lyrics

Forgotten Time
lyrics & music by carrie clark

He eats limes to make the sunshine and ice cream to bring the rain
He’s a man who speaks in riddles while he takes away your pain
And he’ll show you in a mirror what you thought no one can see
He’ll show you in a mirror all that you can be

Quietly he strums an old guitar with pick marks worn through the wood
And he’ll sing a song about another day when life wasn’t as good
While the whiskey a dream and the smoke wraps around him like a cloak
Of dreams left unanswered from a lifetime and this song is what he wrote

A quarter for your thoughts because inflation took the dime
Nestled in a memory of a long forgotten time

A dusty road we have traveled to what end no one can see
But the whiskey and the cigarettes, this guitar and an old melody
But this whiskey is driving me to what end no one can see
But this tired road and this old guitar and the bottle that is bound to save me

A quarter for your thoughts because inflation took the dime
Nestled in a memory of a long forgotten time

He eats limes to make the sunshine and ice cream to bring the rain
