lyrics

you're young
with a body made for fun
and you always play for keeps
i'm old
with bones made of coal
from a fire i started for you long ago

i don't mean to kick a dead horse
if that's what it is let me know
i don't know the difference between the two
love and truth

don't tell me it's only
time
we're wasting
away

cause time's the only
thing
we can't get back
at all

and people wave their limbs to signify the goodbye
sadly i'm not so accustomed to the action myself
oh well
you used paper scissors to cut the flames
the blade burned
the fire stayed the same
i don't know the difference between the two
pain and you

don't tell me it's only
time
we're wasting
away
cause time's the only
thing
we can't get back
at all
