Time Lyrics

by Sarah McLachlan

Time here, all but means nothing
Just shadows that move across the wall
They keep me company but they don't ask of me
They don't say nothing at all

And I need just a little more silence
And I need just a little more time

You send your thieves to me, silently stalking me
Dragging me into your world
Would you give me no choice in this?
I know you can't resist trying to reopen a sore

Leave me be, I don't want to argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
If I agree, well it's just to appease you
'Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for

You see love
The tight, thorny thread that's just spin in a circle of gold
To have me, to hold me, a token for all to see
Captured to be yours alone

And I need just a little more silence
And I need just a little more time
Courage to pull away, there will be hell to pay
The deeper you cut to the bone

Leave me be, I don't want to argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
If I agree, well it's just to appease you
'Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for

Time here all but means nothing
Just shadows that move across the wall
They keep me company but they don't ask of me
They don't say nothing at all

So leave me be, I don't want to argue
I just get confused and I come all undone
If I agree, well it's just to appease you
'Cause I don't remember what we're fighting for
