  • Hold back the time
    Just let it hang
    Stop the seconds minutes and hours
    And if I give you love
    Will you let me keep myself

    I'm sitting out here on the very edge of earth
    Looking through a book from long before the world began
    The man who gave it to me didn't have a name
    As overhead the sun is running down the day

    The book begins its story
    It tells of war and hate it tells of power
    The promises of freedom
    And of all religions love and ways of life

    And how to close your time inside a flower
    Stop the seconds minutes hours
    Close your time inside a flower
    Live your life forget the power

    The people passing by they stop to look at me
    They all think I'm crazy cause I'm laughing in the wind
    But I am free to be whatever I may choose
    To win this freedom I know that somebody had to lose

    I've learned of those who buy love
    Read about those willing to sell it
    When we're born it's for love
    Some of us would die just to get it

    What you gotta do is close your time inside a flower
    Stop the seconds minutes hours
    Close your time inside a flower
    Live your life forget the power

    We can give our love away and never lose ourselves
    But no one can be something that you own
    And if you think you've got the right to tell me what I am
    I got no trouble leaving you alone

    Close your time inside a flower
    Stop the seconds minutes hours
    Close your time inside a flower
    Live your life forget the power
