Time Heals, and it will again.

I have always used this particular song from Todd Rundgren going way back to 1981 when I was faced with some very serious life changes and decisions.  It provided itself as a template for my inner strength and for my never ending determination to pull away from those dark corners of my mind that from occasion reared it’s ugly self to me.

If you have never heard the album Healing from Todd Rundgren’s 1981 release in it’s entirety, get it.  I believe the original 1981 release of the CD is out-of-print but has been remastered in 2010.  Spirituality and the human condition is Healing’s theme.

The lyrics are as followed:

If you’re bleeding,
Then everyone can see you’re bleeding
They can call for the doctor,
Who’ll provide what the diagnosis says you’re needing
Then he’ll take away your pain
But if your heart,
Your heart has been broken
And you don’t wear it on your sleeve
No one can tell,
Your hell goes unspoken
But there’s one thing you must believe

Time heals the wounds no one can see
Time heals the wounds that no one can see

If you’re crying
Then everyone can see you crying

And they all sympathize
But it just doesn’t matter
Though they may be trying,
They can’t feel the hurt inside
You can’t go on,
You’ve gone to the limit
And your life seems to slip away
You’re on your own
Alone you must face it
And tomorrow’s so far away

You got to hold on baby
Got to give it time to heal
Time heals the wounds that no one can see
You must believe what they say is true
It do’s wonders for ya, yeah, yeah.
