All the Time in the World

By Betsy Rose


Lyrics


There are those who try to set fire to the world
We are in danger
There is only time to move slowly
There is no time not to love

But we’ve got all the time in the world
All the time in the world
We may be going to hell in a handbasket
Or right on the edge of something fantastic
Since we don’t know what time it is
We’ve got all the time in the world
Grass can only grow so fast
Clouds have to wait on the wind
Dark cocoons will only burst
When the butterfly grows its wings
Hearts and minds need time
For their wisdom to unfurl
For the wings of inspiration to carry us
Into a brand new world

We’ve got all the time in the world
All the time in the world
We may be going to hell in a handbasket
Or right on the edge of something fantastic
Since we don’t know what time it is
We’ve got all the time in the world

It may be urgent, it may be too late
We may be right on time
We may be at a point in evolution
Where there’s a quantum shift of heart and mind
It may be a long slow dying
Or a miracle of birth
But whatever time we are living in
We have all the time on earth

We’ve got all the time in the world
All the time in the world
We may be going to hell in a handbasket
Or right on the edge of something fantastic
Since we don’t know what time it is
We’ve got all the time in the world

We’ve got all the time
All the time
We’ve got all the time in the
world……..

Notes


This song is inspired by Joanna Macy’s work with Deep Time. Our planet seems in the throes of a great change; we wonder if we are midwives at a great birth, or holding her lovingly in hospice care. What time are we living in?
