Peter Gabriel – Playing For Time Lyrics

Lyrics Playing For Time (Dark-Side Mix) – Peter Gabriel

Far, far away
Out amongst the stars
There’s a planet spinning slowly
We call it ours
Any time, any day
Any moment that we bring to life
Will never fade away

Oh, oh the moments come and go
While the memories ebb and flow
Play again, play again
Oh, there’s a hill that we must climb
Climb toward the mist of time
It’s all in here what we’ve been through

Down, I’m getting it down
Sorting it out
So everything I care about
Is held in here
All of those I love inside
Everybody’s playing for time
You and I still playing for time

There goes the sun
Back from where it came
The young move to the center
The mom and dad, the frame
Any space, any time
Any moment that we bring to life
Ridiculous, sublime

Oh, oh the moments come and go
While the memories ebb and flow
Play again, play again
Oh, there’s a hill that we must climb
Climb toward these mists of time
It’s all in here what we’ve been through

Down, getting it down
Sorting it out
So everything I care about
Is held in here
All of those I love inside

Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-ooh..

The future shines a sunny day
Unpacked memories stored away
All the while, the clock keeps ticking
You and I still playing for time

One by one the voices silenced
For they know that time will tell
It’s time that wears the crown
And time that rings the bell

All cards on the table
All hands are down
Everybody’s playing for time
Everyone’s still playing for time

Looking for a flicker in the face of the clock
Hidden in the mountain, in the body of the rock
No one seems to notice or to feel the aftershock

They’re all too busy playing for time
Everybody’s playing for time
You and I still playing for time…
