Why do you love Tom Waits

Time German translation
of Tom Waits

Time Lyrics translation

The odds are on Harlow and the moon is shining on the road
And the shadow boys break all laws
And you're east of East St. Louis and the wind whispers whole lectures
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
And Napoleon is crying in a carnival bar
His invisible fiancée is in the mirror
And the band goes 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 are orphans and their memories are like a train
You can see how it gets smaller when it drives off
And the things that you can't remember
tell the things you can't forget
that the story places a saint in every dream


She said she would stay there until the bandage came off
But those mothers' boys just don't know when to stop
And Mathilda asks the sailors "are these dreams or are these prayers?"
So close your eyes my son, this won't hurt a bit

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

The situation is pretty bad for a pin-up girl
The guys jump right off the cars and clap in the street
And when they have a run, she pulls a razor blade out of her boot
And a thousand pigeons fall around their feet
So put a candle in the window and kiss him on the lips
While the bowl in front of the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay off the minstrel until I come back

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
