I wonder where the junkies go to die
Are you a friend or just some passer by
Cos lately it feels like I might need some time

If you want me
Then you've found me
With time out of mind

Lately I've wondered how many I's there are in mine
If this ain't real then what's the point in trying
Lately it feels like I might need some time

If you want me
Then you've found me
With time out of mind

And darling I wonder how many signs you'll find tonight
We all know it's the longest ties that bind
Still lately it feels like I'm on my knees each time

If you want me
Then you've found me
With time out of mind

Yeah I'm the nowhere man
And I know I know where I stand

If you want me
Then you've found me
With time out of mind

    General CommentI love this song and was fortunate enough to hear it live (twice!) It is awesome and Finn sings it so beautifully. I think its about a drug habit, possibly, or just a guy who needs a bit of time to reflect. No hidden meaning imo just a good bit of raw emotion.

    General CommentActually the song is taken in parts from the novel "The Horse and His Boy" by C.S.Lewis. Parts of it were incorporated into the song. Its a wonderful song having said that and I love the hell outta it.
