I'm in need of the answer, in search of the question, in love with being broken-hearted
Days race by faster, it's a made up lesson and I'm lost before I've started
A little white lie, a big black sky, and emptiness open on the dashboard
You feel a lack of self and it's someone else telling you to try where you failed before

Where does the time go? I don't know
It's moving underneath me
Like I'm moving in slow-mo(tion)
I reach out though
It passes too quick to see me

Living on the back nine, living out your past life, trying to make a living as an outlaw
But the problem you see, stealing ain't what it used to be, everyone's used to it by now
You pack up your gun, make your best run, your thinking isn't breaking any new ground
But is there such a thing when you watched the rain, wash away everything that you thought you'd found?

Where does the time go? I don't know
It's moving underneath me
Like I'm moving in slow-mo(tion)
I reach out though
It passes too quick to see me

I think that this could be the last one, Jimmy
Why don't you come and take this last one with me?
I gotta say that it's good to be home
Sometimes I miss you when I'm out there alone
So come around some time, clear your mind, it's getting harder as the weeks slip away
You can turn on a dime, pass you up blind while you're waiting for the truth to come your way

Your time will come
If you let it be right, if you let it be right
Your time will come
If you let it be right, if you let it be right
Your time will come
If you let it be right, if you let it be right
Your time will come
If you let it be right, if you let it be right

    My Interpretationthis song is awesome because 1- amazing lyrics and 2- it's in the show suits!

    I think this song is about believing that things will be okay even if you've had bad experiences in the past. Everyone knows how hard it can be to start over and hope for the best. This song seems like someone is living in a rut and thinks they don't have a chance, although their friends know they have the potential to come out of it. Living this way the days all see the same and time is "slipping away".

    I also think that this person made a mistake A little white lie, a big black sky, an emptiness open on the dashboard" then Livin’ on the back nine, livin’ out your past life, tryin’ to make a livin' as an outlaw" I wanna guess that he did somethign that made him ashamed and think this mistake would mark the rest of his life

    My InterpretationThe way I look at it, the song is about self doubt, while time passes and we all get older. Whether or not they actually matter at all, those complicated questions. Things will become clear with time.
