Time Was
Wishbone Ash Lyrics


I've got to rearrange my life,
I've got to rearrange my world.
I miss you, I need you.

I've got to keep my memories aside,
I've got to try to live again.

Time was when there were things around
To be afraid of.
I've got cause, I've even changed my mind
To turn the tables.

Time was when there was no need to stop
And rearrange it.
Now I've got a memory
And I don't want to change it.

And there's a time for waking up
And feeling down,
It's when you have to pick your feet
Up from the ground.

Time was when I had you around -
I was a strong man.
I need you to help make the change
And be a new man.

Takes more than a day and a night
For giving.
It's not so easy just to change your way
Of living.

Time was when there were things around
To bother me.
The crime was, I couldn't start
To change my history.

Primera Calle de la Soledad

I've got to rearrange my life,
I've got to rearrange my world.
I miss you, I need you.

I've got to keep my memories aside,
I've got to try to live again.

Time was, when there were things around,
to be afraid of.
I’d die ‘cause I couldn’t change my mind
and turn the tables.

Time was, when there was no need to stop
and rearrange it.
Now I've got a memory.
And I don't want to change it.

And there's a time for waking up,
and feeling down.
That’s when you have to pick your feet
up from the ground.

Time was, when I had you around,
I was a strong man.
I need you, to help me make the change
and be a new man.

It takes more than a day and a night for giving.
It's not so easy, to just change your way of living.

Time was, when there were things around,
that bothered me.
The crime was, I couldn't start
to change my history.

Album of the year in '72 and still sounded great this morning but I really MUST stop playing Air Guitar ..I'm 65 and it's undignified and scaring the dogs !

Ach, laddie, not to worry. Man's best friend has long grown used to our inexplicable behaviors. As a guy your age who loved Wishbone Ash as a much younger man and then went on to play all manner of guitars in all manner of bands for 40 years, I can truthfully say that there ain't nothing wrong with a little air guitar. I liken it to the "sympathetic kicks" I can't help but give when I watch my kids & grandkids play what Americans call soccer. Whether you've ever played an instrument or not, feeling what the players feel is what it's all about.

LOL! My hound freaks out when I do as well.

I'll give the edge to Vol.4 but this one is very close.

True Duncan.
I just wished I had learned Air Organ :)

I'm listening to this for the first time in over 40 years. A tribute to an old friend that I lost yesterday. We had a special memory we shared with Argus on the turntable. RIP Hoz.
