Time Waits For No One Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

Loneliness can lock you up
Like prison walls around your heart
You waste away, you fall apart
The seconds tick away and the world is turning
So take me in your arms while the need is burning, baby

Time, time waits for no one
Especially me, baby, don't know about you, oh
Time, time, time waits for no one
So what about it, do you wanna run away with me?

Your tender words release my soul
You move so strong, you've got to know
Your eyes reveal that maybe we should try
The walls won't come down unless you open fire
We gotta make a move 'cause you can't deny it, baby

Time, time waits for no one
Especially me, baby, don't know about you, oh
Time, time, time waits for no one
So what about it, do you wanna run away, run away, run away?

You can run from me but you can't run from yourself
You'd only lose what you really want to love
It's a sad, sad story, it's always the same
If you don't take chances, there's nothing to gain
Run away, run away

The walls won't come down unless you open fire
We gotta make a move, can't deny it

Time, time waits for no one, oh, oh
Especially me, baby, don't know about you, oh
Time, time, time waits for no one
So what about it, do you wanna run away, run away, run away?

Take me in your arms
Time, time waits for no one, ooh
So what about it, do you wanna run away, run away, run away?
Time
