Time - Tom Waits

Tom Waits - Time, from the 1985 album 'Rain Dogs'. 
Backing video taken from a live performance on the 1988 film 'Big Time'. 

Lyrics: 

Well the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street 
And the shadow boys are breaking all the laws 
And you're east of East Saint Louis and the wind is making speeches 
And the rain sounds like a round of applause 
And Napoleon is weeping in a carnival saloon 
His invisible fiancee's in the mirror 
And the band is going home, it's raining hammers, it's raining nails 
And it's true there's nothing left for him down here 

 And it's time time time, and it's time time time 
And it's time time time that you love 
And it's time time time 

 And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train 
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away 
And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget 
That history puts a saint in every dream 
Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off 
But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit 
And Mathilda asks the sailors "Are those dreams or are those prayers?" 
So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit 
Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time 
And it's time time time that you love 
And it's time time time 

Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl 
The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street 
And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot 
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet 
So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips 
As the dish outside the window fills with rain 
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart 
And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again 
Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time 
And it's time time time that you love 
And it's time time time And it's time time time, and it's time time time 
And it's time time time that you love 
And it's time time time
