You shouldn’t watch the clock that way
Cause time doesn’t mean a thing when I’m with you
You said the world was in your way
I said, “The world can’t stop, but it can wait.”

Time restrains
Time to find out
You better learn; you better learn
Time is not on our side
You better learn; you better learn

Don’t let the moment pass us by
The world won’t stop, but it can wait
The world won’t stop, let’s make it wait
Make it wait…

Time restrains
Time to find out
You better learn; you better learn
Time is not on our side
You better learn; you better learn

You and I, we feel so right
So please don’t leave
You and I, we feel so right
So please don’t leave me

Time restrains
(The world won’t stop…)
Time to find out
You better learn; you better learn
(The world won’t stop…)
Time is not on our side
(The world won’t stop…)
You better learn; you better learn

    But Matt doesnt like singing it anymore.

    General CommentNot going on the EP, Matthew took all the rights to every song he wrote, so uh yeah all you'll ever hear this on it the Tied By Miles demo which I have signed, so thatll be like a freaking collectors item in a few years XD
