Time After Time (Annelise) - Lyrics by REM


Lyrics

Ask the girl of the hour by the water tower's watch
If your friends took a fall, are you obligated to follow

Time after time after time

when the bull's on his hooves, when you gather friends by the tower
If you try to refuse, will they judge your worth by the hour?

If your tired and you're tried you can find me in my room
You can stay if you want and the third time you can't lose

Ask the girl of the hour, by the water tower's watch
We can fight if you want but who will turn out the light
