When - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Chris thompson vocals

Standing around for an hour in the rain
The porcelin promise is breaking once again
Fill me with everything i want to hear
These are the same lines that i heard last year
And you always seem to talk and walk away
Saying things will start to happen anyday

And i say when
So tell me when
And i say when
So tell me when

I've heard so much about boats coming in
Well i've seen no ships so i guess i should swim
How did i come to get caught in your wake
The more that i give you the more you still take
And you always seem to talk and walk away
Saying things will start to happen any day

And i say when
So tell me when
And i say when
So tell me when

Monday is tuesday then march becomes may
The days of my life are just ticking away

So i say when
So tell me when
I say when
So tell me when
