​Key To The Rhyme

This song is by Lake and appears on the album Lake I (1976) and on the live album Lake Live ... On The Run (1982).

Time you're creeping round my corner
The fate of clock and flow
On your way past my door
Now you stand before an old man
His last words to embrace
Then you'll go on your way

See the people run
Before they stop to think of life
See them run, see them hide
In this lonely life
See the people run
Before they stop to wonder why
See them run, see them hide
See them run, see them hide
In this lonely life

When the day has come you'll find
I hope I'm old and gray
And my life had it's day
Now you've taken all my old friends
Until the end of time
Turn the key to the rhyme

Time you're creeping round my corner
Your sight of cash and flow
Moving on past my door
Now I know some day you'll find me
When I am old and gray
Until then, on your way, hey

See the people run
Before they stop to think of life
See them run, see them hide
In this lonely life
See the people run
Before they stop to ponder why
See them run, see them hide
See them run, see them hide
In this lonely life
