Borrowed Time

You kept on walkin'
To he edge of the abyss
You looked into the eyes of fate
And begged for one last kiss

It seemed like self destruction
Was your only friend
When the band stopped playin'
And it all came to an end

You went from the tragic to the sublime
Spending borrowed time, spending borrowed time
No more mountains left to climb
Spending borrowed time

I tried to help you but you put me in my place
Pain was the only thing you could ever embrace
I am just a witness to your rise and fall
But I cannot judge you, it's too close to call

Being lonely is not a crime
Spending borrowed, spending borrowed time
No more mountains left to climb
Spending borrowed time

What did they do
How did they kill your soul?
I wish I could have been there
Before you lost control

And now I'll say goodbye
But I won't give up hope
Maybe in another life
You'll be able to cope

As I leave these flowers
Beside your earthly home
I hope you get some comfort
From this little poem

I'll always remember you in your prime
Spending borrowed, spending borrowed time
No more mountains left to climb
Spending borrowed time

Written and produced by Richard Scotti

An amazing songwriter!!!

Only the best music here
Great song, great sound. A very sincere song, often upbeat folk-rock can sound cliche, but...this is a sincere, heartfelt song! A must listen.

I don't often find myself at a loss for words folks, but I tell ya, there comes a come when ya really just have to sit back, listen, enjoy and appreciate a great song in every, and I mean every respect from beginning to end. The lyrics - wonderful songwriter!!! The music - production and arrangement - what could possibly be better!!! The vocals - awesome!!! The feeling - deep!!! And the message - heavy!!! This was the time, and this my friends, THIS was the song. The combination of Richard's poignant, moving and aching lyrics and superb music and Nick's dusty Dylan/Diamond-like vocals kept me spellbound here in the old cabin. I could go on and on about this great song, but I would just be repeating myself. "Borrowed Time" - another great song by a music visionary and craftsman. Much respect to you Richard and to vocalist Nick ... welcome to Legendary Music.

we all live on borrowed tImE, great lyrical content which evokes so much truth and hope, tImE we have is limited.,some more then others, use your time wisely, tImE
