Waved goodbye on the other side then said
"Hello don't you ever leave me"
She crossed the room and she tried to hide and said
"I told you once why don't you believe me?"
And the pink light shined knocked me blind I said
"Would you mind if I tried to make this easy?"
She clenched her eyes and rolled her fists and
wondered out loud what it takes to please me

But I was half way to the door and in the street
the band was playing just for me

I once knew her like I knew me nobody could
see how she could own me
In her room I was petrified and tried my best
to hide how she could use me
In neon signs a hundred feet high no doubt
left forever she would want me
And I was left in no such doubt that in that
one sweet moment she would haunt me

And in my dreams and nightmares the
band was there playing just for me

"I would die for you" she cried I tried
not to decide how I would leave her
There was nothing left to tell myself and
wonder if I could believe her

No time to hide no time to lie no time to
watch the world pass me by
No time to grin no time to choose
no time to chase the ghosts from my shoes
No time to win no time to bawl no time to
creep and no time to crawl
No time to sleep no time to sin no
time to lose and nothing to win

No time for heroics no time to feed nothing
to confess or to concede
Nothing to save no time for love,
sex was a curse sent from above
No time to cry no time to explain nothing
to scream and no one to blame
No time for silence no time at all no time to
fail and nowhere to fall

No time to hide no time to lie no time to
watch the world pass me by
No time to grin no time to choose
no time to chase the ghosts from my shoes
No time to win no time to bawl no time to
creep and no time to crawl
No time to sleep no time to sin no
time to lose and nothing to win
