Starr, Edwin - Time Lyrics



Well, well
Well, well, well, well, well

Oh, let me tell you
Time is the one thing everybody fears
It just expires with no regards to years
They say time can bring about a change (listen)
But I ain't see a doggone thing
But they say

(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Oh, every day they tell me, y'all
I keep hearing them saying
(It takes time)

"Peace is the answer" that's what people say
But it looks like peace is getting further away
Together we stand, and divided we fall
But we are still divided by that unseen wall
But they say

(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Ever since I was a little bitty boy, they say it
(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Everyday I hear the same, the same old thing

They say time
They say time
They say time
They say time
But I wanna know, y'all
(How much time will it really take
Before this world of ours is in a better shape?)
Somebody tell me

Well, well, well
The day when time brings on that blessed change
On, that day the whole world will sing
Time will have washed all our fears away
And peace will have brought us a brand new day

(Time)
But it takes time
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Every day, I keep hearing them telling me that
(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Oh, Lord I wanna know, now

    Did you know that Edwin Starr is buried in the UK.



    My brother Pete often visits his grave to pay tribute and place flowers on his grave, because he is the man that brought us great joy and pleasure during our youth through listening and dancing to his music.

    Edwin's grave is located plot No H19-91 in the traditional area at Wilford Hill [southern] cemetery, Nottingham. Climb the path up the hill to the main building.
    The grave is located to the right hand side of the building about 100 yards away from the building.

    May ES RIP.
