A million tiny lights are strung across the western sky
They burn to light our mission
But it's just a million lonely hearts strung out from never asking why
We burn with blind ambition

I heard somebody say, I don't regret my wedding day
But something's wrong, it's not the same
I'm lonely and I'd start again
If I had the time precious time

But I don't ask much just to keep in touch
And waste a little of your precious time
Waste a little of your precious time

A million dollars never justified a million lies
To jockey for position
And if two hearts can't beat as one
How can a million souls survive in this world of suspicion?

I heard somebody say, I dream about my wedding day
Through lonely nights I dream of you
A lover though a friend would do
I'd find him if I had the time, precious time

But I don't ask much, just to keep in touch
And waste a little of your precious time
Waste a little of your precious time

And I don't ask that much, just to keep in touch
And waste a little of your precious time

And just a smile's enough, just some of that human stuff
Waste a little of your precious time, precious time
