Time


I found the Holy Bible on a bench outside the courthouse
And I am scared because I do not think of God, no no
The thoughts that cross my mind
Are neither holy, nor divine
Just simple human longings for the boy who does not believe
He once believed in me

So I walked on and stuffed that heavy new book under my arm
And then I got in my car and drove on home
I thought of words he said
'Bout where we're going once we're dead
But other worries fill my head
It's selfish and I know I'm wrong
But I'll miss him when he's gone

Yeah I still fear the black
But there's no looking back
And if I'm dying, I'm just dying for you, dear
Can't tell which way to go
I doubt we'll ever know
Let's take advantage of the time that we've got here
'Cause time's all we've got here

I made it home, unlocked the door, and tossed that book onto the floor
Where it sat waiting like I'm waiting for the truth, so
I put it in a box under my bed, with all those silly things I've kept
And I will leave it there unread, so I can get back to
Figuring out how I'll get through today and tomorrow

Yeah I still fear the black
But there's no looking back
And if I'm dying, I'm just dying for you, dear
Can't tell which way to go
I doubt we'll ever know
Let's take advantage of the time that we've got here
'Cause time's all we've got here

And if it's just gonna end, what's the point of it all?
Call it quits, cut out early, this is surely your fault
When I fall back to you, I am through, I am through
Oh but I do...I do...

Yeah I still fear the black
But there's no lookin' back
And if I'm dying, I'm just dying for you, dear
Can't tell which way to go
I doubt we'll ever know
Let's take advantage of the time that we've got here
'Cause time's all we've got here
