Lyrics: 

V1
sundials and sand timers
moon shadows and stars

seasons changing colors
photographs and memoirs

time we share is ours....
time is ours today

PC
time is only lost
when we throw it away
then time is lost

C
time passes
time transforms
time wasted is lost for evermore
but memories last
of cherished times past

so let's embrace time now
and make it ours
each minute
each hour
each day
let's not let our time
fade away

V2
milestones of history
calendars and diaries

cityscapes and technology
dates of anniversaries

time we give is love...
time is love today

PC
time is only lost
when we throw it away
then time is lost

C
time passes
time transforms
time wasted is lost for evermore
but memories last
of cherished times past

so let's embrace time now
and make it ours
each minute
each hour
each day
let's not let our time
fade away

I particularly love the verses here, with the imagery you lay out, especially the first one with the sundials. Also "stars/memoirs" is a very creative rhyme, don't think I've heard it before, so good work there! Chorus is also great, and the line "Time wasted is lost for evermore, but memories last" is particularly poignant. Good work!

Brilliant lyrics Liz!!! Dunno how you always manage to create something wonderful that also seems unique and unlike other songs! I love the structure of this one...how you cover our various ways of measuring and tracking time...then that pre-chorus cautions us about wasting our precious time while the chorus really teaches and seals the deal! Wonderful message and just awesome writing!
