"Time Is On My Side" as written by and Jerry Ragovoy....
Time is on my side, yes it is.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
Now you all were saying that you want to be free
But you'll come runnin' back (I said you would baby),
You'll come runnin' back (like I told you so many times before),
You'll come runnin' back to me.

Time is on my side, yes it is.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
You're searching for good times but just wait and see,
You'll come runnin' back (I said you would darling),
You'll come runnin back (Spent the rest of life with ya baby),
You'll come runnin' back to me.

Go ahead baby, go ahead, go ahead and light up the town!
And baby, do anything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around.
And I know, I know like I told you so many times before
You're gonna come back,
Yeah you're going to come back baby
Knockin', knockin' right on my door.

Time is on my side, yes it is.
Time is on my side, yes it is.
'Cause I got the real love, the kind that you need.
You'll come runnin' back (I knew you would one day),
You'll come runnin' back (Baby I told you before),
You'll come runnin' back to me.

Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is.
Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is.
Time, time, time is on my side

    General CommentI think that the man may be overconfident. The woman he loves could decide not to come back to him. The man thinks that given enough time, the woman will return to him as she has done many times before.

    General CommentI see this as meaning that she is just into partying and enjoying life to the fullest without regard to anyone else (including the mans point of view this song is coming from). But he understands her and knows why she does this so he always accepts her back because he loves her.

    General Commenti think it just means that he knows no matter what she'll go back to him and she probably keeps going back because he always takes her back.
