Don Dixon – Borrowed Time lyrics

When I picked up at the table a cup full of your eyes
Am I fit to wear the ashes of a hundred thousand lies?
Well the smell stayed in motion and hangs upon the breath
But I have the constitution to ask if someone's left
But I felt your kiss at sunset beneath the bridges??? Sights???
And I've entertained the diamonds that have washed out of your eyes
When you left me for your children, you left my life a wreck
You leave me with this question, well what did you expect?
And it's so hard living on borrowed time
Yes I'm so tired of living on borrowed time
You can't seem to let me go and it moves so slow
Well it feels like turning tables to touch your frozen hand
And I'm paralysed by passion that I cannot understand
When your eyes give me the message that your lips can never face
Should I lock away my shadow, leaving me without a trace?
And it's so hard living on borrowed time
Yes I'm so tired of living on borrowed time
I can't seem to make you see that the victim's real
Oh I'm so tired of living on borrowed time
Yes it's so hard living on borrowed time
I can't seem to let you go and it moves so slow, oh it moves so slow, yes it moves so slow

I can't tell you all I'm feeling
I can't trust you 'till you make mistakes
Oh I'm so tired of living on borrowed time
Yes it's so hard living on borrowed time
I can't seem to make you see that the victim's real
Yeah, it's so hard living on borrowed time
Yes I'm so tired of living on borrowed time
I can't seem to let me go and it moves so slow, yes it moves so slow (Moves so slow)
It moves so slow (Moves so slow), yes it moves so slow
