Franks, Michael - Time Together Lyrics

Flora, though you sleep on our guru's lap now
All we see everywhere is you
As we recall our time together

Lucky is how we felt the day we found you
And we were such a happy three
O how we loved our time together

Why must the present
Turn to past so fast?
The disappearing now
I wish I had a golden bough
To bring you back somehow

Someday when all our hearts are reassembled
Love will connect us once again
And we'll resume our time together

    .. so i found the name.. Michael Franks.. how strange that this cover comes first.. the path (oh! it's a river) and the petals.. i used to listen much to him.. (ps. playlist puts my adds in reverse.. any addition comes after, not on top.. )

  4. Gemma Comendador

    I love his songs since the 70s❤️❤️❤️🎻🎺🎧🎷

  5. Meidach Nate

    Michael Franks helped me emotionally navigate my break-up. I learned things about myself through his light-hearted yet ironically deep songs. Mostly, not to take myself and the overall situation too seriously.

    I'd Rather Be Happy Than Right in particular was *certainly* one that made me pause, reflect and laugh at myself. I could've used a lesson like that earlier but who knows if I'd have truly listened then. For lack of a better way of putting it, sometimes a thick head gotta be softened first before the message can truly set in I guess lol

    Thanks, Michael!

  6. Walt Terry

    Long since having retired from major label recording budgets, Our Hero still delivers the goods in high style.

  7. Robert MacMoneagle

    Only discovering this man now in October 2019.

    Charles Taylor

    Welcome, great music you got some catching up to do with him, so many great tunes, enjoy.

  8. Troy Müller

    great philosopher and musician

  9. musicmugger666

    This man always makes you feel he is talking about his life. Many years later, and he is still at the top of his game, I was sorting out some early tracks to feature in my programme the other day, and I was listening to the albums Tiger in the Rain, and The Camera Never Lies, and listening to this, it could be a follow on. A class act, there is no doubt.

    Ever since Michael Franks started in 1973 I have been listening to his wonderful music. It is like a gentle summer rain enveloping you in this, especially nowadays, insane waves of very unmusical music that the ether spreads around. Thanks for uploading, now I can easily listen while working at my pc.
