Pound for pound and cheek to cheek
Cheek paler than the lamp-light
Take me down to light the box
And play Super Scalextrics

You turn to this darkness
Into light and you'll turn too bright
Forget all the hype

I'll need heart and you'll need courage
We all need

Toe to toe, nowhere to go
So, I'm tiptoein' around it
I held you down and I held my own
Now, I feel like I'm floating

So turn to this head on
And keep on
Keeping on

And I'll need heart and you'll need courage
We all need time

So, let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us

Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it

Don't you know, nobody knows
If there's somebody awaitin'?
You hold yourself up and you hold yourself in
And pray that you're growing

And you turn to this darkness
You turn it into light and then you'll turn to fight
Forget all the hype

And I'll need heart and you'll need courage
We all need time

So, let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us
Let's make time work for us

Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it

Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about it
Let's take our precious time about

'Cause we'll need heart and we'll need courage
In these times
We'll need heart and we'll need courage
In these times
'Cause time can mean so much

Are you still mine?
