We Should Only Have Time For Love

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album Flatlands (1995).

(Wayland Patton, Jim Rushing)

Today we laid old man Pate to rest
His big hands folded across his chest
God rest his soul, just two days ago
He was in his yard wavin' to me

As I stood by his grave
The impression was strong
One minute we're here
And the next we're gone
And with each breath of life
That is given to us
We should only have time for love

So tell me what can be gained
By fussing and fighting
The answer is left up to us
I think it's time we learned,
Enough is enough
Oh, we should only have time for love

Sometimes I'm unwilling to open my eyes
Just too stubborn to compromise
When you stand your ground
Oh, there's no backin' down
That makes for a long, bitter fight

And you know it's such a waste
To engage in that
Tearing each other down
In a tit for tat
When we could be hard at work,
Building a trust
Oh, we should only have time for love

So tell me what can be gained
By fussing and fighting
The answer is left up to us
I think it's time we learned,
Enough is enough
Oh, we should only have time for love

Well, isn't it time we learned,
Enough is enough
Oh, we should only have time for love...
