Everybody's saying it's just about time
But it's partly about space
The rest is all about not dividing things up
And leaving every last little piece in its place
You can start out slow
You can speed things up
You can take things as they are
Your average person is afraid to talk about death
But not afraid of driving a car
Take the whole ball of wax
Stick it to the facts
Life might stop on a dime
Sooner or later it's now or never
Don't you think it's just about time?

[Chorus]
Don't you think it's just about time?
Don't you think it's just about time?
Sooner or later it's now or never
Don't you think it's just about time?

You worry and you hurry and it's just about time
But it's partly about space
Everything that goes up must come down
And nothing's in the way until it gets in your face
It goes without saying that I must say
Some things are better left unsaid
Here and there
Gone everywhere
You may be just a-dreaming when you're
Waking up dead
Dying for love
Living in fear
Neither is a reason or rhyme
Sooner or later it's now or never
Don't you think it's just about time?

Somewhere beyond the dark and the dawn
Unsaid, unsung and unseen
Somewhere behind the back of your mind
Not beside, not before
Not even in between
Sitting in silence being in love
Looking for a mountain to climb
Sooner or later it's now or never
Don't you think it's just about time?

Some are denying it's just about time
Some don't believe in space
If you try to undo what's done been did
You'll mistake the static for the thrill of the chase
If time is money, space is credit
They're talking about it all over town
Are you rolling in the black or sinking in the red?
Is gravity the only thing that's holding you down?
It's hard to stop when you're picking up speed
Brother can you spare me a dime?
Sooner or later it's now or never
Don't you think it's just about time?

[Chorus]
