Uptown, going down, old life line, walking down faster, walking with the master of time.
My lady woke up, she broke down, she got up, she let go,
Take me Timer, shake me Timer, let it blow, let it blow.

My darling friends, oh, I belong to Timer, he changed my face.
You're a fine one Timer, you've got me walking through the gates of space.
I keep remembering indoors that I used to walk through,
Baby, I'm not trying to talk you down.
But I could walk through them doors onto a pleasure ground.
It was sweet and funny, a pleasure ground.
Didn't know about money, did not know about Timer, did not know about Timer.

Holding to my cradle at the start but now my hand is open
And now my hand is ready for my heart.
So let the wind blow Timer, I like her song.
And if the song goes minor, I won't mind.
And Timer knows the lady's gonna love again.
Time says the lady rambles never more.
If you love me true, I'll spend my life with you and Timer.
You're a jigsaw Timer, God is a jigsaw souling with, souling.
You're a jigsaw Timer, God is a jigsaw souling with, souling with Timer, Timer…

    Timer is more Laura's feelings about love than the passage of time, e.g., "But now my hand is open and now my hand is ready for my heart."
    The song repeatedly identified or was spoken to her lover.

    Who is "My lady woke up, and she broke down, she got up, she let go"?
    What is "Baby I'm not trying to talk you down" about? Along with the above lyric, does this suggest a lovers' falling out?
    Who is the muse for "I like her song - and if the song goes minor - I won't mind"?
    Who is being put on notice in these lyrical ultimatums? "And Timer knows the lady's Gonna love again - if you don't love me" and "The lady rambles never more- if you love me true," (An allusion to the reason for the tiff?), and "If you love me true - I'll spend my life with you - you and Timer"?
    Is she the inspiration for "Emmie"? The beloved Laura sings to in the Sapphic reverie, "Désiree" covered on "Gonna Take a Miracle". Is it the young woman, Laura is poised to kiss in the silhouetted picture on the back cover of the vinyl album jacket of "Eli and the Thirteenth Confession"? It is not her "flame" Maria Desiderio.
    The picture is worth 1,000 confessions. A rendering of the picture is on-line Google images Laura Nyro popmatters.
