Some look for a trainwreck 'cause their paths are far too straight
they find the one most likely to derail and I'm the perfect candidate
Some are lost at sea and are just looking for a dock
so I distract them with my singing till they break up on my rocks

Please don't call me please don't write me please don't visit I am not at home
Go back to your man and leave this precious little boy alone

Because timing is everything

I'm not a hammer I'm a crowbar I can't help you build anew
but if you're sure that it's all over then I'll help destroy your home for you
I distrust our best friends so that I can pinpoint and uproot
the ones who'll turn their back on us the day they finally learn the truth

That love will conquer all if all its enemies are weak enough
And lovers hate a paradox and love can't conquer love

Love can't conquer timing (it's everything)
Timing is everything

Love can't conquer love

I was such a good boy I was half as hard and twice as tough
Principled, invincible--the world and I were so in love

But tonight I want to drink and drive and sleep with someone I don't know
Beckon you through gunfire just to say hello (and watch you go)

Because timing is everything
