Time in a Bottle

Song Lyric Sunday

Jim Croce was one of my favorite singer/songwriters in the seventies, and time is one of my favorite topics. It’s fitting that my first Song lyric Sunday post is about saving time as I sit here on my bed, covered in blankets, listening to the rain melt the snow that rarely falls here.

Let’s make the most of the time we have.

“Time In A Bottle”Β Β  By 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 youIf 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’re 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

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’re the one I want to go through time with.

I’m not sure why the video isn’t showing up, but here’s the link to the song:

  1. I was given a wish jar to fill with messages and wishes. It helps keeping all the sentiments in one safe place to revisit every now and then. Just like if we can keep the good time in a bottle.

    • That is an excellent idea! I started a bottle with evidence of God’s work in my life, but I haven’t kept up with it. I think I’ll put it in a more prominent place and open it up to include more general messages and wishes. Thanks f or the tip!

  2. this is a beautiful
    song, JoAnna!
    sad his talent
    was gone so soon,
    though this song
    lives on.

  3. I feel these words.
    ❀ aloha!
    Always nice to visit "anything is possible."
    'Time in a bottle' is as good as time travel. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing.

  4. This will be such a good way to revisit memories as well as the desires of the future… I am liking the idea very much πŸ™‚
