"'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time/And its news is captured for the queen to use/'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time/And its news is captured" These four lines -- that is, the vocals and the music being played by the instrumentalists -- are, for me, among the most perfect several seconds in Pop/Rock music. It's absolutely beautiful and even before I had any understanding of what the lyrics were all about (it does always seem to take a while to decipher the bulk of Jon Anderson's lyrics) it moved me in a way that very little music does or ever has.
That are musicians who have put their creativity to the highest level of skill. In their works, immediately becomes clear what such a high performing arts is. Expression and inimitable style distinguish them. Those who versed in music can distinguish them from hundreds of other musicians.
I actually have sung this song to my daughter at bedtime for a few years. She also likes the Beatles' "Blackbird" and a few other great songs. My prayer is that she'll always be drawn to real music and not this meaningless crap that gets played on commercial radio.
this song meant the world to the person i loved most, it brought him out his mind loss for 8 months years back...now he's gone again so whoever listens to this song please send out good vibes for him...his name is brian.
