Lyrics

Partner in time

Written By: Craig Knight


There’s a place in mind
Where you and I still breathe together
And untouched by time
Is a picture of you and I
But ill winds have come
As good byes often brew
And ties come undone
As ties often do
And now I’ve only got time
Left to think of you
And you will always be

(chorus)

You will always be
My partner in time
You will always be
My partner in time

I walk alone in this wilderness
Your gentle breeze lays a kiss on my face
And memories come rushing in
Takes me back to that special place
Where you and I were so meant to be
Now all that’s left are memories

And ill winds have come
As good byes often brew
And ties come undone
As ties often do
And now I’ve only got time
Left to think of you
And you will always be

(chorus)

(bridge)

Never thought the day would come
Never dreamed
The time would ever come
Now I’ve only got time
As my companion
And you will always be

(chorus out)

Memories Remain

Written By: Craig Knight

Memories have maimed those who’ve claimed to be sure footed here
Then egos disappear
No one is safe from jagged rocks below
When taking the lover’s plunge

(chorus)
There are
Thin lines
Between love and sanity
And these memories still remain (twice)

These feet are bloody
Where the shards of your heart remain
and only time can heal the pain
Reflections of ourselves sometimes
Crack before our eyes
And only God can hear the cries.

(chorus)
There are places
in here
where you’ll always live and breath
and these memories still remain (twice)

These memories still remain (repeat)

Don't Worry

Written By: Craig Knight

If you would only
Let me touch you there
Girl I’ll surely make you mine

And you would see so clear
Exactly why I’m here
Don’t let suspicion make you blind

There’s a place we can go
No one has to know
There our souls can intertwine
Let your fear float on the air
There’s no reason to be scared
All I ask of you is time

(chorus)

Don’t worry
I’ll take care of you
If you would only free your mind
Don’t worry
I’ll take care of you
All I ask of you is time

I know you wanna take things slow
Its probably the way to go
But patience just ain’t my thing
My love it comes like a wave
I’ll be this way to my grave
So baby listen when I say

Chorus
