    Time

    Well, the smart money's on Harlow
    And the moon is in the street
    The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
    And you're east of East St. Louis
    And the wind is making speeches
    And the rain sounds like a round of applause
    Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon
    His invisible fiance is in the mirror
    The band is going home
    It's raining hammers, it's raining nails
    Yes, it's true, there's nothing left for him down here


    And it's Time Time Time
    And it's Time Time Time
    And it's Time Time Time
    That you love
    And it's Time Time Time
    And they all pretend they're Orphans
    And their memory's like a train
    You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
    And the things you can't remember
    Tell the things you can't forget that
    History puts a saint in every dream
    Well she said she'd stick around
    Until the bandages came off
    But these mamas boys just don't know when to quit
    And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams
    Or are those prayers
    So just close your eyes, son
    And this won't hurt a bit

    Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
    The boys just dive right off the cars
    And splash into the streets
    And when she's on a roll she pulls a razor
    From her boot and a thousand
    Pigeons fall around her feet
    So put a candle in the window
    And a kiss upon his lips
    Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
    Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
    And pay the fiddler off till I come back again
