How Long Will It Be

(Sparkle Moore)

HOW LONG WILL IT BE before the Tempest of Time

washes over your shore,

HOW LONG WILL IT BE before the Tempest of Time

tells you there is no more;

Be sure approaches the day,

Quite unexpectedly,

It's just a matter of time,

HOW LONG WILL IT BE.

 

HOW LONG WILL IT BE, before the Finger of Life

points and says, "You, you're the one!"

How's it gonna feel to say,

"Behold, these are the works I have done",

One always means to change his ways

with intentions good no doubt,

But all the while, swift and silent,

time keeps running out.

 

Much too quick tomorrow passes

on to yesterday,

And no one thinks his final hour

will ever pass away.

But each new day completes a new page

in our Book of Life,

What do we fill its chapters with,

virtue or vice;

 

HOW LONG WILL IT BE, before we turn

to the next page and read there, "THE END",

At the end of the line, who will we have the right

to call "Friend",

THE TIME TO PLAN THE MENU

IS NOT AFTER THE MEAL IS THROUGH,

HOW LONG WILL IT BE before the

Golden Reaper calls you.
