lyrics

You and I was a powder keg, ready to explode
I should not have been taken by surprise when it did unfold
It did unfold

But let us talk no longer about who struck the first blow
It only ever leads to more as you and I both know
Oh we both know

So I will lay my arms down when the clock strikes twelve
There has to be a line somewhere so I'll lay it down myself
For time is marching onwards, leaving us behind
And time will march on, she won't change her mind

I never knew them teeth on you could cut to me so deep
I never knew I had such unpretty words inside of me

And you never said your sorry but I'll just act like you did
I've seen the way your walking with your tail between your legs
Oh between your legs

And I will lay my arms down when the clock strikes twelve
There has to be a line somewhere so I'll lay it down myself
For time is marching onwards, leaving us behind
And time will march on, she won't change her mind
