Merchandise - Time lyrics

Time, you've bested me again
I keep trying but I can't win
Tell me father, where you been?
I'm alone, but used to it

But when I was a boy
I would have nightmares in the day
While the adults were busy sleeping
They'd pretend to be awake

So I took a lover, oh yeah
Just to kill some time
She always loves to leave me hanging out to dry
If you're feeling lonesome, baby, I'll be your best friend
But don't expect to call me
If you need a hand

Oh I fell in love again
The kind that's like quicksand
I guess I didn't understand
I just like to lose my head

Oh I guess I made the same mistake
By opening my heart
Girl I'm really just an animal
Made with human parts

We're still young, baby, but we're getting old
I can't sleep in this bed with you anymore
I know your body and I miss it like your voice

But I'm leaving, girl
So you've got no choice
