Work Of Art: Lift

No Time To Think

Can you tell me where we left off?
Is it my turn now to write?
Things are stranger than they've ever been before
So I'm taking off tonight

Would you meet me if I asked you to?
Would you run away with me?
Could you leave behind your real world?
And bring to live this fantasy?

There's no time, no time to think if it's going to be okay
There's no time, no time to waste, don't let this moment slip away

I know that it's been a forever
Since we held each other tight
Now all I hold are letters that you send me
When you are all alone at night

There's no time, no time to think if it's going to be okay
There's no time, no time to waste, don't let this moment slip away

You're scared to death to leave, I know it's true
But darling I have faith in you

There's a train that leaves this station at 11:45
I'll be waiting on that platform for whatever you decide

There's no time, no time to think if it's going to be okay
There's no time, no time to waste, don't let this moment slip away
