I wanted so badly somebody other than me
Staring back at me. But you were gone, gone, gone.
I wanted to see you walking backwards
To get the sensation of you coming home.
I wanted to see you walking away from me
Without the sensation of you leaving me alone.

CHORUS:
Time and time again.
Time and time again.
Time and time again.
I can't please myself.

I wanted the ocean to cover over me.
I wanna sink slowly without getting wet.
Maybe someday I won't be so lonely
And I'll walk on water, heh, every chance I get.

(CHORUS)

So when are you coming home, sweet angel?
You leaving me alone? All alone?
Well if I'm drowning darling, you'll come down this way on your own.
I wish I was travelin' on a freeway
Beneath this graveyard western sky.
I'm gonna set fire to this city
And out in the desert, yeah, we're gonna ride.

CHORUS:
Time and time again.
Time and time again.
Time and time and time again.
I can't please myself.

Ohhhh yeah.
I can't please myself and I, I can't please nobody else and...
Time again.
Time and time again.
Time and time and time and time again.

I can't please myself.
No no no no...
