time after time lyrics – cyndi lauper

“time after time”

lying in my bed i hear the clock tick,
and think of you
caught up in circles confusion –
is nothing new
flashback – warm nights –
almost left behind
suitcases of memories,
time after –

sometimes you picture me –
i’m walking too far ahead
you’re calling to me, i can’t hear
what you’ve said –
then you say – go slow –
i fall behind –
the second hand unwinds

[chorus:]
if you’re lost you can look – and you will find me
time after time
if you fall i will catch you – i’ll be waiting
time after time

after my picture fades and darkness has
turned to gray
watching through windows – you’re wondering
if i’m ok
secrets stolen from deep inside
the drum beats out of time –

[chorus:]
if you’re lost…

you said go slow –
i fall behind
the second hand unwinds –

[chorus:]
if you’re lost…
…time after time
time after time
time after time
time after time
