Who Knows Where The Time Goes?
Fairport Convention Lyrics


Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time
For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter and then
The birds in spring again
I have no fear of time
For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

Across the evening sky
All the birds are leaving
But how can they know 
It's time for them to go?
Before the winter fire 
I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Sad, deserted shore, 
Your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know 
It's time for them to go
But I will still be here
I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

And I am not alone 
While my love is near me
I know it will be so 
Until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter 
And then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

In early 2019, I put several of my mother's favorite albums on an mp3 player for her to enjoy, but I wasn't able to give her the player before her last stroke. So I brought it to her bedside in hospice and put one earbud in her ear and one in mine so we could listen to her music together, like we did when I was young. She wasn't conscious, but her heart rate rose at the start of each new song, so I know some part of her heard.
I grew up to be a professional singer, I got my voice from my mom, and this was her favorite song, so I sang along to it.
I can't convey how much that last moment of beauty meant, but I'll always have Ms. Denny to thank for her part in it.

I'm so sorry for your loss Derek. I chose this song to memorialize a friend who had passed as well. We used to celebrate some holidays together when we both found ourselves alone. We used to listen to Judy Collins version of this song and I thought it a worthy song to remember her. Peace.

Anne Reidy

So Sorry!
