"Time (Clock of the Heart)" as written by Michael Craig, Roy Hay, Jon Moss and George O'dowd....
Don't put your head on my shoulder
Sink me in a river of tears
This could be the best place yet
But you must overcome your fears

Ooh in time it could have been so much more
The time is precious I know
In time it could have been so much more
The time has nothing to show because
Time won't give me time and
Time makes lovers feel like they've got something real
But you and me we know they've got nothing but time
And time won't give me time, won't give me time (time, time, time)

Don't make me feel any colder
Time is like a clock in my heart
Touch me touch was the key too much
I felt I lost you from the start

Ooh in time it could have been so much more
The time is precious I know
In time it could have been so much more
The time has nothing to show because
Time won't give me time and
Time makes lovers feel like they've got something real
But you and me we know they've got nothing but time
And time won't give me time, won't give me time (time, time, time)
Ooh in time it could have been so much more
The time is precious I know
In time it could have been so much more
The time has nothing to show because
Time won't give me time and
Time makes lovers feel like they've got something real
But you and me we know they've got nothing but time
And you know time won't give me time
And time makes lovers feel like they've got something real
But you and me we know they've got nothing but time
And you know time won't give me time
And time makes lovers feel like they've got something real

    General CommentI think this song is about the drummer of the culture club, who Boy George was in love with, and who loved him too, but was confused because he wasnt gay. I believe the first verse is Boy George telling the drummer not to complain to him about how much he loves him but is confused, because this could be a beautiful relationship if he just overcomes his fears. The rest if the song continues from that theme.
