Time Is The Final Currency (David Crosby)

Time is the final currency
Not money, not power
The time will come when you will give
anything for one more hour

Today I learned there are no secrets
Only time for them to unfold
And the patience to watch the scroll of truth
slowly be unrolled

There is a time to this
There is a flow
There is a tension here
like a hard bent bow
Ready to send up
Send up another one
Another spark in the night
and suddenly you realize
that this time it is all right

I watched the greatest miracle
Take three quarters of a year
To bring forth life and tiny breath
for all the world to hear

There is a time....

"CPR"     1998
