Time in a bottle

Time in a bottle

Have you’ve ever read the lyrics from your favourite song? When reading those words, without hearing the music, these words become poetry. For example this song by Jim Groce, Time in a bottle. 

Time in a bottle

There is something mystical about the concept time. It has inspired many to write about it. Especially the need for mankind to stop this thing called time. Groce did his best to express his needs to stop time. For a good reason. He didn’t want it to go to waste. To hold on to the moments that were precious for him.

Yes, past tense here. He died on September 20th 1973 at the age of 30. The unfairness of his dead is great. When he was finally on the verge of a great success, the plane he was on crashed. This was days before his new single “I got a name” was about to be released.

The song Time in a bottle could be seen as a prediction, some say. To me it’s to be considered as one of the most beautiful English songs about love. When silencing the music, only the words remain. Words, beautiful words.

Time in a bottle

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
