lyrics/music: Edie Daponte

Sliver of Time

When he played his guitar In that smoky old bar
I got stars in my eyes
He was just a young boy But a man in disguise

And he sang about the blues, Like an broken old soul
We drank too much booze
And Broke all the rules In the Firehall Bar

I remember his words that he sang about life
I was just a young girl Working the bar
Learning how to survive

It’s a sliver of time On a wide open road
And the journey is long The tires get worn
And there’s no goin home
He sang like an angel, Til the day that he died
And the last words I heard From his cute crooked smile
Was a ‘Sliver of Time’

He said girl don’t you worry, bout what you should do
He said use what you got
Give from the heart Cause you reap what you sow

It’s a sliver of time On a wide open road
And the journey is long The tires get worn
And there’s no goin home
