Time in a Bottle

Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then again
I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you are the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
and dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
except for the memory of how they were answered by you.
