"Time Awaits" as written by Max Rafferty, Luke Pritchard, Paul Garred and Hugh Harris....
Time waits for no man but you
Time waits for no man but you
Hold on don't leave this town
Hold on don't leave this town

There we are
We're that in our hands
They tear you down
Cause they don't understand
You tried it once again
To love me better
She tore those panties down
Love me wetter

Woo oh oh oh
And like ones and twos and threes and fours
Woo oh oh oh
And I hear you knocking at my door

So hold them down
With blood on your hands
It's past the point
Where you don't understand
The worst you do is lie
Run for shelter
So cast aside these chains
Love me better

Woo oh oh oh
And like ones and twos and threes and fours
Woo oh oh oh
And I hear you knocking at my door
Woo oh oh oh
And like ones and twos and threes and fours
Woo oh oh oh
And I hear you knocking at my door

I hear you knocking at my door darling twenty times or more
I hear you knocking at my door darling twenty times or more
I hear you knocking at my door darling twenty times or more
I hear you knocking at my door darling twenty times or more

    General CommentI didn't know young English kids could sing, much less write something like "she tore those panties down, love me wetter." I couldn't stop laughing when I first heard that because I didn't know English boys had it in them...


    what the FUCK man

    english boys are the best at writing stuff

    My InterpretationI think this song is about holding on to what you love and your way of expression, even though people might think you're crazy, but they just don't understand your art. Your time will come, just hold on. For the Kooks it really did, and that changes people's opinions on you. I think there's some girl that he really liked before but she rejected him, ("cast away these chains, love me better" - he wanted her to look past her prejudices and just like him the way he is) And now she's knocking at his door (figuratively speaking), 'cause his time has come and he's gotten famous for that art she didn't understand, but he won't let her in this time.

    General CommentNOTHING WRONG WITH REDNECK!!!!
    lol.
    Now that's over, i do love the funk it gets into,
    I think it's probably about sex.
    Or murder.
    not sure...
    lol, i think it maybe about a girl that seems to have baggage, and he says cut the crap, put effort into it or ill just ignore you, and leave you knocking at the door.
    probably wrong though

    General Commentpretty cool song, but you have the lyrics wrong
    its
    " life comes in twos and threes and fours"
    straight from the cd sleeve
    go the kooks.

    General Commentunfortunately the weakest song of a so-so album.It's a pity that kooks does'nt stronger songs becouse i love their style.but it's way over substance.

    General Comment'And like ones and twos and threes and fours!!'
    is my fave line of this song, it's the only 'rocky' bit of the whole song, yet it's a really good song none the less.
