In time
You'll learn to say sorry
And I will play tender with you
In time
Your hands on my body will resonate through me
Like they did before
And then

I will be better
And we will be stronger
And you will be greater
The one that I always wanted you to be
If you can resist it
And make a commitment
And stay with me in this
Stay with me in this

(In time)
You'll be doing me right
I'm your girl in your light
When I'm holding you down
You be picking a fight
You've got a goddamn nerve
(In time)
I be feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane
(In time)
You've got a goddamn nerve
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane

The way you dismiss me
Will turn into missing me like I am yours
In time
The locks that you're turning
Will break and you'll let me discover you more
And then

I will be lonely
And you will be silent
And we will be dancing
The way that we're wanting each other to be
If you could commit to
Making me happy
And stay with me in this
Stay with me in this

(In time)
You'll be doing me right
I'm your girl in your light
When I'm holding you down
You be picking a fight
You've got a goddamn nerve
(In time)
I be feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane
(In time)
You've got a goddamn nerve
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane

I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
Everyday, everyday

I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
I've been feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
I've been feeling the same
Everyday, everyday

(In time)
You've got a goddamn nerve
(In time)
I'll be feeling the same
In the club, in the rave
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane
(In time)
You've got a goddamn nerve
Everyday, everyday
You be testing my sane

    General CommentI read this with the outlook of being a raver. This is a story about a drug fueled relationship that starts out lustful and full of life, but the guy just keeps partying and not wanting to commit.

    She keeps on trying to hold onto him, hoping that in time he'll finally treat her right, she'll be his girlfriend in the real world (in the light). But when she tries to hold him down he just fights and gets more distant.

    She just keeps partying with him, hoping that he'll finally want her one day. He gets more distant, hating that she doesn't want to just party and not be serious, and she just keeps going out hoping to make him change.

    In the club, in the rave. I still feel the same. She repeats this over and over frantically, it shows how much this is ruining her state of mind, but she just keeps on fighting with him and being who he wants her to be.
