Story Behind the Song

Listened to an earlier version of this song and asked Janet if she'd mind if I did a more Jazz, BS&T version. This is the result.

Sweet sounding record. Love the intro, and your arrangement is swinging.

    - TSW - The Song Writers

Very nice tempo changes and very effective breaks. Very diverse musical theme line. Nice effect on the lead guitar; made it stand out without being overdone during the lead breaks. Voice quality and mix was good for this style of music.

    - Norb Studelska/Upper Air Disturbance


Lyrics by: Janet Steely
Music by: Bill Dake (ASCAP)

Life is short, gotta make it count
Ain't got time to ride this fast train
Goin' back to simpler times
Gonna find my peace again
This Time, This Time

Tired of rushin', gettin' nowhere
Gotta slow down and make memory or two
Sip my coffee on the back porch swing
And watch the flowers bloom
This Time, This Time

Don't miss the noise of the city streets
Or those crowded, smoggy freeway miles
Unappreciated loyalties
Lord I know you've got more than that for me
This Time, This Time

Gonna lay in the shade of that old oak tree
And pray the hours away
Ask the Lord for some inspiration
And strength for this new day
No more hurried conversations
Gonna watch my babies sleep
Make the choice to spend my time
On those who mean the most to me
This Time, This Time, This Time, This Time

Good Lord's given me one more chance
To help my children learn to dance
Play in the mud and swim in the creek
Show 'em where to find the peace they seek
This Time, This Time
