Time

by Tom Waits


Well, the smart money´s on Harlow
And the moon is in the street
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And you´re east of East St. Louis
And the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon
His invisible fianc is in the mirror
The band is going home
It´s raining hammers, it´s raining nails
Yes, it´s true, there´s nothing left for him down here

And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
That you love
And it´s Time Time Time

And they all pretend they´re Orphans
And their memory´s like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can´t remember
Tell the things you can´t forget that
History puts a saint in every dream
Well she said she´d steak around
Until the bandages came off
But these mamas boys just don´t know when to quit
And Matida asks the sailors are those dreams
Or are those prayers
So just close your eyes, son
And this won´t hurt a bit

And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
That you love
And it´s Time Time Time

Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the street
And when she´s on a roll she pulls a razor
From her boot and a thousand
Pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And play the fiddler off till i come back again

And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
And it´s Time Time Time
That you love
And it´s Time Time Time
