I was sitting with an old friend of mine
When suddenly his face turned into a page of my life
And I reckoned I should move on down the line
Take myself a look at this thing they call time

When I returned he asked, where did you go to without a trace
What did you see and what did you hear?
And was it what you expected to find
On your journey through time.

Oh time, time, time
Ain't it funny how it controls my life
You see I might not ever die
If it was not for time

I replied, "You know man, the shadow's on the ground
Tunnels into my past I'd care not to go down."
And the Lord he was still on my side
I could see him in the trees and the sky
But I couldn't stop thinking bout

Time, time, time
Ain't it funny how it controls my life
You see I might not ever die
If it was not for time

All the houses that I passed by the lives that i could choose
Different journeys that I could try
All the people they're approachable they had nothing to lose
Cause they did not care about time

Oh time, time, time
Ain't it funny how it controls my life
You see I might not ever die
If it was not for time

Well, I got back home and I had this empty feeling inside
I had a burning desire
Me and my friend finally put a finger on what it was
It was the need to rid myself of time

Oh time, time, time
Ain't it funny how it controls my life
You see I might not ever die
if it were not for time
