"When Time Stood Still" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Far beyond the things you see
Time rolls on eternally
Got a thing about it
Just can't live without it

Sitting there inside your mind
Just waiting for the clock to chime
On a lonely line
Stood a lonely man

No pictures on an empty wall
No body there no one at all
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still

Days line up outside the door
Thought time had stopped there was no more
Been a lonely world
Such a lonely world

No pictures on an empty wall
No Toulouse, Vincent, or Pablo
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still

No big machine or April showers
No submarines no plastic flowers
Just echoes in the ivory towers
When time stood still

When time stood still

When time stood still

When time stood still

    My OpinionI can't help thinking that this song is a memorial to John Lennon, and is lamenting the tragic circumstances of his death, which had occurred within that year. It's a very beautiful song, and certainly a worthy memorial, if that's what it is.
