Lyrics for Matter of Time by Eddie Vedder:

As we arise with the sun in our eyes
Catch a break from the dark
Still times when nothing's alright
As we bandage up all our parts

Well I’m a builder of bridges
And I could fly us up to the moon
When you're time is limited, nothing happens too soon

Navigate, come find a way
Our differences be damned
So much space between us
In the distance of our hands

Stakes are raised to elevate, just a second to understand
What you give, this will to live

You got the cure, I'll fight the fight
It's just a matter of time

Submit the evidence and take the stand
Let the truth testify
If I were but a grain of sand
I’d still resist this tide

But we're not alone on this crowded shore
And times they do demand
Shrink the space between us
A reaching of a hand

Stakes are raised to elevate, just a second to understand
What you give, this will to live

You got the cure, I got the fight
It's just a matter of time
Matter of time, just a matter of time

I found myself when I found my tribe
Now I know what it's like to feel alive

I’ll take the joy, I'll take the pain
We’re just like you, we're all the same

A matter of time
Matter of time
Matter of time
Join together
Matter of time
Join together
Matter of time
Join together
Matter of time

Song Facts

As part of the virtual fundraising event Venture Into Cures on November 18, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder unveiled two incredibly moving solo songs.

As well as the brand-new Matter Of Time, Ed also unveiled an updated version of Say Hi, which is a song that was originally written for Eli Meyer, “a brave six-year-old afflicted with Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa”.

Both songs were shared in order to raise money and awareness for the rare disease Epidermolysis Bullosa, with the Venture Into Cures event set up by Eddie and his wife Jill.
