Waiting for you
It's a lonely business
What more can I do
I could be here until Christmas

Why do you want to go saying those sins about me?
Don't you know that a girl can't be made to hurry?
Don't you want me to feel like a million dollars?
I'm just taking some time out to make a difference

Chained, one step over the line
Trying to get something to work
All I need is someone to say

After all
What's the mystery?
When everybody wants to know
About destiny

Just trying to kill a little time

Working hard day to day
Why complain about it
Don't you know that a man can't be mad about it

Woman at the top
Why's the story so familiar
Something's got to drop
For this hombre to remain here

Chained, dream up some while she's trying
Trying to find something to wear
All you need is someone to say

Here we go
What's the mystery?
When everybody wants to know
About destiny

Are you ready for the use of time?

Waiting for you
It's a lonely business
What more can I do
I could be here until Christmas

Chained, one step over the line
Trying to get something to work
All I need is someone to say

After all
What's the mystery?
When everybody wants to know
About destiny
Just trying to kill a little time
What's the mystery?
'cause everybody wants to know
What's their destiny?
Are you ready for the use of time?
What's the mystery?
