ABOUT TIME

So you come up behind me while I'm skipping stones 'cross a stream.
And everything's quiet, it's like we're alone in a dream.
And your hand comes lightly to my shoulder,
A sudden year passes, your voice sounds older.
"I think I love you now," you say, your face behind mine.
And I can only say, "It's about time."

But I don't turn around, I just skip one more stone where it's wide,
And it skips seven times till it touches on the other side.
And you wait for me to hold you
But think how many times I told you
That I loved you then, for all those years behind.
And you think you can pick the place and time.

And I may stand too long, I'm considering quite a few years.
For when I turn to you your face is washed young by your tears.
And I kiss the eyes that flow there
And I kiss the mouth below there
And I say, "Guess I knew you would be mine."
And you say, "Yes", and it was about time.

lyrics

Am          F  Am Dm  C  Dm    Am  F   Am   Dm      C     Dm Am
So you come up behind me while I'm skipping stones 'cross a stream.

Am  F    Am      Dm C   Dm   Am   F     Am    C  Dm Am
And everything's quiet, it's like we're alone in a dream.

Dm                  G             Am
And your hand comes lightly to my shoulder,

Dm                    G                 Am
A sudden year passes, your voice sounds older.

   Dm               G                   Em
"I think I love you now," you say, your face behind mine.

    F          Em          G    Dm      G  C  Em  Am
And I can only say, "It's about time."
