Lyrics

ONLY TIME

I used to know
A man who would wear a red hat
He let me cut his hair too short
He took his coffee white,
His taste ran from gamine to whore
I was somewhere in between

And in the grove
Where sparrow and crow came to meet,
We played it out for the lords
It was the only time
That he looked me straight in the eyes -
I never missed it since

Whatever happened yesterday?
Your reason was empty
And hard to break

Only time, only time
Only time, only time
Will say

I've been around here too long...
I've drank my fill of rye
And paired it with craving your song
It was a wide-spread lie
So put your shirt back on

The was a shot yesterday
It took all my power
To hear you say -

Only time, only time
Only time, only time
Will say

Oh, my dear
I would gladly move stones with you -
Can we go tomorrow morn?
And in our wake
How the clay-covered starlings will rise
Our story will be bought and sold

I never wanted yesterday
It seems that the closer
We move to ourselves
How the harder and faster,
And faster and faster
And harder we play -

Only time, only time
Only time, only time
Only time, only time
Only time, only time
Will say

Only time, only time
Will say
