about

(Snyder/Savarino)

lyrics

There’s a certain funny way
Your voice cracks
I’ve taken up speakin’
Kind of like that
And though I’m missing you now and the future’s unknown
I’m determined
To hang onto this world
To see if we could become something
Though it makes me weary

I try to be so careful
I try to do it just right
But I’ve got a burning question
How to make you mine
Can I get the timing right
Can I get the timing right
Will I get the timing right now
Will I get the timing right

And yet you sit there in your park
Without a clue
Of what you’ve done to my life
Or that I’m sitting beside you
And as you smoke your sweet cigar
And think things through
Your smoke twirls in the air
And I try to figure out what to do

But will I get the timing right
If I see you there tonight
Will I get timing right now
Will I get the timing right
