It's just a stitch in time
It's perfect, I don't mind
Sailing on your endless sea
You're perfect, I don't mind
I've got your stitch in mine
Everywhere I wanna be

Don't say you want too much
They'll say you've had enough
Don't let them lay their trips on you

There's somewhere I just gotta be...
You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free...
You're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out
There's somewhere I just gotta be

It's just a stitch in time
We fit together fine
A puzzle looking for its piece
You're perfect, I don't mind
Your travel makes you mine
Everywhere I look I see

Don't say you want too much
They'll say you've had enough
Don't let them lay their trips on you

There's somewhere I just gotta be...
You're everywhere at once, and you can't break free...
You're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me, watch out
There's somewhere I just gotta be...

    General Commentthis is the third song of teargarden by kaleidyscope... first is "a song for a son" then " widow wake my mind"... this song is very psychedelic sounding, as for the meaning, i am not too sure, but it is a good song in my opinion

    General Commentthis song is about leaving the rest of the world behind you to focus on the one person you truly care about. it's "a stitch in time"; Billy is saying here that he is completely in the moment with his loved one, without regard to time or obligations. "don't say you want too much; they'll say you've had enough." believe that life can be beautiful, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. the song does take a bit of a detour from this optimistic image: "there's somewhere i've just gotta be." he recognizes that this cannot last forever, because sooner or later the stitch in time will end, and they will have to return to their lives. "you're everywhere at once, and you can't catch me; watch out". Billy is saying that he is a free spirit, and he cannot be contained. basically, it is about a relationship in which they love being together, but still have certain obligations and duties to fulfill elsewhere.

    cheers to the great Corgan. another gorgeous work of art.
