Life's A Twitch! Celebrating 15 years.


A Matter Of Time

original lyrics performed by Elvis Presley

Here I stand in the midst of greatness...

Debbie Christof -- Toronto TSFC Chapter President (2001 - 2003); Dr. Paul Sandor -- Director of the TWH Tourette Clinic; Dr. Mort Doran -- Father of TS in Canada; Dr. Oliver Sacks -- A champion to the TS cause through his writings; Linda Hallett -- Past President of the Toronto TSFC Chapter; Dr. Peter Ramshaw -- nationally recognized for his outstanding clinical care of individuals with TS.

People like these, my friends, are why it is only A Matter of Time...

All people will know of TS
…real soon.
No more bias, or reactions, ridicule, or pain.
Since we can see
a much better life,
for those with TS
who live in strife.
Oh it's time,
only time,
Oh it's only just a matter of time.
Of time…

Look what we've done working together
…so far.
We've taken by storm
laboratories, and the World-Wide Web.
TS is tuned
on our TV's
in books, plays, novels
and in the movies.
Oh it's time,
only time,
Oh it's only just a matter of time!

Don't give up hope now.
We're getting so near!
When I walk out my door
And tic without fear.
As long as we've got people like you, you, and you.
We will succeed in all we do!


Even our schools look quite different
…these days.
Filling the halls are more advocates,
more support that wasn't there

Good times lie ahead!
Congratulations to all (yeeeaaah)!

And since we can film
Since we can train
Since we research
Since we explain

Since we can see
Where TS will be
…so soon (ohhhhH)
In Time!

It's a matter of time.
Oh just some time.
