"Time Waits for No One" as written by David Robert/puerta Pack and Christopher North....
Hurry up, get along, be on your way
And make sure that your certain
It's not the wrong day
Punctual people are lost in their plight
To become unprecedented when they arrive
Why am I searching and when will I know?
Are the years that I've waited with nothing to show?
I'm ready to listen I'm ready to win
But I can't wait much longer before we begin
Time waits for no-one
Time waits for no-one no-one,no-one
There's time to conceive in and time to expire
Though the time 'twixt the two tells the tale that transpires so why must we continually disturb the universe
With decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse
So people don't worry 'bout where you've gone wrong cause you know if you hurry it takes twice as long
Relax and forget about what's to be done, it's time to have fun
Time waits for no-one
Time waits for no-one
It really doesn't matter much to me
I know the best times are timeless, you'll see...

    General Comment"The best times are timeless, you'll see" is the best line, a great ending, subtly suggesting the mystical state in which it becomes apparent that now lasts forever (it's always now). Another great line is "Why must we continually disturb the universe with decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse". This is directly quoting T.S. Eliot from his "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock": "Do I dare
    Disturb the universe?
    In a minute there is time
    For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."

    This is a great poem - if you like progressive rock lyrics, check out T.S. Eliot:
    bartleby.com/198/…

    And why do we dare disturb the universe with our decisions and revisions? I guess because we are daring! There is nothing wrong with human activity and creativity in itself - what the poet decries here is that it is not given the appreciation and savoring it (and everything else) deserves. Basically I think Ambrosia's lyrics are putting a spin on the adage to live in the moment and seize the day. We are living too hectically, and in our manic activity and race to accomplish we are missing both the simple beauties and the deeper meanings of being alive. That is not a new thought. The spin, I believe, is in that zen-like last line, which alludes to the possibility that we will all eventually wake up to the inevitable reality that each moment of our lives has been and will be beautiful and meaningful beyond measure or words. Someday we will all live in the Now. I hope it's soon ;-)
