I love this song! My dad used to sing it to my mom during bonfires growing up. They are still going strong now 41yrs together! Jim Croce was a master at painting with very few words.

Great song
So pretty... ♥
This is such a nice song, melancholy but true. I've looked around enough to know that you're the one I wanna go through time with!
Can you say the ultimate universal theme song.
Bravo. what lyrics...cla s s i c ! ! ! !
Very true Dreamscape! Still makes me think of the Hangover 2 now when I hear this. LOL Great, great tune by a great songwriter! RIP Jim Croce.
All the regrets of life.....
First time I heard this song it sounded very weird. Go figure.
I like how the melody changes from haunting (if I could save time in a bottle) to upbeat (but there never seems to be enough time...). What a nice song with very true lyrics.
Fantastic lyrics from a great storyteller who was taken from us much too soon.
Hangover 2
Jim Croce touches the heart now as he did then.
Another song etched into memory by my teacher, Tracy Armstrong. He taught a love of poetry through song and this became one of my favorites.
wish i had someone to spend time with great song
long time no hear
But there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them...so poignant.
A poet of my generation

What a wonderful, talented poet. He is greatly missed. "But there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them". HOW TRUE!
he was born in nyc too. loved jim croces music a lot and i love it out here in Colorado.
Extraordinar i a cancion...no existe suficiente tiempo, el tiempo y el se tuercen. Bueno, al menos eso pienso...se van por distintos caminos: el de la eternidad (el tiempo ) y el de la fugacidad ( el amor ).

He made a place for us to look into and listen. His music will always be with us.
