Lyrics

(No Slowing) The Hands of Time 1. Miss Suzy Small Town used to dance like a dream Made the move to Big City, bright lights But "Flashdance" was only a movie she'd seen And pounding pavement made the money tight So after the sun set on Sunset Boulevard She'd slide down poles and bare 'most all for rent At thirty-five she felt she'd played her last card She'd give anything to be sixteen and innocent (CHORUS): The hands of time won't slow down Life takes you to the next round Face each day, embrace the learning, roll with the wheels that keep on turning The lesson is love, the lesson is life Welcome growing There ain't no slowing the hands of time 2. Mr. Used-To-Be Good-Looking Corporate Ace faced fifty Ain't life full of surprises Found himself reminiscing his college days Family life was too filled with compromises So he dyed the gray right out of his hair Pursued a come-on from the coffee-place chick Walked right out on his wife of thirty years Then called her up whenever he felt homesick (CHORUS REPEAT): The hands of time won't slow down Life takes you to the next round Face each day, embrace the learning, roll with the wheels that keep on turning The lesson is love, the lesson is life Welcome growing There ain't no slowing the hands of time (INSTR. SOLO) 3. Grandmother Joan's heart decided to give in when she'd made it to seventy-nine Her only son's theory was wearin' thin that for another ten years she'd be fine Family gathered around the bed, cryin' Not ready to see her pass away Grandmother whispered: "No big deal, I'm just dying But first, there's something I need to say". (CHORUS REPEAT): The hands of time won't slow down Life takes you to the next round Face each day, embrace the learning, roll with the wheels that keep on turning The lesson is love, the lesson is life Welcome growing There ain't no slowing the hands of time (TAG): Welcome growing There ain't no slowing the hands of time Copyright © 2001 Ann-Marita Garsed.
