  • Lyrics: Long before he 'came a man his mother taught him to understand that small things are better than the big. Even though he nodded twice the younger boy could recognize that small things are never quite as sweet. They're never quite as strong, they never have that glow. And Time goes by so slow. Long before she learned to play the little girl would tell herself that someday she would be a star. Even though she never tried the saddest part were all the lies that she'd say to make herself feel fine. 'Cause maybe there are things she wasn't meant to know. And time goes by so slow Time Goes by and I don't notice. All once clear seems out of focus. I reach out for the phone but never seem to pick it up. So in empty rooms I sit alone while empty words on radios whisper, "Time goes by. Time goes by. Time goes by." So? Long ago when they were young a man and woman had a son that they loved more than anything. But even so his father left, and the boy held all his bitterness inside him and never let it show. And everybody said eventually you'll grow. But time goes by so slow. Time Goes by and I don't notice. All once clear seems out of focus. I reach out for the phone but never seem to pick it up. So in empty rooms I sit alone while empty words on radios whisper, "Time goes by. Time goes by. Time goes by." So? Yesterday I called you up for no good reason I could think of. Even though the talk was nice it hurt a bit to recognize that all things end up in the past. Memories remain, but nothing really lasts. And time goes by so fast. Time goes by so fast.
