Only Time Can Tell
written by Gary Marks © 1985 Arewea Co. ASCAP

I am not the one you want babe,
we'll have to leave to memories
the love that could have grown.

Searching inside to see you again,
I see I could have loved you, I knew you in the end, oh time.

Yes I remember the way you moved,
walking so cool as we walked down the streets.
And I remember so very well the day you said -
with love and life, only time can tell.

Pieces of the story fall out of place
like ashes from a fire scattered with no trace.

Things are never naturally kind, our eyes now look away
to separate worlds in future time, oh time.

But I remember you holding me
loving away a snowy day.
And I remember as you looked at me, you said - -
in the end, love is honesty.

So on we go, where our lives will take us
darkness is sure to fall and fall away.
Just one thing left to say - -
baby I wish you well, I wish you love someday, in time.

Yes I remember the way you moved,
walking so cool as we walked down the streets.
And I remember so very well the day you said - -
with love and life, only time can tell.

Only time can tell.
