Your shutters are wide open
but your soul’s like a closed gate
The memory of you sways by
Like a flower going to fade
I’ve hung upon your laughter
I’ve hung like a slave
But I ain’t got time to wait

I’ve got no time to wait for
your love to unfold and bloom
Till all your pretty Romeos
are sent back to the gloom
No time to wait until you cease
following teenage ways
I ain’t got time to wait

All those summer evenings
torn waiting for your call
The hope for deliverance
from betting on a dead horse
You broke into my troubled life
and you broke in like a raid
But I ain’t got time to wait

I ain’t got time to wait
I ain’t got time to wait
No matter how pretty your face
I ain´t got time to wait

Don’t wanna see the kissing traces
left upon your neck
Don’t wanna be exposed no more
to your charms and tenderness
I leave you behind as a memory
You can call it pride if you look for a name
or just a man who ain’t got time to wait

I ain’t got time to wait
This life is too short to waste
No more sense in keeping up that charade
And like an organic process I will change my shape

Leaving you is the price I gotta pay
to find my luck along the way
Time to gain control of my fate
I may have loved you or fooled myself

I ain’t got time to wait
The longer I stay the faster I will fade
No matter how pretty you are
or how bright your grace
I ain´t got time to wait
