10000 Maniacs — Who Knows Where The Time Goes lyrics

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go?

Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time
Who knows where the time goes?
For who knows where the time goes?
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving

But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving

I do not count the time
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
Who knows where the time goes?
For who knows where the time goes?
And I am not alone while my love is near me

So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I know it will be so until it's time to go

I have no fear of time
And who knows where the time goesFor who knows how my love grows?
