Matter of time
Lyrics
Matter of time
© 2012 Bruce Mills (SOCAN BMI)

It's only a matter of time
Before the well on the hill runs dry
I hope there's gonna be some rain
One of these days

It's only a matter of time
Before the season to grow is gone
The summer seeds
All blowing in the field

It's only a matter of time
Before the birds in the trees fly away
The apples are
All falling on the ground

The river's running low
And the cattle are moving slow
It's only a matter of time
Everyone knows

Chorus
Suffer the hungry - let them die alone
All the holy people - let them cry and mourn
No grain for the harvest - no bread for the child
The end of days is come

Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down

I'm going to need a little time
Because the well on the hill's gone dry
I'm going to have to get some water
From the river

And if the river's running low
Then there's no place left to go
I hope there's gonna be
Some rain coming soon

Chorus
Suffer the hungry - let them die alone
All the holy people - let them cry and mourn
There's no grain for the harvest - and there's no bread for the child
The end of days is come

(3) Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down
Let the rain fall down

It's only a matter of time
Before the fire in the sun is gone
The world is getting darker every day
Something's gotta change real soon
I said, something's gotta change real soon
It's only a matter of time
A matter of time
