Time
1993 by L. Hernandez


Little Jeannie's strung-out with a needle in both arms
Little Jeannie, what happened to your innocence and charm?
So young and yet, so old
And time ain't being very kind
When she was younger, time was on her side

Little Tommy just ain't looking little anymore
Lives rehab-to-rehab - got his cocaine, but no home
Tommy lost his job
He lost his kids, he lost his wife
When he was younger, time was on his side

Is time on your side?

Little Vera's three years old, ain't growing up just yet
Always sees her daddy smoking up his crystal meth
So young, it's just not right
And life ain't being very kind
But, she's still young and time is on her side
