Asia – Only Time Will Tell lyrics

You're leaving now
It's in your eyes
There's no disguising it
It really comes as no surprise
To find that you planned it all along

I see it now
Becomes so clear
Your insincerity
And me all starry-eyed
You'd think that I would have known by now

Now, sure as the sun will cross the sky
The lie is over
Lost, like the tears that used to tide me over

Chorus:
Only time will tell
One thing is sure
That time will tell
Only time will tell
If you were wrong
The brightest ring around the moon
Will darken when I die

Now sure as the sun will cross the sky
The lying's over
Gone, like the tears that used to tide me over

You're leaving now
It's in your eyes
There's no disguising it
It really comes as no surprise
To find that you planned it all along

Only time will tell
I see it now, become so clear
Only time will tell
Your insincerity
And me all starry-eyed
You'd think that I would have known by now

Now, sure as the sun will cross the sky
The lie is over
Lost, like the tears that used to tide me over

Only time will tell
You're on your own inside your room
Only time will tell
You're claiming victory
You were just using me
And there is no one you can use now
Only time will tell
One thing is sure...

    Everytime I hear this song, I'm transported back to the early 80's, a melonchony longing immediately overcomes me, I am again that 18 year old girl heartbroken by my first love. The song is about betrayals, of a lover who used you than threw it all away. In the 30 years hence I met and married my husband and father of my two college age children. I love him deeply and dearly so time worked out well for me. Yet, this song stirs the memory of that first love, and all the intensity of my long past youth.
