In Time 

As the sun is scarce
And light is rare
As the sky is dull
And the leaves fall

As the earth is full
And time stands still
As a man is happy
And another is sad

As the ocean is lonely
And water runs dry
As I think closely
And time passes by 

As the wind blows
And the train speeds fast
As your heart is racing
And I let you in 

As now is golden
And sadness is forgotten
As I hold you closely
And let this be
