"All Things in Time" as written by and Dinning/guss/phillips/nichols....
Call me up when you need
Strangers often deceive
And there's something so freeing
To call out a name
And someone's believing

I've been changing my mind
Through with looking behind
It's a crash course in life
The best you can do is get by
No getting out alive
I'll hold a light for you to see
All things in time, all you'll ever need

Something I can't explain
Keeps me running, afraid
And every day
Looks me in the face and says
"Who'd you think you were, anyway?"
If you'll hold a light for me to see
All things in time, all we'll ever need
Well, you told me so
That we'd seen all this before
So what is it that keeps us coming back for more?

I'll hold a light for you to see
All things in time, all you'll ever need
All things in time, all we'll ever need

    General CommentI love the line "everyday looks me in the face and says who'd you think you were anyway"

    Just a classic Glen Phillips line. He can cut to the heart so quick.

    General Commenton the rare occasion that i do hear this song, it reminds me of my old friends. it makes me truly believe that a friendship is one of life's beautiful things; knowing that friends can grow separately without growing apart

    General CommentThis came out when an ex and I were doing the whole break-up then get back together thing. Almost 20 years later and we still talk and meet up now and then. To me, this song is us.
