watch the clock, drive round the block, try anything I can
to keep my mind on stuff that isn’t you, and isn’t him
but it’s like a different time zone when I cross that line,
you know I lose an hour every time…
it’s nice to see you, how you been since our little mess?
and he’s worked out? then there’s no doubt it turned out for the best
and now I get to shake his hand, oh, no, the pleasure’s mine
+++ showin’ up and growin’ up, always been right on time
+++ no complaints or worries, I feel fine, just fine
but it’s like a different time zone, and I get way behind,
‘cause I lose an hour every time…

you once said I should fight for you, but that goes way too far
if I wanna get my ass kicked I’ll hang out in some cheap bar,
and tell your nearest boyfriend ‘bout the days when you were mine
and lose an hour every time
+++ showin’ up and growin’ up, always been right on time
+++ no complaints or worries, I feel fine, just fine
and I’ll start a stamp collection, just to stimulate my mind,
lose an hour, lose an hour every time…

this world’s got 2 hemispheres most any way it’s sliced,
don’t know ‘bout you, but as for me, well, one side would suffice,
so let’s flip a coin and give him one half, you could stay in mine..
+++ showin’ up and growin’ up, always been right on time
+++ no complaints or worries, I feel fine, just fine
and I’d love to tell you how I feel, but those words wouldn’t rhyme,
lose an hour, lose an hour, lose an hour every time…
