if i had back all the time i'd lost
i'd spend it with me again
but this time
we'd have more fun
like we'll do tomorrow

Hours turn into days you know
watch them and watch them and watch them go
Days turn into weeks you know
Watch them and watch them and watch them go
Weeks turn into months you know
Watch them and Watch them and watch them go
Months turn into years you know
Watch them and watch them and watch them go

etc...

    second half

    If I had back all the time I've lost I'd spend it with me again But this time, we'd have more fun Like we'll do tomorrow

    Help's on the way (I look out of my eyes) We just can't wait (at you looking at me) This time of day (it takes so long before you blink and I) We've said all we can say (get this out of my head)

    Just think no one will be (Home today) Object to being reset (back to the bay) So bright, so sleepy-eyed (to western rain) Not enough to ??? (coming from the eastern shade)

    Hours turn to days, you know Watch them and watch them and watch them go

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
