"Your Time Is Gonna Come" as written by and Jimmy Page John Paul Jones....
Lyin' cheatin' hurtin that's all you seem to do
Messin' around with every guy in town
Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new
Always the same playin' your game
Drive me insane trouble is gonna come to you
One of these days and it won't be long
You'll look for me but baby I'll be gone
This is all I gotta say to you woman

Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come

Made up my mind to break you this time
Won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry
Do want you want, I won't take the brunt
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore
Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay
Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart
People talkin' all around
Watch out woman, no longer
Is the joke gonna be on my heart
You been bad to me woman
But it's coming back home to you

Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come

    General Commentcheesy?

    O my dear friend you must live life. Genuine emotion is never Cheesy.

    Plant pours out the real emotion here. Listen again and thank me when she breaks your heart and you realize Robert felt your pain.


    nothin' but love for you mate

    General CommentPlant isn't pouring out emotion, Zep stole this song from somebody.

    But its still not cheesy

    General CommentThis track brilliantly showcases the superb talent of ALL 4 band members. The organ, the guitar, the cascading drums and those crying vocals... when I listen to it it's like I've stepped into a parallel universe where EVERYTHING is surreal. Flashback to September, 1980... I remember when Zeppelin announced their final tour (nobody knew it would be the final announcement). I was on my way to see a buddy of mine (who ALWAYS manages to get hot tickets) when over the car radio a dejay in Toronto played "Your Time is Gonna Come". I remember singing out loud to the song and thinking hot AWESOME that concert was going to be. A few days later, John Bonham died and the tour was cancelled. My time HALF came along many years later when I saw Page & Plant's No Quarter tour which WAS the best concert I have ever seen, bar none!

    General CommentYeah, that two-timing woman is gonna get what she deserves. DAMMIT! Using people, not caring about anyone else. She gonna get hurt and she hurt me so bad I'll laugh when she is in the gutter. HA! Spot on Mr. Plant, soul of a woman was created below.
