Time in a bottle

on June 8, 2013

I’ve always loved the song “Time In A Bottle” By: Jim Croce I used to sing it to C when he was a baby. I never knew he wrote it after his wife told him she was pregnant with their son Adrian in 1970.  It still rings so true to me almost 9 years later, there never is enough time and if I could I would live every moment I’ve had with my kids again. We get so little time (oh how I wish I had a Tardis 😉 and I want to fill every moment with as many memories as possible because time is so increadibly precious.

“Time In A Bottle”
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with.
