lyrics

Well the time on the clock sayin’ you must act now
You won't get to swing anything: no way, no how
And the rise of you-know-who won't do

Time on the clock says you must come too
Or you’ll get discarded like a worn-out shoe
Cast aside on the tow-path
Everybody ends up kicking you (and that won't do)

Don't let me be the only one
The rain decides to fall upon
Staring at the setting sun
As it slips over the horizon
All I needed was more time

Told me one day I would be the future
Told me one day I could touch the sky
Taught me how to live and now I'm learning how to die

Time on the clock draws a line in the sand
You can cross it with impunity when circumstances so demand
You know in your heart of hearts that that won't do (and that’s not you)

And the snow lay light
But I feel my heart still beating
Oh! the past playing some trick inside my mind

Told me one day I would be the future
Told me one day I could touch the sky
Taught me how to live and now I'm learning how to die

The time on the clock draws this chapter to a close
Whose the winner, whose the loser here?
Well no one ever knows
But! You know in your heart of hearts and that's not you (well that won't do)

And the snow lay light on the horizon
I can feel and hear my heart still beating
The past playing some trick inside my mind

Told me one day I would be the future
Told me one day I could touch the sky
Taught me how to live and now I'm learning how to die
