A Matter Of Time - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

It's a matter of time before we know
If you follow the signs, let your feelings show
Oh babe, you've got nothing to lose
We can talk for a while and that's all right
I can see in your eyes what you feel inside
You don't know what you've been doing
Leave me standing here
We are on the edge of reality

We've gone too far
Not the way that it's meant to be
It's a matter of time
It's just a matter of time

It's a matter of time before we say
We got out of line looking for the way
Oh babe, you've got something to hide

You can stay for a while and that's all right
I see in your smile what you feel tonight
You don't know what you've been doing
Leave us standing here
We are on the edge of reality

We've gone too far
Not the way that it's meant to be
It's a matter of time
It's just a matter of time

Are you really looking for someone
Who'll turn you on
And always be around you?

Take another look and you will see
That i will be waiting
It's a matter of time
It's a matter of time
Oh babe, it's just a matter of time
