Time in a Bottle
Jim Croce Lyrics


If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til 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'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

Hey there,
That is a beautiful gift you’re giving him!!!
💟💟💟
Parents and grandparents just want time together, with those they love, as that is more precious than silver and gold.
You both will cherish these memories.
If I may make a suggestion, if you don’t already do it, please record (audio, better if by video, so you can see and hear him long after he’s gone) EVERY conversation y’all have together!!!
Our loved ones are only here for a short while, though through salvation, we’ll be with them again… Praise be to God for that!!!

Anyway, thank you for sharing.
Take care, and God bless.
✝️💟🛐

He wrote this when he found out his wife was pregnant.. he wrote it for his soon to be son... He died when his son was only 13 months old.. scary thing is the song is about not having enough time with his son... Gives one chills

Samantha Sanders

I think the person asking why is it scary was asking why is him writing the song about the situation that then happened before it happened... had in mind that maybe Jim knew that he wasnt goin to be able to spend that time with his son so he wrote the song so the person asking why is is scary it's not a scary thing it's a sad thing. But I'm sure the person asking the question also understands that Jim must have been afraid and that the thought of not being able to spend life with his kid was a scary thing

Reverand

Tomorrow is a mystery

That is why it is called present"

Such a repetitive statement.
