This Precious Time - Single Version Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You've been keeping me lonely
You've been keeping me down
And I'm sitting here wondering
Why I'm still hanging around
Verse 2
The night's grown cold, babe
Can't you see the signs?
Ah, there's no use wasting
This precious time
Verse 3
Look out your window
Ah, can't you see?
That the sun is getting fast
For you and me
Verse 4
Ah, you've grown hard, babe
Can't you see the signs?
Ah, there's no use wasting
This precious time
Verse 5
Well, I should be out seeking
Instead of hiding
Yeah, I should be out laughing
Instead of crying, crying, crying
Verse 6
'Coz you've been keeping me lonely
You've been keeping me down
And I'm sitting here thinking to myself
Why I'm sticking around
Verse 7
When you no longer hear me
And your eyes can't see
What this precious time
Means to someone like me
Verse 8
Oh, I wanna start living
Life's for the taking
And I've gotta start living
If I wanna be tasting, tasting, tasting
This precious time
