Tick-tock of the clock
Make a wish, but the time won’t stop
I saw the glow of city lights
Never thought I’d say that they shine too bright

Could it be
That it’s me
Looking back to nowhere
Back to nowhere

I’m sick of standing in line
Waiting turns is a waste of my time
I’m tired of holding my tongue
With nothing said then nothing gets done

Chorus:
Could it be
That it’s me
Looking back to nowhere
Back to nowhere
Fine
Take your time
I will be here waiting
Be here waiting
Fine
I’ll be fine
I’ll just stand here waiting
Stand here waiting

One more for the road
Liquid hot to melt the cold
If I caught one last stare
Could I keep myself from looking
Back to nowhere

Chorus

Could it be
That it’s me
Looking back to nowhere
Back to nowhere

So just take your time
Just take your time
Take your time
Take your time
Fine take your time
I will be here waiting
Be here waiting
Fine
I’ll be fine
I’ll just stand here waiting
Stand here waiting

Could it be
That it’s me
Looking back to nowhere
Back to nowhere

    General Commentthis song is beautiful. you can just hear the emotion in his voice. i especially love the break down "just take your time..."

    it seems to be about someone who is holding on to a relationship in hopes that things will get better when there is nothing left to hold to.

    This song is one of those songs I sing at the top of my lungs in my car driving home at night. It just hits the spot and the memories.....I miss you Neil

    General CommentI guess all songs are different to everyone... but to me, this song stands for something that never happened. A chance never taken. "With nothing said, then nothing gets done" ::sigh:: This song really does hit the spot. I'll be fine. I'll just stand here waiting.
