"Time" as written by Gregg Wattenberg, Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk....
Time, where did you go?
Why did you leave me here alone?
Wait, don't go so fast
I'm missing the moments as they pass

Now I've looked in the mirror and the worlds getting clearer
So wait for me this time
I'm down I'm down on my knees I'm begging for all your sympathy
But you (I'm just an illusion) you don't seem to care (I wish that I could)

You humble people everywhere (I don't mean to hurt you)
Now I've looked in the mirror and the worlds getting clearer
I'll take what you give me. Please know that I'm learning
So wait for me this time

I should've know better
I shouldn't have wasted those days
And afternoons and mornings
I threw them all away

Now this is my time
I'm going to make this moment mine.
(I shouldn't have wasted those days)
I'll take what you give me. Please know that I'm learning

I've looked in the mirror
My world's getting clearer
So wait for me this time

    General CommentI always feel as if time is moving way too fast and that I am in a stand still. It's a great song to get one into Chantal's music.

    General CommentI'm extremely surprised at the lack of comments on this...I thought everyone knew/loved this song! =P but anyway, yeah, I'm listening to this song right now, and it's just...reflective. thinking back on your life, and wanting to fix everything...I remember being outside on a rainy day and listening to this song and just...feeling so inspired.

    General Commenti love this song :)

    its just about how you should really use your time wisely, dont waste it, make something of it, something you'll remember, good memories..
    espeically dont waste your time regretting the past.

    move forward!

    Song MeaningI love this song. The only line I don't understand in this song is "But you (I’m just an illusion) you don’t seem to care (I wish that I could) You humble people everywhere (I don’t mean to hurt you)" Anyone want to share their insight?
