Thinking of “Time” made me think of this Craig Douglas song.

 

Time will make the flowers grow,

Time will melt the ice and snow,

Time can make a forest from a drop of dew

But to make me forget your love

Yes, to make me forget your love

Is going to take much more than time

 

Time will change the winter scene

Time can turn the dessert green

Time can make a mountain disappear from view

But to make me forget your kiss

Oh that fabulous kiss you kiss

Is going to take much more than time

Much more than time

 

And if I live a thousand years

The thought that we’re apart

Would fill my eyes with tears

Time can make the sun grow cold

Time can wash the clouds of gold

Time who knows the miracle that time can do

But to make me forget your love

Yes, to make me forget your love

Is going to take much more than time

Much more than time

 

Time can make the sun grow cold

Time can wash the clouds of gold

Time who knows the miracle that time can do

But to make me forget your love

Yes, to make me forget your love

Is going to take much more than time
