time isnt on my side
any more than you
and thats the only thing
near this half-baked truth

I can tell you whats wrong
with this picture I took
dont remember where
I centered myself

waiting for the dusty shelf
to get wiped down
practicing my lines
with a personal shine

and now we'll doubt well try
to celebrate an expiration past its prime
stretching out the time will be fine
someone break it down, we'll be fine

time isnt on my side
any more than you
and thats the only thing
near this half-baked truth

and now we'll give it a rest
knowing thats its you who can say it best
show me what you feel abt yr mess
say fortunately I am impressed

    General Commentthis song turned me on to polvo. so good. the lyrics and the poppy sound make me think the speaker is talking to a girl. the hooks in this song are poppy but so noisy at the same time. and the melody is totally unique. amazing. heres what i thought the lyrics were.

    time isnt on my side any more than you
    thats the only thing here thats half way true

    i can tell you whats wrong with this picture
    taken from the angle where i center myself

    waiting for the dusty shelf to get wiped down
    practicing my minds inner plastic shell(?)

    and no hour of time
    to celebrate an aspiration past its prime

    stretching up and down were fine

    (the rest is what i thought too)

    thanks for posting this.

    General CommentI think these are the correct lyrics:

    Time isn't on my side and you know very well
    that's the only thing here that's halfway true
    I can tell you what's wrong with this picture
    taken from the angle where I center myself
    waiting for the dusty shelf to get wiped out
    practicing my lines in a busker shout
    and no bell will chime
    to celebrate an aspiration past its prime
    stretching out the downhill climb
    celebrate the downhill climb

    Time isn't on my side
    and you know very well
    that's the only thing that's halfway true
    and now give it a rest
    knowing that it's you who could say it best
    showing that you feel much less
    so fortunately i'm impressed
