Music by 10,000 Maniacs - Lyrics by Mary Ramsey & John Lombardo

I saw time turn
so much there to unlearn,
you were envy you wouldn’t say
you tore heart strings that sorry day
dark light hid the tears one
for each of the years
love has reasons
reason never knows
time turns over
love overflows
I should have spoken
sooner on that sorry day
your arms are open
and I wondered why
wondered why
five years passed to the day
time heals some people
say when you hurt the ones
I love you’re also hurting
me and time turns over
turning you from me
I thought you’d never reach me
on that sorry day
your arms were open wide
and I wondered why
