"We Should Only Have Time for Love" as written by Jim Rushing and Wayland Patton....
Today we laid old man Pate to rest
His big hands folded across his chest
God rest his soul just two days ago
He was in his yard waving to me

As I stood by his grave the impression was strong
One minute we're here and the next we're gone
And with each breath of life that is given to us
We should only have time for love

So tell me what can be gained by fussing and fighting
The answer is left up to us
I think it's time we learned enough is enough
Oh we should only have time for love

Sometimes I'm unwilling to open my eyes
Just too stubborn to compromise
When you stand your ground oh there's no backing down
That makes for a long bitter fight

And you know it's such a waste to engage in that
Tearing each other down in a tit for tat
When we could be hard at work building a trust
Oh we should only have time for love

So tell me what can be gained by fussing and fighting...

Well isn't it time we learned enough is enough
Oh we should only have time for love
