Time the Magician
by Clifford T. Ward

A sweet occasion such as this
Another chance to reminisce
And though together we have grown
It's magical how time has flown.

Remember at the outset
A very long while ago?
You were just a schoolgirl
And I was your big hello.

But time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us.

Remember when you first said
That you would love me always
And how you fascinated
Me in so many ways?

But time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us.

A sweet occasion such as this
Another chance to reminisce
And though together we have grown
It's magical how time has flown.

Remember at the outset
A very long while ago?
You were just a schoolgirl
And I was your big hello.

But time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us.

Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
Time, the magician played a few old tricks on us
(Repeat and fade).

Beautiful like so many of his songs. I believe he was singing about his wife. I think they were childhood sweethearts and met at school. He is sadly missed. His songs are like poetry. I hope his wife is comforted by the many wonderful songs he left behind and how loved he was by his fans.

David Atkinson

Just rediscovering CTW. This is one of his masterpieces imo.

I've been a fan of Clifford for more years than I now care to remember! This is a lovely song, sung with his usual melodic voice and mesmerising. I'm glad we have his legacy of beautiful songs to remember him by.

RIP Clifford T Ward, a superstar who, for very odd reasons, never quite received the recognition he thoroughly deserved.

Thanks felinefanll for putting this great track up for us all to enjoy.

My Dad has always been a huge Clifford fan, and always said that one day, no matter how far in the future it is, that he'd be remembered alongside McCartney, Dylan and Elvis. As an eight year old, I didn't understand what he was getting so excited about. Now, I'm a 22 year old boxing and rugby fanatic, but on the music side of things I see now what my old man was talking about. What a great tune, and fantastic lyrics. Even at my relatively young age, these words hit home. Thanks for the upload!

My favourite Clifford T. Ward song. The melancholic music and photo take me right back to when I was the same age as those schoolgirls, a very long time ago. Time the Magician....
