about

The sonic choices of the ballad “Only Time Will Tell” give this piece a unique sound. The grand piano has a bit more of a upright sound and the string section has a bowed double bass added. A soprano sax is also on this track and provides a melancholic solo in the instrumental section which also serves as a counterpoint when the vocal returns.

lyrics

Only Time Will Tell

Will your raving hunger
one day for me be stilled
sodden soil, saturated
will our love then fail?

When will I start hovering
and watch you in your sleep?
Seeking, and not slumbering
on the shores of your soul

When will we have spoken
our last words of farewell
I don’t know, I really don’t know
I suppose, only time will tell

When will you turn against me
like wind that blows from the East
no breeze, soft and playfully
but gusts, cold and spitefully

And when will I know
that it’s your very last kiss
passion-drained and absent-mindedly
placed upon my lips

When will we have spoken
our last words of farewell?
I don’t know, I really don’t know
I suppose, only time will tell

When will we have spoken
our last words of farewell?
I don’t know, I really don’t know
I suppose, only time will tell

I don’t know, I really don’t know
I suppose, only time will tell
Only time will tell
