...For All The Seasons Of Your Mind

There Are Times

Janis Ian

There are times I wish I
could be a little bit stronger
There are times I wish the night
would be a little bit longer, longer
I used to think I could carry the load
Now it seems so many years ago
My time, your time
Time of the mind, mind time,
You can have it

There are days when I'm amazed
that I'm still standing
Keeping my place, I fight through the haze
only by gambling, gambling
When I was younger I thought I was strong
Now I'm still younger but I have not long
My time, your time
Time of the mind
You can have it

There are times, moments when I
didn't really feel like crying
There've been times I knew that I
would do better by sighing
Dying
Sometimes I think it's easy to fall
and then I remember, kid you gotta be tall
My time, your time
You can have it, cause I can't take it

There are times I wish that I
could be a little bit stronger
There are times I wish the night
could be a little bit longer, longer
Sometimes I know it's easy to fall
and then I remember I've gotta be tall
My time, your time
Time of the mind
You can have it cause I don't want it
If you want it you can have it
I can't take it, I'm falling, I'm calling
Please, please, help me
Please help me
