lyrics

time alone
time alone again

I got my old ways
I got my new ways
sitting here
just breaking apart
I can’t imagine
my life’s precision
open to you
opened my heart
a girl knows her secrets well
some alone would do you well

I got my old ways
I got my new ways
lifting me out of the dark
our situation
a strangled nation
bring me babe
back to the start

keep it on the back side of time
I’m just glad I’m alive
this is the bad side of me
nobody said prepared you are free
not this time

I got my old ways
I got my new ways
hold me dear
I’m breaking apart
I’ve got this vision
our lives collision
carefully pulling apart
and who knows what secrets will come
suppose we’re last to learn

keep it on the back side of time
I’m just glad I’m alive
this is the bad side of me
nobody said prepared you are free
not this time

I got my old ways
I got my new ways
help me dear
I’m breaking apart
a bright transition
a composition
suddenly back at the start
and who knows when the end will come
that secret sounds too sudden

keep it on the back side of time
I’m just glad I’m alive
this is the bad side of me
nobody said prepared you are free
not this time

I know
let go
let go
“Come inside” he said

I know

time alone
time alone again
