Lyrics:

I’ve got time to think about the meaning of the thousand variations of the beating of a wing of a hummingbird suspended in the aspic of the world moving slower than molasses as I’m off to catch the girl who is falling off the cliff
and I’m there before she knows it
I’ll be gone before she sees me
with my hand around her waist
I pull her back to safety
by the time she knows what’s happened
there’ll be someone else who needs me
because time keeps dragging on
and on
and on
and on
(time keeps dragging on)
I’ve got time to think about my past as I dodge between the bullets how my life was so exciting before I got this way and how long ago it was now I never can explain by the clock that’s on the tower or the one that’s in my brain
and I’m there before you know it
I’ll be gone before you see me
and I’d like to get to know you
but you’re talking much too slowly
and I know you’d really like me
but I never stick around
because time keeps dragging on
and on
and on
and on
and on
And you say the world goes rushing by
but it seems so slow to me
and you see a blur around you fly
but it takes too long
it seems so slow to me
(time keeps dragging on)
How I wish I’d never gone into my lab to experiment that night before lightning flashed around me
and time changed speed
now I have to try to be so patient and wait for calamity to strike
because when things change in an instant
it’s almost fast enough for me
and I’ll be there before you know it
I’ll be gone before you see me
and do you think you can imagine
anything so lonely
and I know you’d really like me
but I never stick around
because time keeps dragging on
and on
and on
and on
and on
And you say the world goes rushing by
but it seems so slow to me
complain I’m gone before you blink your eye
but it takes too long
it seems so slow
And you say the world goes rushing by
but it seems so slow to me
and I want to be there while you laugh or cry
but it takes too long
it seems so slow to me
(time keeps dragging on)
and on
and on
