Time è la quarta traccia del Lato A del leggendario album The Dark Side Of The Moon, il capolavoro dei Pink Floyd datato 1973. La canzone, l’unica dell’album alla cui stesura hanno collaborato tutti e quattro i membri del gruppo, riguarda come da titolo il tempo, riflettendo sul fatto che sembri passare sempre più velocemente man mano che si invecchia.
Curiosamente, tutti gli orologi che si sentono all’inizio di Time, accompagnati dai rulli di batteria di Nick Mason, furono registrati uno ad uno in un negozio di antiquariato.
Come da copione, anche l’assolo di chitarra di Time ha fatto scuola, considerato uno dei più belli di tutti i tempi.

Verse
F#min                                   Amj     Riff A
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Emj                                        F#min RiffB
Fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
F#min                                       Amj    Riff C
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown
Emj                                              F#min
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Chorus
Dmj7                           Amj7
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
Dmj7                               Amj7
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
Dmj7                      C#min
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
Bmin                        G F# E
No one told you when to run,      you missed the starting gun.

Verse 2
F#min                                                    Amj  Riff E
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Emj                                 F#min Riff B
Racing around to come up behind you again.
F#min                                            Amj  Riff D
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Emj                                     F#min
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Dmj7                          Amj7
Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Dm7                                 Amj7
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Dm7                       C#min
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
Bmin
The time is gone, the song is over,
Bmin7                 Fmj
Thought I'd something more to say.

Chorus

Far away across the field
Bmin7
The tolling of the iron bell
Fmj7
Calls the faithful to their knees
G                  D7#9   D7b9  Bm
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

Bm leads into Great Gig in the Sky
