Jim Croce - Time In A Bottle 1972




Jim Croce - Time In A Bottle 1972

James Joseph Croce,(January 10, 1943 -- September 20, 1973),
popularly known as Jim Croce, was a singer-songwriter.
Croce and his song-writer Maury Muehleisen died in a small commercial plane crash on September 20, 1973, one day before his third ABC album, 'I Got a Name' was to be released.
The posthumous release included three hits, "I Got A Name," "Workin' At The Car Wash Blues" and "I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song."
"Time in a bottle" was written for his newborn son, A. J. Croce. The song was part of the album "You Don't Mess Around with
Jim" that reached number 1 in US.

Lyrics:

If I could save time in a bottle
the first thing that I'd like to do
is to save everyday till eternity passes away
just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
if words could make wishes come true
I'd save everyday like a treasure and then
again I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
to do the things you wanna do
once you find them
I looked around enough to know
That you're the one I wanna go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
and dreams that had never come true
the box would be empty except for the memory of how
they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
to do the things you wanna do
once you find them
I looked around enough to know
that your the one I wanna go thru time with..

  1. Jim was one of the greatest songwriter
    there ever was-- brilliant and profound,
    he could capture all those feelings
    that many of the people feels
    and put them in a song with
    haunting melody,
    melancholic yet somehow
    uplifts you everytime you listen.
    Too tragic that he died in his prime-
    what a great loss.
    This is my favorite song.
    I love I Got A Name, too

    I'm a true-blue Croce fan :-)
    Long Live!
