"Old Man Time" as written by and Richard On Marc Andrew Roberge....
I have been falling again for so long.
For so long.
I've been off that track.
There's a mystery in that and it's strong.
But once more I'm asking for your time.
A few between the two then I'm gone.
I don't think I'll be coming back.
I'm not coming back.

It seems to me, you & me,
Aren't where we're supposed to be.
We're lost somewhere on the seventh sea.
I found Time, at least I thought I did.
You slipped away, yeah you slipped my grip.
So this day that I stood my ground,
Wait for Old Man Time.

Once again a day's flown by.
On a journey roads get hot.
So hot, I'm walking around unclothed.
Heated to the bone I'm bare-boned.
Bare-boned I'm thrown, dethroned again.
I missed the man by a minute again.
But next time gonna have my shot.
Gonna see me with Time.

It seems to me, you & me,
Aren't where we're supposed to be.
We're lost somewher on an endless sea.
I found Time, at least I thought I did.
You slipped away, yeah you slipped my grip.
So this day that I stood my ground
You saw me lost but forget it I'm found.
Right here at the Black Rock
Lay your cards down, Mr. Old Man Time.

Oh, I tracked you down old man.
When I walk at night I see you
And I follow you old man.
But the Black Rock is never too far away.
I'm dying just to hear what you say.
So next time I'll be comin' round,
Gonna see me with Time.

It seems to me, you & me,
Aren't where we're supposed to be.
We're lost somewher on an endless sea.
I found Time, at least I thought I did.
You slipped away, yeah you slipped my grip.
So this day that I stood my ground
You think you lost me but forget it I'm found.
So right here at the Black Rock
Lay your cards down, Mr. Old Man Time.

You're not too far for me.
I've waited my life for jus a minute to see.

    General Commentohhhh...this is my favorite o.a.r. song, possibly ever. still completely clueless to what the lyrics mean, but i love all the references to other o.a.r. songs ("crazy game of poker", "black rock", delicate few"). anybody with any clue into the lyrics?

    General CommentThe song is about a guy who loves a girl, but she doesn't return it. He wants to say one last thing to her before he moves on. he probably felt really comfortable, but all of a sudden she ended it. i remember after my break up i wanted to go out and explore and not have a schedule and just see what life was going to bring. i think that's how he feels-that he loves the girl, he feels they should be together, but he's letting it go and see what happens in time.

    General Commenti love the drum work in this song so much.

    Ohh yah and the meaning. I dont think he is so much looking for a girl as "Old man time" his life is running so fast that he never has time to just go out and see the world and see what happens to him

    General CommentThe song means this, if we spend all our life just saying when I get time I'll do whatever, then soon you'll realize time is gone.
