TIME IS A BAD THING TO WASTE

THE SONG IS ABOUT OPPORTUNITY REALIZED TOO LATE. YEARS ARE WASTED ONE MINUTE AT A TIME. A MINUTE ISN'T MUCH, UNTIL YOU WASTE ENOUGH OF THEM, AND REALIZE WHAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE, IF ONLY...... Video on YouTube.

Story behind the song
MY DAD AND I WENT FISHING. MY MOTHER TOOK THE PICTURE I CALL THE "CATCH OF THE DAY" PICTURE. THE CATCH OF THE DAY PICTURE WAS LOST FOR MANY YEARS, UNTIL I FOUND IT. YEARS LATER, IT WAS NOT A PICTURE OF THE FISH AND MY BEARD ANY MORE. IT WAS A LOOK BACK IN TIME, AT A MOMENT WITH MY DAD. THE BEARD, FISH, AND MY DAD, ARE GONE, BUT THE PAPER MEMORY REMAINS. WE DIDN'T KNOW IT THEN, BUT THAT WAS OUR LAST FISHING TRIP. WE KNEW WE'D GO AGAIN, JUST "DIDN'T HAVE TIME," WE SAID. I DON'T KNOW HOW OFTEN WE SAID THAT, IN THE YEARS AFTER THAT PICTURE. MOMENT BY MOMENT, YEAR BY YEAR, IT CAME TRUE. "WE DON'T HAVE TIME." OPPORTUNITY COMES AND GOES WITH TIME. LIFE IS THE GIFT OF TIME. TIME IS A BAD THING TO WASTE IS ABOUT OPPORTUNITY REALIZED TOO LATE. MOMENTS CREATE MEMORIES THAT WILL BE HERE WHEN YOU AND I ARE GONE. DAD GAVE ME HIS TIME, AND CREATED A MEMORY WORTH MORE THAN MONEY. THANKS DAD FOR THE MEMORIES, AND THOSE MOMENTS IN TIME.
Lyrics
TIME IS A BAD THING TO WASTE. THOSE MEMENTS I WASTED ARE GONE. FEARING GOD'S PLAN I DROPPED HIS AND RAN, SEEKING MY WAY ON MY OWN. LIKE A PRODICAL SON I HAD MY FUN, NOT KNOWING WHAT I NOW CAN SEE. I TOOK A FALL WHEN I LOST IT ALL, OH THE TRUTH I NOW SEE. TIME IS A BAD THING TO WASTE, THOSE YEARS THAT I WASTED ARE GONE. TIME IS THE KEY, DON'T WASTE IT YOU SEE, IT WILL NOT COME BACK WHEN ITS GONE. I WISH THAT I HAD MORE TIME WITH MY DAD, THOSE MEMENTS WE HAD ARE ALL GONE. LOVE IS A KEY, DON'T WASTE IT YOU SEE, YOU'LL WAKE UP SOME DAY WITH IT GONE. (short guitar lead) I WISH THAT I HAD, MORE TIME WITH MY DAD, THOSE MEMENTS WE HAD ARE ALL GONE. LOVE IS A KEY, DON'T WASTE IS YOU SEE, YOU'LL WAKE UP SOME DAY WITH IT GONE. TIME IS A BAD THING TO WASTE, THESE MOMENTS DOWN HERE WILL BE GONE. TIME IS THE KEY, DON'T WASTE IT YOU SEE, YOU'LL WAKE UP SOME DAY WITH IT GONE.
