Who Knows Where the Time Goes?









I spent last week with my mon and my sister at my dad's hospital bedside. He had serious surgery. As we were there in intensive care this Nina Simone song kept coming to me. I thought I would share it with you:


(the song begins about 2:10 into the video)


WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES
(1966) Sandy Denny

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?
