the first time. the second time. let's stop this clock from starting. wrong, the time's spelled wrong. why won't you ever start? why won't you? time ticking spell it right. understand. it's 1974, '73, '72. cape tight fit on from here out. "kiss and ride." "twist and shout." "lights out."

    General Commentman, this song is just so good it doesn't even need a meaning. if you look, a lot of their songs say things about time. just noticing, not that it even matters what it means to everyone but ourselves.

    General Commentit's going to sound crazy, but i think this song is talking about how you want to go back in time and get a feeling back.

    General Commentyeah this is missing some words though.

    understand. it's 1974, you can walk around a lot. i'll see you on the sea side. it's 1912. i'm a conscrpit you can only dig so much. it's 1948. i got suburban eyes.
