TIME (Love's the Only Way)

This song was a combination of 3 songs Wes was working on and found a synergy between all 3. The slide guitar riff and the acoustic structure were two different songs that fell together one night of messing around with a looping station. The reprise of this song is an old song from the beginning of the century that Wes's grandfather taught him long ago. This song is dedicated in his memory as he passed away in October 2011. This song is about the limited amount of time we have on this earth. Anyone who tells you, that you have a the time in the world is lying through their teeth. You really don't. If there are things you want to do with your life, you need to do them now and live in the present, because time can easily be taken away. Love is the only way.

LYRICS:
Time, Time, Time, Time... Let me tell you about time
Time is just a string of moments, tied into a line
Time, Time, Time, Time... Time is but a thread
and your line could break any time, so careful where you tread
Time, Time, Time, Time... time don't mean a thing
If you live inside each little moment, you'll see love is everything

But I don't know all the right words to say
Cos I know this world it ain't made that way
If you give your life to time, you'll surely slip away
How much time do you need to see loves the only way?
How much time do you need to see loves the only way?

Time, Time, Time, Time... Time ain't on your side
Time will have you looking backwards, just sitting wondering why
Time, Time, Time, Time... You can surely look ahead
but life is just a thin red line, tomorrow you could be dead
Time, Time, Time, Time... now is everything
If you live inside them little moments, you'll see love is everything

But I don't know all the right words to say
Cos I know this world it ain't made that way
If you give your life to time, you'll surely slip away
How much time do you need to see loves the only way?
How much time do you need to see loves the only way?
