Pete Philly & Perquisite- Time Flies

Pete Philly & Perquisite- Time Flies

Every once in a while, after having a good, peaceful day, I find myself listening to this tune. It makes me think about where I come from and where I’m at right now, and how grateful I am for everything I have. I thought it was time I shared it with y’all.

can’t believe how much I’ve grown”]
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
can’t believe how much I’ve grown
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t you noticed how time flies..” icon=5 activeicon=6]

It only seems like It’s today
when I walked in the park
with my boys and I was smokin’ all of that weed.
Rollin’ papers and a few blunts,
and the sunshine was all we need.
We used to skate, irritate older davers
I swear yo they hated me.
A good day, wasn’t a good day
unless I’d land a trick and they’d see it.
Today I reminisce and say,
it was all just fun and games.
We used to play then back in the day,
and now I realize that before the day
I’m old and grey.
I gotta make each day count
’cause the amount of the hours is slippin’ away.

Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
can’t believe how much I’ve grown
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t y’all noticed how time flies..

I know you’ve send me some e-mails
and call me about this ‘nd times
and I haven’t been callin’ you back.
But nowadays yo my life kinda crazy,
the tours and then I’m back.
I know you had some ups and some downs,
tell me where you’ve been livin’ at.
I hope that all you’re ambitions and you’re dreams
and you’re hopes are still in tact.
yo just let me know when you wanna walk too my door,
so we can chat and relax just some facts,
drinkin’ sixpacks after that’s… Oh
I forgot you don’t do that no more,
I wish time was a little more slow.
But it’s not, just come to my spot
let the memories flow..

Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
can’t believe how much I’ve grown
Haven’t you noticed how time flies,
man sometimes I feel old
Haven’t y’all noticed how time flies…

I used to be oblivious to the speed of life.
Just ridiculous, I grow wise at the years flow by.
Now I know that life goes faster when you focus on your future and forget about your past.
I need to sent some love out to all my friends.
We need to hook up, cause you never know when the story ends.
As the path bends, live seem to get segregated.
I won’t ever let my future and past get separated.

Pete Philly and Perquisite were a Dutch MC and composer/producer duo that released their first project together in 2004. Perquisite has more of a jazz background and Pete Philly has a funky one, so this is one hell of a music combination. Their sound is a jazzy kind of hip hop with a lot of beautiful melodies.

Their first project was the Mindstate EP, which turned out to be such a success that they decided to expand it into a full album. In early 2007, they released ‘Remindstate’, a completely remixed version of their first album. Then, in late 2007, they released their last project together called ‘Mystery Repeats’, which includes this track. Enjoy!
