Lyrics

I've been hard to reach lately

I've been really out of touch 

I've been missing you mama

I've been drinking too much

For the longer the winter time 

The more I wish that you were here

And the days seem to get a little shorter

More and more every year

 

Well, time is what you make of it

And routine is the enemy of time

We do the same thing every day

While it all goes flying by

Oh, mama, how it all goes flying by...

 

I wish that I could hold you

And tell you just how I feel

I'd let you know I'm doing pretty good

I guess this time it's for real

If we could go for one last picnic 

Or maybe just have one more meal

I'd burn us some kosher hot-dogs 

On top of an old charcoal grill

But you flew just like an eagle 

And you fought just like a dog

With the wings of an angel

And the heart of a song

 

Well, time is what you make of it

And routine is the enemy of time

We do the same thing every day

While it all goes flying by

Oh, mama, how it all goes flying by...
