Time Waits for No One

This song is by Mavis Staples and appears on the album Time Waits For No One (1989).

You came to me
Said give you more time
Time to get yourself together
Time to make up your mind
I want forever love
You want a one night fantasy
While I'm sittin' here waitin' on you
You know somebody somewhere's waitin' on me

Time waits for no one
Time don't wait for nobody, nobody
And time waits for no one
If you wait too long
You can turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time)
I just can't sit around
Watchin' my life pass me by
So if you're ever gonna make a change
Better be right now, right now, right now!

I don't know if anybody ever told you, boy
But impatience is my middle name (My middle name)
So if my good, good? good lovin' means anything to you, babe
You better stop runnin' your game

Time waits for no one (No one)
Time don't wait for nobody, nobody
Time waits for no one (No one)
If you wait too long
You turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

You came to me
You said give you more time
But baby, baby, I could see through you
Even if I were deaf, dumb and blind

Time waits for no one (No one)
Time don't wait for nobody, nobody
(Time) Time waits for no one
So if you wait too long (Too long)
You turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time) Waits for no one
Don't wait for no one
Nobody, nobody
No, nobody

Time waits for no one
Time don't wait for nobody, nobody
Time, time, time waits for no one
