"Time Gone By"
(Izzy Stradlin/Rick Richards)

Try to think back
Time gone by
Not much come back
But one thing I
Do remember,
Remember words were said

Time fills the pages
Turn the page
Time will not stop
It will have its way on you

Received a letter
from overseas
It said if you come back
Would you like to see me
Then I recognized me
Time has changed my face

I saw my brother
Last week today
I said, "What's been goin'?"
He said, "Same old thing"
Do you remember
When time was all we had

Never count the hours
Didn't count the days
Never stopped to wonder,
What time would bring
Time would bring
Time would bring
Time would bring
Time would bring
Time would bring
