We’re all racing through time, most of us only go in one direction, and none of us want to do it alone.

This tells the love story of Doc Brown and Clara Clayton from Back to the Future III, but if you study the lyrics and know the original movie Back to the Future, you will immediately recognise that this song is also about the friendship between Doc Brown and Marty McFly, and that moment right before they captured lightning to send Marty back to the future. Well, *a* future, but that’s another story.

Full lyrics below the fold.

LYRICS: ‘Back to the Future’ version of ‘Time in a Bottle’, by Tim Ireland

(Sung to ‘Time in a Bottle’ by Jim Croce)

If I could control flux capacity
The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to travel through time
In DeLoreans designed
Not for roads
But for me, and for you

If I could go back to the future
Or maybe exist ’til next week

I’d say every way
I could think of ‘I love you’
If only we had time to speak

But it’s ten o clock
you hear the chimes
It’s here and now
we race through time
as partners

You need to find
that special friend
Who’ll stick around
until the end
for starters

For I’ve got a gigawatt of wishes
Bursting to live and come true

I’d break through dimensions
and risk time collapsing
Just to travel
through more time with you

But it’s ten o clock
you hear the chimes
It’s here and now
we race through time
as partners

You need to find
that special friend
Who’ll stick around
until the end
for starters

File this song under ‘as approved by Mary Steenburgen’. Damn right I’m proud.
