Where Has All the Time Gone By?

Well I’m looking back

Now I’m turning back

All the pages of days gone past

Growing with the changes

That gave way to circumstance

 

I remember your cooking

And home made apple pie

Dad playing ball with us

And teaching us how to drive

I remember being ill at times

With you there at my side

 

Oh this song I sing is one I bring

With all my love tonight

Where has all the time gone by?

When laughter was the language shared

And tears were never feared

Where has all the time gone by?

 

I guess you’ve known

We must have grown

One day we’d be on our own

Packing trunks full of memories

For the lonely days

 

One moved to Ft.  Lauderdale

To the comfort of the sun

Starting life all over

Finding a new love

One stayed in the hometown

And lives all alone

While eking out a living

Calling independence his home

 

Where has all the time gone by?

When laughter was the language shared

And tears were never feared

Where has all the time gone by?

 

Now I am in Chicago

And still I can’t forget

That forever wanting the country

But having no regrets

Oh the changes we all go thru

Seem to happen all at once

We live and learn and love and hurt

And try to readjust

 

But in the end we all survive

As we look back into our lives

And we wonder, yes we wonder

Oh we wonder, yes we wonder

Oh we wonder

Where has all the time gone by?
