Song des Tages: Time Goes By




(Triumph: "Time Goes By", aus dem Album "Thunder Seven", 1984)

Can't you feel the thunder, rolling in a young man's heart
Can't you see the frustration that's tearing him apart
He's got a hunger for power, he wants to have it all
Sometimes he feels like he's banging his head up against the wall
Out in the real world living a lie
Can't seem to make the change, but he can't say why
As time goes by
Nobody really knows what to say, tomorrow is another day
That seems a million miles away, so far away

Time goes by, bridges burn and big wheels turn and
Time can't fly, will it ever bring you back again?
You know that I can't live without your love
Time goes by, you know I'll never make it alone
Make it alone

Can't you see the fire burning in a young girl's eyes
Does she think that she moves ahead if she cuts me down to size
Everybody's got two cents to try to buy some time
But they don't even know their own hearts
What can they know of mine?
Call out for reasons echoes the cry
She waits, anticipates; no reply as time goes by
Oh baby I don't know what to say
Tomorrow is another day
You seem a million miles away, so far away

Time goes by, bridges burn and big wheels turn and
Time can't fly, will it ever bring you back again?
You know that I can't live without your love
Time goes by, you know I'll never make it alone
Make it alone

We all bear witness as history unfolds
Let's hope tomorrow can deliver on the promise that she holds
Don't look back in anger, don't look ahead in fear
You just keep taking her as she comes until she comes in clear
The love you send out returns to you in time
The wheel gets turned around by those who try
For all their lives

Time goes by, bridges burn and big wheels turn and
Time can't fly, will it ever bring you back again?
You know that I can't live without your love
Time goes by, you know I'll never make it alone
Make it alone

Einfach geil. Seit ewigen Zeiten nicht gehört, aber immer noch saugut. Ich wußte gar nicht daß du die ollen Kanadier auch kennst. -)

Dazu passt der Rest der "Time"-Suite vom selben Album, nämlich die beiden Songs "Time Canon" und "Killing Time":

TIME CANON

Time and time and time again
Time after time after time
Round and round and round again
Time never waits
Time never ends
All of your life
All the time
Goes on by
By and by and by


KILLING TIME

Hanging out on the corner,
He's got no place to go.
She sits in an empty bedroom
Playing the radio.
Every day they're regretting
All the things never tried;
Every day they're dyin'
Just a little bit more inside.

All the lonely people,
Waiting all their lives,
They're empty and they're aching;
You can see it in their eyes.

Time is slipping away, passing us by,
You're wondering why but it's gone,
Gone forever my friend,
and it won't come again
So don't try to pretend you feel
Fine! Killing time, killing time...

You feel it's now or never,
But the words don't seem to come.
The fabric of your dreams
Starts to come undone.
You realize it's over,
Before it has begun.
You're reaching for something special
But that someone never comes.

You're on your own now,
But you're living out a lie.
This killing time is wasting you,
I can see it in your eyes.

Time is slipping away, passing us by,
You're wondering why but it's gone,
Gone forever my friend,
and it won't come again
So don't try to pretend you feel
Fine! Killing time, killing time...

The time we waste on hate,
Full of anger and jealousy.
The times we act so cruel,
All the times you turned on me.
All those lonely yesterdays
When we were killing time.
I needed you more than ever;
Couldn't you see it in my eyes?

Time was slipping away,
Passing us by, now I could cry
Cause it's gone. Gone forever, my friend
And it won't come again;
It's moved on and left us behind...

Time is slipping away, passing us by,
You're wondering why but it's gone,
Gone forever my friend,
and it won't come again
So don't try to pretend you feel
Fine! Killing time, killing time...

Eigentlich wollte ich mir diese Songs für später aufheben ... aber sei's drum. ;-) Danke für die Ergänzung, alter Zausel. :-)
