Time / The End Of Time (The Chameleons)

Notes by Mark - One of the first songs including 'The End Of Time' I ever wrote on an acoustic guitar, which I'd only recently bought, a Jap Washburn, which I still have. I played it to the others and married the chorus with a progression that Reg had, which changed the key of the chorus and improved the idea. Satisfying for me because I'd moved beyond writing on a bass.

One chance is all you have
When it's gone
All you have is sorrow
One chance is all you have
Take it on
Like there's no tomorrow
Don't waste your time
Don't waste time
Time

Time slipping away
Have to make the most of your time
You don't have time
Time
Open the door
Somewhere in the back of your mind
Child
You don't have time anymore

Unchanged intoxicating youth
Such an endless feeling
Those days
Are softly stolen away
While your head is reeling

Don't waste your time,
You can't waste time
It's time
It's time

Time slipping away
Have to make the most of your time
You don't have time
Time
Open the door
Somewhere in the back of your mind
Child
You don't have time
Any more

Don't waste your days away
And crying all night
Lonely child, lonely child
Hear me

Alternative Lyrics from Marks songbook (Dearest dead days):

One chance is all you have
When it's gone
All you have is sorrow
One chance is all you have
Take it on
Like there's no tomorrow
Don't waste your time
Don't waste time
Time

Time slipping away
Have to make the most of your time
You don't have time
Time
Open the door
Somewhere in the back of your mind
Child
You don't have time any more

Unchanged intoxicating youth
Such an endless feeling
Those days
Are softly stolen away
While your head is reeling

Don't waste your time
You can't waste time
It's time

It's time

Time slipping away
Have to make the most of your time
You don't have time
Time
Open the door
Somewhere in the back of your mind
Child
You don't have time
Any more

Don't waste your days away
And crying all night
Lonely child, lonely child
Hear me
