Lyrics for The Time by Dave Stewart and Boris Grebenshikov from the album Radio Silence


Sitting in a corner
In my castle made of single-malt and smoke
With all my friends around me
And I love them ’til I choke
And I watch you dance with someone
Someone not even there
And you’re simple as in “sacrilege”
And you’re pure as in “prayer”

Somewhere there’s a point of no resistance
But we make sure there’s no getting there
And we’re beautiful when we’re animals
But so easily scared
And I cannot even talk to you
Stricken down as a hunter to its prey
sliding down, downthis hill of glass again
And there’s nothing I can say

I guess it’s just the time
I guess it’s just the time
I guess it’s just the time
And I will see you when the time is over

And then the northern wind calls
And then curtains part
And then the castle wall falls
And there’s an arrow in my heart

There’s only one way out of prison
Which is to set your jailer free
But then, it’s just another bunch of pretty words
That stand between the sailor and the seaa
So forgive me, though I know you never will
Battered by your pride
And so I’m locked again within these castle walls
And you freeze alone outside
