Story

The ticking clock theme continues in "It's Time", lyrics for which I wrote years and years ago as a young woman. Having grown up in a chaotic environment as one of ten siblings, "childhood Patty" learned to race the clock above all: race through meals or someone else eats it, race through school assignments or there might not be another quiet moment to grab for hours or days, race from school to your babysitting jobs or you might not earn enough change to buy a new outfit to replace the hand-me-downs. MUCH later, I learned that all I was getting from my racing was anxiety, still prevalent in my life but less in control of me as I've learned to acknowledge its roots. But at the time of writing "It's Time", I was struggling against a sense of sadness and heightened anxiety over relationships, career choices, and a constant shadow of emptiness. So, It's Time is, well, a Time piece, a legitimate observation about Time, Love, Leaving Love, Time Passage, Reclaiming Love, and ultimately Claiming Self and Happiness. Peace - Patty

Lyrics

It's Time To realize where we been Where we are It's Time this Time

It's Now No waiting for tomorrow and sorrow It's Now It's Now

Two kids we been great lovers That I must say

But Lover this Mother Can't live for yesterday 

It's Time I'm leaving for the City It's there It's Time it's Time

 

It's blue The glitter isn't here I was wrong It's blue It's blue

No You I left myself behind There's no Life No Dreams No You

I left to chase the music That seemed far away

But our heartbeats Not drumbeats Were sweeter once to play

It's blue The heart that housed my own isn't here

It's You It's Blue

 

It's Time To pick up all the pieces To begin again It's Time

It's Now How Could I be so wrong We belong together Now

I once lost my direction But this much I know

As long as you need me Again I'll never go

It's Time, My heart has found its home

In your Love In You It's Time

 

This Time It's Time

It's Time, This Time

Time...Time...Time

Baby It's Time
