Song Description

Time Will Fly gives one side of a conversation between friends -- words of hope spoken to a person feeling the pain of a loss. The music features soaring melody and harmony on the chorus, reminiscent of the flying of time. The speaker acknowledges how difficult it is to really identify with the pain of the subject, but expresses a kinship in being human and understanding pain. The speaker recognizes the subject trying to be upbeat, but being bound by feelings of loneliness. The chorus introduces the message of hope: time, although it seems to drag at first, can be instrumental in healing the pain. The speaker continues by expressing faith in the subject's ability to be hopeful, optimistic, and press forward, then finishes by reinforcing the songs message.

Story Behind the Song

When a death or other major loss occurs it feels like the pain felt on day one and two is here to stay. It's hard to imagine it will ever fade, but this song gives a message of hope -- that five or ten years down the road, looking back, it is amazing how far away the past can seem.


I've never walked around inside your shoes.
But I know what you're feeling,
And it's deeper than the blues.
I'd be lying if I said I felt your pain.
But I've felt the wind blow cold
And watched the sunshine turn to rain.

I watch a smile play across your face.
But your eyes betray your sadness,
Lonely, gazing into space.
It's hard to see today's a brand new start.
When you've had a piece of yesterday
Torn out of your heart, but

Time will fly, and carry you away
Wash away your pain, and set you free
Sail away, across life's golden sea
The wind will chase the
Shadows from your sky,
And time will fly.

As days go by, the sun will shine again.
And you'll have highs and lows
As you walk from now to then.
I know you'll choose the best that love can buy.
And I know you'll lift your face
And look tomorrow in the eye, 'cause
