Time in a Bottle

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save everyday ’til eternity passes away
Just to spend it with you

And if I could make days last forever
And if words could make wishes come true
We’d walk through the fields of ripening corn
And time would flow through us and you
And I’d save everyday like a treasure and then
Again and again I’d spend them with you

And I’ve looked around enough to know
You’re the one I wanna go through time with (ooh-ooh)
Through time with (ooh-ooh)
Through time with

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

So if only I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save everyday ’til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

And I’d save everyday like a treasure and then
Again and again I’d spend them with you (spend them with you)I’ve looked around enough to know
You’re the one I wanna go through time with (ooh-ooh)
Through time with (ooh-ooh)
Through time with

It is said that Jim Croce wrote this masterpiece around 1970 when his wife told him that she was pregnant, but it wasn’t released until 1972. After Croce was killed in a plane crash in 1973, the song eventually went to #1 in early 1974.

This song is the inspiration for the title of this site, Tunes in a Bottle. For me, there are those special tunes that somehow trap us in a particular time from our past. Whenever we hear those songs, we can be whisked back in time with a flood of memories, good or bad or happy or sad.

I'm a husband, dad, and grandpa. My family, faith, music, and the outdoors are things that I value the most. I also have an uncanny knowledge of yesterday's music that takes up a significant portion of my brain. This site allows me a bit of creativity to share some that knowledge and memories.
