A coyote ran across the road
On the move without a home
A flash of light reminded me of you

This could well be your last stand
Hold the sunlight in your hand
Spread your fingers, feel the sand fall through

I've done all I can do
Now it's up to you

You're flirting with time, baby
Flirting with time, and maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

Shadowmen talk a real good game
Every punchline has your name
You cried out and no one came to you

I've done all I can do
Now it's up to you

You're flirting with time, baby
Flirting with time, and maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

Should be more to learn from this
Can't say I know what it is
No difference 'tween a hit or miss, it's true

I've done all I can do
Now it's up to you

You're flirting with time, baby
Flirting with time, and maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

You're flirting with time, baby
Flirting with time, and maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you

You're flirting with time, baby
Flirting with time, and maybe
Time baby, is catching up with you
