Uriah Heep – Playing For Time lyrics

Travel down the road of heartache
Hear an echo in my mind
I've played with fire
Burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time
You don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel ? it's getting close to comfort
Why you makin' such a fuss?

Take your time with
What you're doin'
And you'll see the skies appear
Seen and heard it all before her
Now you understand my fear
Can't you see the time will tell us
How it's gonna always be
You can wrap me
Around your finger
And I ain't no mystery

Playing for time
That's all I can do
I'm playing for time
Before I fall in love with you

You can push me every which way
Hey I got no place to fall
Guess you're gonna rue your bullshit
When your back's against the wall
Louder now that's what the games go ?
And I bought the devil now ?
You can get to dream about it
I won't need one anyhow

Playing for time
That's all I can do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love
Playing for time
That's all I want to do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love

Oh, you don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel it's getting close for comfort
Why you making such a fuss?
Travel down the road of heartache
Hear an echo my mind
Played with fire, burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time

Playing for time
Before I fall in love with you
Playing for time
That's all I want to do
Playing for time
Before I fall
Playing for time
All I want to do
Playing for time
