When I get the time
I'd like to sit down
and write a little rhyme for you
Just a couple few
I'd tell you what you mean to me

When I get the time
I'd put it all down
And pick you up
I'd say throw it all away
The world is me and you tonight

Will there come a day
With nothing standing in my way
Loving that dream
Within your arms
Well I'll make it happen some day

I look in your eyes
Warm places inside
I've never been before
I gotta find some more
I know you don't owe me anything

When I get the time
When I get the guts
To live my life for me
And do what I want to do
I'd be the friend that you said you once knew

Will there come a day
When we give up and turn away
And I'd have nothing left
Nothing left except
I'd have all the time in the world

Time to remember
Look through the window
And time to cry
Time to cry
I gotta get the time

Where can I find the time?

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite girl songs ever. He is either in love with his friend or just madly in love with his girlfriend. I don't think that he can be around all the time, or is constantly busy hence the title, "Get the Time." It's about that girl that makes you OK. Makes you feel like you are not a total failure and there is hope for you. I love this song.

    General CommentI think this is just about ordinary pressures (work/school/whatever) getting in the way of relationships. The whole song's good, but I love the last two verses.
