    No sé cuando fue la primera vez que escuché esta canción. Si recuerdo, sin embargo, la primera vez que presté atención a la letra. Estaba en Londres, en una etapa especialmente feliz y activa de mi vida, y me dije que esta canción debía recordarme lo que no quería que me llegase a pasar: aburrimiento, monotonía, envejecer sin haber vivido cosas... la verdad es que no hay nada que me guste más que mirar atrás y ver todas las cosas que he vivido, sitios dónde he estado, personas que he conocido, etc.

 

 TIME

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day

You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town

Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

 

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

And then one day you find ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

 

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it´s sinking

And racing around to come up behind you again

The sun is the same in a relative way, but you´re older

Shorter to breath and one day closer to death

 

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time

Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way

The time is gone, the song is over, thought I´d something more to say

 

 

Demoledor...
