"No Time This Time" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
No time for the complexities of conversation
No time for smiles, no time for knowing
No time for the intricacies of explanation
No time for sharing, even less for showing

If I could
I'd slow the whole world down
I'd bring it to it's knees
I'd stop it spinning round
But as it is
I'm climbing up an endless wall

No time at all
No time this time
No time at all
No time this time

No time for a quick kiss at the railway station
No time for a suitcase, sandwich and a morning paper
Only time for time tables and transportation
No time to think, no time to dare

If I could
I'd slow the whole world down
I'd bring it to it's knees
I'd stop it spinning round
But as it is
I'm climbing up an endless wall

No time at all
No time this time
No time at all
No time this time

If I could
I'd slow the whole world down
I'd bring it to it's knees
I'd stop it spinning round
But as it is
I'm climbing up an endless wall

No time at all
No time this time
No time at all
No time this time
No time at all
No time this time
No time at all
No time this time
No time at all

No time at all
All
All

    General Comment… and after all the 'weird' Copeland numbers, the album closes on a suitable note, with the speedy super-energetic 'No Time This Time'. Copeland's drumming is at his all-time best on the track, and Sting's throbbing bass runs are breathtaking, plus Mr. Summers throws in the best guitar solo on the whole record (which is surprisingly mediocre anyway - Andy was never that good at lead playing). But the best part is, of course, Sting's wild wails on the chorus...

    General CommentThis song is really obvious. It’about how we’re so involved in our own worlds to stop and take time in the little things, to really live and know life. How “if I could” I “would” stop and change, realize what I’m doing and etc, but there’s no time, it’s about being too wrapped up in our own worlds, our own problems, “an endless wall”, to get the big picture.

    General CommentI'd say this song is about being in a rush. Having so many tasks to do in a day, and having no time to spare for anything else. I think all of us have had days like this. It's an easy song to relate to.
