​Time's Caught Up On You

This song is by Gerry Rafferty and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1992) and on the album Life Goes On (2009).

One night, you'll stand again in the spotlight
And everything will be all right
And you'll wake up from this dark night of the soul.

You started out in rock 'n' roll
You had music deep in your soul
Now you don't cut it like you used to do
Looks like time has caught up on you.

You've given up, you've settled down
No more riding on the money-go-round
A quiet life and a room with a view
Looks like time's caught up on you.

Holes in your pockets, holes in your shoes
Holes in your day dreams that never came true
So many years but so little to show
Nobody told you -- you reap what you sow.

The way you talk -- makes me sad
I still remember all the good times we had
Right now you're twisted and bitter and blue
Looks like time's caught up on you.

How many times did I hear you say
Forget tomorrow -- just live for today
You've burned some bridges, yeah -- that much is true
Looks like time's caught up on you.

You've got some demons still driving you on
They wonder where all the good times have gone
Nobody calls you, now nobody dares
Nobody wants to 'cause nobody cares.

Another night, another place
Another limbo where you've fallen from grace
No, you don't cut it like you used to do
Looks like time's caught up on you.

It's caught up on you
It's caught up on you
It's caught up on you
It's caught up on you

One night -- you'll stand again in the spotlight
And everything will be all right
And you'll wake up from this dark night of the soul.

One night -- you'll spread your wings and you'll take flight
And everything will be all right
And you'll wake up from this dark night of the soul.

One night -- you'll stand again in the spotlight
And everything will be all right
And you'll wake up from this dark night of the soul.
