The Poetry of 8 Words: There'll come a time, don't you forget it

There'll come a time, don't you forget it

All day before my eyes come little visions.
There’s a beautiful land where dreams come true.
And this old world is a new world.
Aren’t many things one can be sure of…
In one moment you’ll know what it is
There'll come a time, don't you forget it.

You might find the night-time the right time
You walk without a sound down forgotten streets
And you see it comin' down the street
In it’s hanging on, and with fingers clutching
Baby, telling you, you've been gone too long.

I've got to follow where it leads me
Here tonight as I stand inside the rain
I'm glad I'm mad and can't live without
Me wanting a little sweetness in my soul

I want to touch your face, your hands
I’ve always loved the simple things about you
Oh touch me now and let me know
If you like it let me know it.

In the dark I get such a thrill
When I kiss you every night and day.
You are my nights; my night and day.
I declare you gonna drive me stone insane

Quiet baby, don’t explain there’s nothing to gain.
Don't talk just hold me closer to you.
I need your affection and not your protection
Keep looking in my eyes we'll be fine
I know it will be so it's time

Lie away resting away deep in my arms
From memory these arms still hold a thrill.
A thrill that should have been gone by
Like that dance before the flame that burns. 

Oh please forget the dreams that were broken
The future that someone says may never be
Tomorrow might not come, when dreamers dream late
But still I hope the time will come.
And when you have some time to spend
Come on back see me when you can

Nina Simone. Love this lady's music. That voice. Wow. And another wow... It's been far too long since I've pulled one of these out. There's old and new coming... definitely more of these. Enjoy. kisses. m.

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Don’t you pay em' no mind
Day and Night
After you've gone 
In the dark
I want a little sugar in my bowl
Love me or leave me
Alone Again (Naturally)
Do What You Gotta Do
I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)
Just Like A Woman
For Myself
Human Touch
Take Care of Business
That's All I Want From You
Why? (The King of Love Is Dead) 
You've Been Gone Too Long 
Brown Baby 
Who Knows Where the Time Goes
Do I Move You 
Everything Must Change 
I Can't See Nobody 
Can't Get Out of This Mood
Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me
I'm Gonna Leave You 
Don't Explain
Gimme Some
Chilly Winds Don't Blow 
Beautiful Land
For a While 
Feeling Good
He Needs Me 

Desperate Ones
