Dirty Projectors – What Is The Time lyrics
[Verse 1]
Leave the spoon-fed champions
Leave the lamp lit prose
Leave the endlessly distracting matinées
And say hello
Hello
Hello

[Chorus]
What is the time when I can call you by your name?
I don't know why it's been so long
Alone, imagining nobody
Once in a while, well
I guess the planets align
And show me the one I am
I am the one who would love you
Seek the dusty loan shark

[Verse 2]
On the last frontier
Join the modern miracle that looks flat
But reveals itself a sphere
As the wheel of inception steered years

[Chorus]
What is the time when I can call you by your name?
I don't know why it's been so long
Alone, imagining nobody
Once in a while, well
I guess the planets align
And show me the one I am
I am the one who would love you

[Bridge]
They say it's ashes to ashes
Passion is passing
And we all will die alone [?]
But while we're here on the planet
Dancing on prairie
Why do we drink all to [?] and [?]?

[Chorus]
What is the time when I can call you by your name?
I don't know why it's been so long
Alone, imagining nobody
Once in a while, well
I guess the planets align
And show me the one I am
I am the one who would love you

[Outro]
What is the time when I can call you by your name?
I don't know why it's been so long
Alone, imagining nobody
Once in a while, well
I guess the planets align
And show me the one I am
I am the one who would love you
