

this is the time
to remember
'cause it will not
last forever

these are the days
to hold on to
'cause we won't
although
we'll want to

this is the time
but time is
gonna change
you've given me
the best of you
but now i need
the rest of you

did you know that
before you came
into my life
it was some
kind of miracle
that i survived

someday
we will both
look back
and have to laugh
we lived through
a lifetime
and the aftermath

this is the time
to remember
'cause it will not
last forever

these are the days
to hold on to
'cause we won't
although
we'll want to

this is the time
but time is
gonna change
i know we've gotta
move somehow
but i don't wanna
lose you now

sometimes
it's so easy
to let a day
slip on by
without even seein'
each other at all

but this is the time
you'll turn back to
and so will i
and those will be days
you can never recall

and so
we embrace again
behind the dunes
this beach is so cold
on winter afternoons

ah but
holding you close
is like holding
the summer sun
i'm warm
from the memory
of days to come

this is the time
to remember
'cause it will not
last forever

these are the days
to hold on to
'cause we won't
although
we'll want to

this is the time
but time is
gonna change
you've given me
the best of you
but now i need
the rest of you
