"Who Knows Where the Time Goes" as written by and Sandy Denny....
Across the evening sky all the birds are leaving
Oh but then you know it was time for them to go
By the winter fire I will still be dreaming
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

Sad deserted shore your fickle friends are leaving
Oh but then you know it was time for them to go
But I will still be here I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

I know I'm not alone while my love is near me
I know that it's all until it's time to go
All the storms in winter and the birds in spring again
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

Who knows where the time goes
Who knows where the time goes

    General CommentAs it's not been mentioned, this song was written by the late, great Sandy Denny, and first appeared on Fairport Convention's "Unhalfbricking" album.

    I firmly recommend checking out the original. It's been covered numerous times, but my personal favourite is Nina Simone's heartbreakingly fragile version that's available on her "Anthology" CD.

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. This is quite simply my favourite song ever. Eva's ability to turn other peoples songs into her own is something incredibley special. This song sung with her incredible voice moves me like no other, and has brought enough tears to my eyes to fill a small swimming pool.

    It is devastatingly beautiful, and a beauiful observation on life - as well as a top-rate ballad. If you like this try Eva's version of 'True Colours', or even Tracy Chapman's 'All That You Have is Your Soul'
