  • 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.
    (Ah)
    And I need just a little more silence
    (Ah)
    And I need just a little more time

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

    [Chorus]
    Leave me be, I don't wanna argue
    I'd just get confused and I'd come all undone
    And 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 you spin in a circle of gold
    You 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
    The courage to pull away
    There will be hell to pay
    The deeper you cut to the bone

    [Chorus]

    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.

    [Chorus]
