In a Matter of No Time*

IN A MATTER OF NO TIME

In a matter of no time
We could mend a wound
With a simple word or two

In a matter of no time
We could right a wrong
With a deed we do

In a matter of no time
We could better what went bad
And end the sorrow that goes with it
In the moment that we have

In a matter of no time
We could feed a man
And he could do the same

In a matter of time
We could unlock freedom
Escape the chains

In a matter of no time
We could better what went bad
And end the sorrow that goes with it
In the moment that we have

In a matter of no time at all
We’ve seen walls come down
And systems fall

Gotta stop thinkin
Like a family of men
Or the walls will rise
As we descend
In a matter of no time
Wouldn’t take any time at all
What stood in our way
Wasn’t all paved
Just like the rain from the sky would fall
In a matter of no time

In a matter of no time
We could find a love
That lasts forever

And with all those tomorrows
There’s no better time
To be together

In a matter of no time
We could better what went bad
And end the sorrow that goes with it
In the moment that we have

In a matter of no time
