Joan Armatrading – Killing Time lyrics

When you're pleasure seeking
I'm left killing time

It's a homicide
A ritual
Don't treat a human like that

You're very smart
You ignite my flame
After all is said and done
Baby you're the only one

I don't get jealous
But when you say you love me
I only half believe
But baby
I could never leave

Right now is all I want
Right here
Here is where you belong
With me
As long as you stay
With me
You'll see
I'm real good company

Sleight of hand
The way you play your tricks

You cheat on me
All the time
But I turn my back
Cos we had
Good times

Here is where you belong
With me
As long as you stay
With me
You'll see
I'm real good company
