D You waved goodbye on the other side G A D G A And I said 'Hello, why don't you ever leave me?' D But she crossed the room and she tried to hide G A D G A I said 'I told you once. Why don't you believe me?' D And the pink light shined and knocked me blind G A D G A I said 'Would you mind if I tried to make this easy?' D And she clenched her eyes and she rolled her fists G A D G A And she wondered out loud what it takes to please me G I was halfway to the door A D And in the street, the band was playing just for me D G A x 3 D G A D Riff played over (D G A)

D Well I once knew her like I knew me G A D G A Nobody could see how she could own me D G In the room I was petrified and I tried A D G A My best to hide how she could use me D In neon signs a hundred feet high G A D G A I no doubt live forever, she would want me D G And I was left in no such doubt and in A D G A That one sweet moment, she would haunt me G And in my dreams and in my nightmares A D The band was there, playing just for me D G A x 3 D G A D Riff played over (D G A)

D I would die for you she cried G A D G A I tried not to decide how I would leave her D There was nothing left to tell myself G A D G A I wonder if I could believe her D No time to hide, no time to lie G A (and repeat for the rest of the song) No time to watch the world pass me by No time to grin, no time to choose No time to chase the ghosts from my shoes No time to win, no time to bawl No time to creep and no time to crawl No time for sleep, no time for sin No time to lose, and nothing to win No time for heroics, no time to feed Nothing to confess, hard to concede No time for sin, no time for love Sex was a curse sent from above No time to cry, no time to explain Nothing to scream and no one to blame No time for silence, no time at all No time to fail, and nowhere to fall No time to hide, no time to lie No time to watch the world pass me by No time to grin, no time to choose No time to chase the ghosts from my shoes No time to sleep, no time for sin No time to lose and no time to win
