"It's only a matter of time". I've heard that phrase a million times, but never thought too much about what it really means. Isn't everything only a matter of time when it comes right down to it?

************************************

 

Stevie Ray Vaughan wrote this song, which has always been a favorite of mine. It has as beautiful of a melody as it does lyrics. If you are not familiar with the song, I HIGHLY encourage you give it a listen (a link is at the bottom of the page). It appeals to everyone who enjoys music- not just a single genre. I like to think that Stevie's dream came true for him after he was killed in a plane crash.

 

I am now dedicating this song to Grandma, who only has A Matter of Time.I hope this dream comes true for her, too.

Tick Tock

By Stevie Ray Vaughan

 

One night while sleeping in my bed

I had a beautiful dream

That all the people of the world got together

On the same wavelength

And began helping one another

Now in this dream universal love was the theme of the day

Peace and understanding and it happened this way

 

The sick, the hungry, had smiles on their faces

The tired and the homeless had family all around

The streets and the cities were all beautiful places

And the walls came tumblin' down

 

People of the world all had it together

Had it together for the boys and the girls

And the children of the world look forward to a future

 

Remember

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away

 

I had a vision of blue skies from sea to shining sea

All the trees in the forest stood strong and tall again

Everything was clean and pretty and safe for you and me

The worst of enemies became the best of friends

 

People of the world all had it together

Had it together for the boys and the girls

And the children of the world look forward to a future

 

Remember

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away

 

Remember that, remember that

Remember that, remember that

 

People of the world all had it together

Had it together for the boys and the girls

And the children of the world look forward to a future

 

Remember

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock people

Time's tickin' away
