"High Time" as written by and Toby Smith Jason Kay....
What a scene
What a drama
Just to find the door
That was mean
That was totally uncalled for
Have you reached the point
Where you must choose
Between what you lost and
What you stand to lose
Isn't it high time?

Could it be that the future's going
To turn out great?
Well, we'll see
Meantime somebody
Lays in wait
'Til you reach the point where
You must choose
Between what you've lost
And what you stand to lose
So come up with a new line
Cause baby it's high time

What a shame
I know nothing's ever
Been this tough
Out of blame
And out of all of that other stuff
But when you're alone with
What you've left
And you've done bereaved and
Been bereft enough
You have reached the point
Where you must choose
Between what you've lost
And what you stand to lose
Isn't it high time
Baby it's high time
Baby it's high time

    General CommentThis song is totally underrated and never received as much attention as it should have. It's one of the best songs I've ever heard, but no one else seems to have heard of it.
    I'm not sure what the meaning is about, though.

    General CommentI think this song is about something happening in your life that is really disappointing and kinda makes you re-evaluate your whole life. You kinda have to step back and take everything into account and see what needs to change and actually take a chance and make some changes in your life. I can really relate to the song because I'm going through something similar right now. Michael Penn is great and very underrated by the way.

    General CommentI think its about this girl, and theres' this guy whose in love with her. But then theres' this guy who broke her off and she can't get him back, even though shes' trying everything, but she keeps pushing they guy who really loves her back, and hes' sick of it so now its high time and shes reached the point where she must choose, between what shes' lost and what she stands to loose

    General Commentits my birthday in a couple of days and im turning 19, things arent going the way i imagined them would be when i was a child. I only have one really good friend from highschool who I am starting to feel doesnt think of me as that good of a friend, my younger cousin we havent hung out for a long time who used to be my best friend,my older cousin he might be seriously ill who i consider my brother since he is the one of the only people i can confide in and seek advice from,my dad worrying about our financial status, i am afraid to meet some girl i saw thinking that i am not good enough for her and regretting not taking that step not knowing what she'll think of me, i just hope things get better after i turn 19. i have reached the point where i must choose between what i've lost and what i stand to lose. will i be able to make a change for better in my life.what can i do? can someone teach me?
