"Time (Feat She Wants Revenge)" as written by Timothy Clayton, Timothy Z. Mosley, Adam Bravin and Justin Evan Warfield....
I got a feeling she keeps me in the dark
I gotta get keep my eye on her; she ain't no walk in the park
I offered this, but she want that; she, she, she want it all
You see, she wanted to paint the picture and say she my broad
I got a little tip from the word on the block
People saying I shouldn't get involved
But I didn't judge or try to change it
'Cause you are who you are
I'm like the drug; she's addicted to me
She can't leave me now
She always making plans to date
Come and find me tomorrow
Goodbye, girl

She's too invested in the hours that pass her by
I'd pay attention if I thought it was worth the time
I tell her easy, but her hands - they find a way
Confusing passion for the love we never gave
Fall back on reasons that we know won't stand a chance
Watching her shoulders like a memory from the past
I tell her easy, but her hands - they find a way
Confusing passion for the love we never gave

I couldn't get rid of shorty if I wanted
'Cause she was down, but I was tired of playin' the role
Like I ain't know that she get around
Something 'bout this girl fascinates me
She's the type that like to hang with the stars
The way she makes me feel, it sedates me
Who knew we would take it this far?
Everywhere that I try to go, she got a wanted poster with my face on it
Soon as I walk out the door, there it is
Wanted poster up with my face on it
Can't blame myself when it's not my fault
'Cause nothing is promised
At least I can say I was honest
Goodbye, girl

[Chorus x 2]

    General Commenthmmm.. I think he says "She's too unrested and the hours they pass her by." it makes sense to me.

    General CommentShe's basically has a guy already, but turns to another guy (singer) because she's not satisfied with the passionless relationship she's currently in. The new guy knows she's cheating around on him, but doesn't care enough to be affected by it. He seems to be in it too for momentary gain and amusement.

    General CommentMy take on this, which should mean something because I am experiencing this in real live.

    It's about a girl who already has a relationship, but cannot stop seeing the singer.
    She's too attracted. No chance.

    "She's too invested in the hours that pass her by" : she cannot let go of her current relationship ( probably because she's married ) but by doing this, her life ( the hours ) passes by and she doesn't get any satisfaction out of it.
    That's why she needs the singer. ( or in my case, me ;) )
    "She want it all" : she wants to have the security of her relationship and the excitement of seeing the singer.

    So the only thing he can do is break it off ( myself I did not succeed in this yet, because i love her too much ).
    But he has to ( as I will have to some day ) because that's the only way for him to get some balance in his life. She will never go all the way with him.

    Although I have the feeling that in my case, there's more real mutual love, not just 'that other thing', but I'm afraid the end result will be the same.

    This song really blasted me off my socks, because I discovered it when all of this was taking off.

    She want it all : she doesn't want to give up

    General Commentamazing song
    i think its about a guy being with a girl
    but the girl keeps him in the dark
    like she hides him from all her friends
    and he's saying that she is not an easy person to be with cause she wants all of him and she wanted him to say shes his woman but she doesnt want anyone to know that so hes like watever im gonna leave now so i dont have to deal with this, he was honest with her and now he doesnt want anything to do with her cuz he put all his time and effort into making this work but its just now working.

    "I tell her easy but her hands may find a way
    confusing passion for the love he never gave "

    he's talking about him being with her and her ex boyfriend being with her at a point and how he never showed her love but he is trying too but he doesnt think its worth it..

    idk if i got this right ...

    General Comment1st off...i'm amazed that a song from timbaland and she wants revenge is this awesome...but of course timbaland is amazing in general he can work with anyone!! n yeh of course she wants revenge is awesome =]

    yeh i agree w/ the comment above its about a girl whos messing around w/ an honest guy who honestly...does not want to be with her. at first he's too nice but now he's telling goodbye, he knows what they're doing is wrong and it's not his fault that her man cannot give her the love that she needs.

    because its a waste.

    General CommentI think the collaboration of this song is amazing. I have been a long time fan of She Wants Revenge. i think the lead singer's voice in the chorus is awesome, accompanied w/ Timbaland's beat. Very impressed. and i agree with quietgreyeyes that this will be heard in the clubs.

    General CommentI agree about the song's meaning, and I have to admit this is quickly becoming a favorite, as well. When I first heard it, I was like "WTF IS this?!?" But it started to grow on me before it was finished, now I've got it on repeat play & the more I listen, the more I like!

    Timbland can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. I'd never heard of She Wants Revenge before this, and the lead singer's voice was rather disturbing to me at first listen lol...wish I was young & healthy enough to go to clubs these days, I'd dance my @ss off to this!
