Painted over the walls

The saddest colour of blue

Posters covered in glass

Favorite curbside grab
Red Valentine's card

Record player made of tubes
Stuck on the mirror to keep

Spinning Tommy by The Who

There's no time to waste

There's no time to wait

Keys on the hook by the door

For the truck sold years ago

Standing guitars in the case
Filling up closet space
Vintage 40's wardrobe

Pink Emerson radio

Old lace dress I bought in the store
Motorcycle boots on the floor

There's no time to waste

There's no time to wait

Sirens up on the street

Smoke is burning my eyes

And the neighbours are screaming at me
I can only carry one thing

I can only carry one thing

There's no time to waste

There's no time to wait
