Speak softly, don't wake the baby
Come and hold me once more
Before I have to go
There's a lot of work out there
Everything will be fine
And I'll send for you baby
In just a matter of time

Our lives, the only things we know
Come and tell me once more
Before you have to go
There's a better world out there
Though it don't seem right
Will it be like I hope
In just a matter of time

And I hope it's all it seems
Not another empty dream
There's a place for you and me
In a time living happily

Walk quietly, don't make a sound
Believe in what you're doing
I know we can't be wrong
Don't worry about a thing
It will be all right
And we'll all be together
In just a matter of time
And we'll all be together
In just a matter of time
Matter of time
Matter of time
