Even tho' I know it's only
Me and my dreams
That drive me so let me go please
Let me go onto tomorrow
One day at a time
Now I know the only foe is time
22,000 days, 22,000 days it's not a lot,
It's all you got 22,000 days
22,000 nights, 22,000 nights, it's all you know
So start the show and this time
Feel the flow and get it right
Now the time when I first saw you is over and gone
Then I knew my life with you would go on
Knowing you so much longer
I've change in mind change for you
You have changed to mine
22,000 days, 22,000 days it's not a lot,
It's all you got 22,000 days
22,000 nights, 22,000 nights, it's all you know
So start the show and this time
Feel the flow and get it right
Everybody knows, it always shows
Wasting time's an aggravation
Got no time for confrontation
You want to take a lot
By love by law or stealth
Time's the only real wealth you have got
Even tho' I know it's only me and my dreams
That drive me so let me go please
Let me go onto tomorrow
One day at a time
Now I know the only foe is time
22,000 days, 22,000 days it's not a lot,
It's all you got 22,000 days
22,000 nights, 22,000 nights, it's all you know
So start the show 22,000 days
22,000 days, 22,000 days it's not a lot,
It's all you got 22,000 days
22,000 nights, 22,000 nights, it's all you know
So start the show 22,000 ways

    General Comment22,000 days - the number of days in an average human lifespan. It's not a lot, but it's all we've got, so make the most of each one!

    General CommentI have always thought this was one of the best Moody Blues songs ever.
    Certainly one of the best from this album (Long Distance Voyager).
    Time may indeed be the only real wealth we have: it's a shame we can't horde it the way we can gold.

    General CommentAfter 11,000 days the average person will be having a mid-life crisis, logically.
