Brian's Song (The Hands of Time)Words & Music by Alan & Marilyn Bergman & Michel Legrand
Recorded by Michel Legrand, 1972
D DM7 G A7 If the hands of time D DM7 G A7 Were hands that I could hold, D DM7 Bm Bm7 I'd keep them warm and in my hands C GM7 Em7 A7 They'd not turn cold. D DM7 G A7 Hand in hand we'd choose D DM7 Bm6 The moments that should last, F#m F#m7 Bm Bm7 The lovely moments that should have E7sus E A No future and no past. Bridge: Am7 A The summer from the top of a swing, Am7 Em7 The comfort in the sound of a lullaby, C E+7 The innocence of leaves in the spring, Em7 A6 G Em7 A7 But most of all the moment when love first touched me. D DM7 G A7 All the happy days D DM7 Am7 D7 Would never learn to fly GM7 D Bm7 Until the hands of time would choose Em7 A7 D To wave "Good-bye."
