lifeblood: songs: lyrics: killing time


who is counting sleepless nights
who is counting letters i meant to write
i said who is counting at all
if you are
i look pretty small

but no matter what i do
if i couldn't call you mine
if i couldn't be with you
i'd just be killing time

you went searching for me in the night sky
and when i burned away you wondered why
well i'll tell you babe i could not bear to stall
i fell too fast i fell too far

but no matter what i do
if i couldn't call you mine
if i couldn't be with you
i'd just be killing time

big big fishes in little ponds
i've seen them walk around with magic wands

but no matter what i do
if i couldn't call you mine
if i couldn't be with you
i'd just be killing time

there ain't no magician hidden inside of me
so no matter what you hear i hope you see
that just when i'm trying to be tall
that's when i end up looking pretty small

but no matter what i do
if i couldn't call you mine
if i couldn't be with you
i'd just be killing time

no matter what i do
(and you know i will burn)
if i couldn't be call you mine
(like a star in the sky)
if i couldn't be with you
(all i'd be doing is)
i'd just be killing time

but no matter what i do
if i couldn't call you mine
if i couldn't be with you
i'd just be killing time
