There Is A Time (Les Temps)

(Aznavour-Davis-Lees)


[NOTE: A huge thank you to my friend Lara for transcribing the French intro of the song for me! I could never offer this stuff to you without her help. :)]

(spoken): Maintenant une chanson de Monsieur Aznavour, mais...oh, quel accent! Mais...en...en...anglais. Oh brother!

This time, this time, this time there's no time to waste
We know the time we have cannot be replaced
This time, this time, this time let's not hesitate
We know our time is brief and it cannot wait

There is a time for hope and beginning
A time to lose, a time to fall winning
A time to waste on lazy vacations
And time for haste and beautiful temptations

This time, this time, this time there's no time to waste
We know the time we have cannot be replaced
This time, this time, this time let's not hesitate
We know our time is brief and it cannot wait

There is a time for autumn and sadness
A time for youth and love's happy madness
A time for truth and being together
To go for walks in sunny April weather

There is a time for spring and for sighing
A time to laugh, a time to fall crying
A time for dreams and for sweet temptations
But then it seems that life's one vacation

This time, this time, this time there's no time to waste
We know the time we have cannot be replaced
This time, this time, this time let's not hesitate
We know the time we have cannot be replaced

This time, this time, this time there's no time to waste
We fade away as fast as the morning mist
This time, this time, this time let's not hesitate
Don't take my life, my love, my eager kiss for time
Goes on and on and on
