Where Does The Time Go? by The Innocence Mission


Every now and then, I like to share some music on My Lyme Symphony because it's such a big part of my life. And I also share it because I think adding some heartfelt musical expression to this Lyme journey is absolutely necessary.

The Innocence Mission has become one of my most favorite bands in the last few years. Their unique alternative and ambient folk rock melodies deeply touch my heart. They capture both the profound and simple moments of life through their beautiful poetic lyrics and musicianship. Their songs are intimate, moving, inspirational, and thought-provoking. And they're often metaphorical, containing a deeper message beyond what one first hears. They sing about things we can all relate to; things like grief, joy, nature, love, faith, loss, friendship and life in general. That's one thing I really love about their music. The band primarily centers around husband and wife singer/songwriters, Don and Karen Peris. Although he isn't in this video, Mike Bitts is also a member. Birds of My Neighborhood, My Room In The TreesBefriended and Christ Is My Hope are my favorite IM albums.

Sometimes, when I'm in need of some personal TLC, I'll fix myself a hot cuppa Jasmine green tea and put on some music by The Innocence Mission. It's very soothing. Just does something for my heart. So with that thought in mind, I hope you'll enjoy this acoustic version of "Where Does The Time Go?"

Blessings.

Where Does The Time Go?

We will walk on a hill
Red hats and blue coats, and everything still.
Snow will cover until
We can't tell the sky from the ground.
Where are the buildings, the old wounds of mine?
Did I ever once cry?

(Chorus)
Waiting for you to arrive.
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?

Friends have moved away.
One tree has come down, another one flowers and sways.
Miri was lost for five days.
From upstate at school one friend writes,
Everything is changing while the day sky stays blue.
Changing around him, and me without you.

(Chorus)

Balconies and flights
Of wooden stairs down to the water at low tide.
I'll carry you and we will walk in the light.

(Chorus)
Waiting for you to arrive.
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?

[Karen Peris]
