"Waiting on the Clock" as written by Brian David James Briggs and Oliver Ian Steadman....
i was just a boy and you were still a girl
in the reckless freedom of our newfound world
i made you a tape of all my favourite tunes
one headphone for me and one headphone for you

and each night, i'd go working in the cafe
all night, i'd be waiting on the clock to say
midnight, i'd go running round to worcester place
heart thumping as i climb the spiral staircase

your college room was freezing in that winter break
and so we stayed in bed for two whole nights and days
you said you'd eat my goldfish you were so hungry
so on our shaking knees we went to try sushi

and each night, i went working in the cafe
all night, i'd be waiting on the clock to say
midnight, i'd go running round to worcester place
heart thumping as i climb the spiral staircase

and each night, i'd go working in the cafe
all night, i'd be waiting on the clock to say
midnight, i'd go running round to worcester place
heart thumping as i climb the spiral staircase

half twelve, and i'm standing in your doorway
half-scared, wondering what the hell you're gonna say
half-drunk, so i'm gonna tell you anyway
