Time Passages Lyrics

It was late in December, the sky turned to snow
All round the day was going down slow
Night like a river beginning to flow
I felt the beat of my mind go
Drifting into time passages
Years go falling in the fading light
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Well I'm not the kind to live in the past
The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don't last
Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these
Time passages
There's something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn
Don't know why you should feel
That there's something to learn
It's just a game that you play

Well the picture is changing
Now you're part of a crowd
They're laughing at something
And the music's loud
A girl comes towards you
You once used to know
You reach out your hand
But you're all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you're in there, you're just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Always loved this song. Even more meaningful now when I have these moments of wondering how life has gone by so fast.

Great and meaningfull lyrics.. Remember this from from riding the school bus in the late 70's and my older brothers and sister playing that un forgetable 70's music, what a gift

Reunited with an old friend, taking a walk down memory lane together. This sums up the experience perfectly.

first time I heard this song in the late 70's I was stoned and I was in awe, now I am no longer stoned but the beauty remains. A really beautiful song.
