Well, call me if you want to talk
There's a telephone on your wall
And the reasons are many and not too far apart
If there's some blood left in your heart
Well, let our loving finally start
If you run, you can catch me
It's wide but not too short
I want to hear the wistle blow and feelings go
I want to be done with everything I know

Difference is time
It's the best prison waiting in line
Difference is time
It's yours and it's especially mine
Difference is time

It's hard to stand on my feet
With this weight of vagrancy
I've been trying to tell the difference
Between the road and my street
But there's an Eden I shouldn't eat
When I'm done dancing to this beat
On my headstone it'll be written
"Life is hard even if you cheat"

I want to hear the wistle blow
And the feet is row
I want to be done with everyone I know
The difference is time
It's the best prison waiting in line
Difference is time
It's yours and it's especially mine
Difference is time
Difference is time

Don't act like there ain't nothing wrong
With a switch like that
It's just mean to keep it on
Don't act like there ain't nothing wrong
With a switch like that
It's just mean to keep it on

Difference is time
It's the past prison waiting in line
Difference is time
It's yours and it's especially mine
Difference is time
It's the best prison waiting in line
Difference is time
I know she's yours but she's especially mine
Difference is time
Woah
Difference is time

Difference is time
Difference is time
She ain't yours and she sure ain't mine
She ain't yours and she sure ain't mine
Difference all the time
Difference all the time

    General Comment"My head is wide, but not too sharp"

    or

    "My hate is wide, but not too sharp"

    I think it's "hate" though.


    "It's the past present waiting in line"

    General CommentThat line about Eden isn't right either, but i have no idea what he's actually saying there. Something about an "end"


    "I want to hear the whistle blow
    And the feelings roll" (it could be row...he sure says it funny)

    General CommentAntonskey, I think the line should be ...

    "There's an end I will surely meet."

    That's what I hear anyway.

    General CommentYer I'm not sure if many of these lyrics are right. is the chorus not "the past, present waiting in line"?

    Checked a few sites and the lyrics this chump posted are wrong. Anyway let us not squabble. It's an amazing song much like everything else he does. Although this sounds like somebody else wrote this song.

    As for the line bout being wide and sharp. That's anybodies guess. Each time I listen I hear something else. Maybe it's the beers but I thought I just heard "my hairs white but not to sharp"?

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS

    Call me if you wanna talk
    There's a telephone on your wall
    And the reasons are many
    And not too far apart

    If there's some blood left in your heart
    Well let our loving finally start
    If you run, you can catch me
    My hate is wide but not too sharp

    I wanna hear the whistle blow
    And the feelings go
    I wanna be done with everything I know

    But difference is time
    It's the past, present, and waiting in line
    Difference is time
    It's his and yours, and it's especially mine
    Difference is time

    It's hard to stand on my feet
    With this weight of vagrancy
    I been trying to tell the difference
    Between the road and my street

    There's an end I will surely meet
    When I'm done dancing to this beat
    On my headstone in will be written
    "Life is hard even if you cheat"

    I wanna hear the whistle blow
    And the feelings roll
    I wanna be done with everyone I know
