jackson browne – the times you’ve come lyrics


in the time we’ve known that we each are a part of one another
we’ve lost as much as we have won
and as our lives have grown we have found that it only brings us pain
to hang on to the things that we have done
still i love the times you’ve come

when you went away taking all that i’d built my false road on
i dropped my life and couldn’t find the pieces
now you come and go and it’s hard but i feel my strength returning
we’ll see how far this new road reaches
we’ll see a little more each time we come

now everybody’s gonna tell you it’s not worth it
everybody’s gotta show you their own pain
you might try to find your way up around it
but the need for love will still remain

now we’re lying here so safe in the ruins of our pleasures
laughter marks the place where we have fallen
and our lives are near so it wouldn’t occur to us to wonder
is this the past or the future that is calling
you know i’ve loved these times you’ve come
