Great Big Sea lyrics : "Time Brings"

Hearken to me both high and low
I'll sing for you a song
Of Kings and Queens, and rose-lipped maidens

Courting light foot lads

Now love is grand, when love is new

The heart blood, it runs strong
There's nothing a doting lad won't do
To keep his princess warm

He'll tease her with poems and promises
He'll ask her out to dance

He'll cajole and he'll beg
And he'll always win
In bitter-sweet romance


For time it comes, and time it goes
It makes the strongest tree to bend
Kings and Queens have no defence

Time brings all things to an end.

But he goes out, with his drinking pals

His eyes begin to roam
He forgets all about the brown-eyed beauty
Who now, sits home alone

There's no more walks, down lover's lane
There's no more wine in the sun

All that's left is a hollow pain
Time, alas you've won


Now all who wish for love to stay

And last your whole life through
Keep ahead of time me boys
And never be untrue
