Lyrics

THE ONLY TIME THAT MATTERS
By Dana Lyons

As the sun shines off the water
And the sandhill cranes are dancing in the field
It’s high summer here in Homer
And the rasberries are giving a high yield

And I want to stay forever
Where God’s garden still provides
And the changing time’s the only time that matters
In the vast Alaskan countryside

And we’re driving out the east end
In a car with crooked headlights after dark
There are three moose in the roadway
And the little one is bigger than the car

And I want to stay forever
Where God’s garden still runs wild
And the changing time’s the only time that matters
In the vast Alaskan countryside

As the boat pulls from the harbor
To go fishing halibut at Barren Isles
He says “Welcome to my office”
And Captain Mike sits at the wheel and smiles

And the bar is full of tourists
Taking pictures of reluctant fishermen
They all come from where I came from
And we’re living life large for one weekend

Now the days are getting shorter
And the northern lights are winding through the sky
Soon I’m leaving for the city
For some reason though I can’t remember why
