Words and Music by Jim Croce

True love is perhaps the greatest joy we ever now. We have taken so much solace, inspiration, and enjoyment from Jim Croce's musical essay on the subject, we thought we'd repeat it here. This is one of the inimitable love songs we wish we had written. But even if we couldn't have, we're very glad he did. Denis and Sherisse share the duet.

Lyrics

If I could save time in a bottle,
the first thing that I'd like to do,
Is to save every day 'til eternity passes away,
just to spend them with you.

If I could make days last forever,
and if words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
again, I would spend them with you.

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
And I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with.

If I had a box just for wishes,
and for dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory
of how they were answered by you.

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
And I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with.

If I could save time in a bottle.
