You said buying time is useless
When all of the loose ends
Get you tied up in knots
It isn't a question
But more a suggestion
That you're supposed to move on

If apathy befalls you
And nobody calls you
To see if your heart is alright
The operation will end the frustration
Removing the blinders to fly

That we didn't see the problems
Up until the point that we solved them
Maybe if we hadn't looked out on the ocean
We wouldn't have fallen in
Now there's a letter on the shelf,
Baby you need time for yourself
I'll give it to you
All the rest seems to logically follow

So when your station calls you
Please don't let me stall you
Inside I was always prepared
'Cause when we're together,
In rainier weather,
Clouds made our vision impaired

So we didn't see the problems
Up until the point that we solved them
Maybe if we hadn't looked out on the ocean
It wouldn't have parted, oh
And now the letter on the shelf says
Baby you need time for yourself
I'll give it to you
Don't remember how all of it started

No, we didn't see the problems
Up until the point that we solved them
Maybe if we hadn't looked out on the ocean
We wouldn't have fallen in
Now there's a letter on the shelf,
Baby you need time for yourself
I'll give it to you
Yeah, the rest seems to logically follow, oh oh
