​Time Lament

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album Daughter of Time (1970).

The tale grows longer every year
To talk, to walk among last year's ghosts
The faceless faces
Oh the lines that tell of sweet bitter places

Mists of the past drift before my mind
To grasp but lose at the sun's first ray
Fleeting moments
Oh the dreams that tell of sweet bitter places

Sand of time veil across my eyes
Today is yestermorrow-never
Words of the past
Fill the mouth to bend your ear forever
