Lyrics for " I Fall Apart " ???

Postby Jay Jay » 03 Jul 2012, 15:08

Hi Rory Fans & Friends,

I want you to solve this question of the correct lyrics in this song.
It's only the 2nd line in verse 3 of "I Fall Apart" song's great lyrics that I'm questioning ..

On the official homepage it says this ..

I don't mind waiting for your love
" For of time, I've got plenty of "
Rain or shine please bring out your love
Make it shine like the stars above

Roryon site reads like this ..

I don't mind waiting for your love
" Borrowed time, I've got plenty of "
Rain or shine please bring out your love
Make it shine like the stars above

Jay Jay always thought it was so ..

I don't mind waiting for your love
" For all time, I've got plenty of "
Rain or shine please bring out your love
Make it shine like the stars above

I've played it a few times over and over on Rory Gallagher 1st album.. it does seem to sound more like "Borrowed time" Rory sings.

What do you think guys & girls???

On this video in France it sounds like what I thought the lyrics were?.. "For all time" :roll:
Rory unfortunately singing at time when camera is behind him. So can't read his lips :roll:

It's such a pretty song. I listened to the album on iTunes with headphones, and it sounds like he sings "for of time" which makes more sense to me. In the video (he looks so young!) it's hard to tell- he could be saying borrowed time, and he did used to change the lyrics on the spot. On the 'net the consensus of the different websites read "for of time." The site lastoftheindependents.com says "borrowed time." Perhaps someone in the Gallagher family can answer that if they happen to know? Rory probably wrote them down somewhere when he recorded it. But if it's a vote, I think he says "for of time."

In my Chrysalis licenced 1977 song book it also says "For of time".

Barry (Sinnerboy) Barnes I believe sings "borrowed time". Not too clear with Sinnerboy vids but listen to this acoustic version here

how about that part from a million miles away where he sings

right now the blues wants to surround me...

or is it

right now the blues flock to surround me...


on different sites i saw both version and i wonder which one is correct. i put the first one on the back of my rory bbc session t shirt (milka saw it).
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

There is no question about that. The question here is with "I Fall Apart" is what does Rory sing /say on his debut 1st solo RG album?

but also there can be found both versions of AMMA on different lyrics sites. that's confusing.
