Time Was a Fine Lady (But She Got Away)

by Brother DeBuff

light appear to cover my
transfer inner other self
for long they knew my dreams
where in color
and codes
that lady i mean that lady
she knew all
even my name
she never ask or
say she just stare at me
along i have the secret to keep
she was in my mind that was for sure
her mouth spoke my words
and the color were not mine
yet is was on me
to see a song dance in heart
and my shoe's was keep time
lady who you be
i think i to need to love you wouldn't
mind would you
she said child I'm time
i move to fast to stop
for like of you
see you been watching 
this lady too long
when you should been use it wisely
this lady don't wait even for father time
from baby to man
you been so slow realize that time moving
nothing with you here today 
will the same in day to come
that why you can't handle lady me
if you think I'm joking ask your father
i knew him too when he was like you
young and undecided
