"If I Had More Time" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Here
is where I left you.
It was to test you.
Did you last that long?
So long.
Now
I understand you,
but can’t comprehend you.
And do I need to work so hard.
And I'd be on to you,
If I had more time

Slow
and I will kiss you.
I’ll most likely miss you.
Its been a long, long time.
And now
won’t you come over?
And like drunken rovers
we’ll stumble ‘round downtown.
And I'd be on to you,
If I had more time

Underneath your curtained window
I called out your name.
If I had more time

Here
is where I left you.
It was to test you.
And did you last that long?
So long.
And now I understand you,
but can’t comprehend you.
And do I need to work so hard.
And I'd be on to you,
If I had more time
More Time
If I had more time
If I had more time.

    General CommentI think it's "And I'd be onto you" because it would make sense more than "To not be onto you" because before that line he always talks about comprehending the other person...yeah

    General CommentI don't know why but it makes me think of Romeo and Juliet. Especially the "Underneath your curtained window/I called out your name." part.
