Lyrics

A silver moon hangs over the city

And it's so full it spills down to the street

Slips off the trees, down into the gutter

Where at last it washes over me

 

Don't stay the hands of time

Leave them ticking away

Baby, you've done the crime

But I'm the one whose paid

Gave it all I could, couldn't give enough

You left me here, serving life without love

 

Couples I see serve only to remind me

As I move along the avenue

That I drift alone on a sea of strangers

Where the waves come rushing two by two

 

Don't stay the hands of time

Leave them ticking away

Baby, you've done the crime

But I'm the one whose paid

Gave it all I could, couldn't give enough

You left me here, serving life without love

 

Friends say, "You'll get through"

That, "time heals all wounds"

But it's just not true

 

Don't stay the hands of time

Leave them ticking away

Baby, you've done the crime

But I'm the one whose paid

Gave it all I could, couldn't give enough

And I'm still here Doing life without love
