When my time runs out.
(tekst & muziek Peter P. van Oosterum)
A1 When my time runs out, I’ll turn my back to tomorrow And set my mind To the days of long before For when my time is up, I will feel no longer sorrow, And think of you As the one I still adore
A2 When my days have passed, And the spring is long forgotten, When my passion fades, With the last of the autumn sun. Then, when my song will end, Will you still sit beside me, And will you hold my hand, The way we once begun.
B Then I will know we had a meaning, That we made sense throughout our days. I know we just can’t live forever, And that the end will come for us in separate ways.
A3 But when my life grows old, And the sun no longer warms me, When the lights get low, I will slowly turn my head, Then I will surely find That old forgotten feeling, The way you took my heart And went straight on to my head.
Peter P. van Oosterum.
