Lyrics


Oh, calm down, make it easier on me
Cause when we fight it's simple just to hurt each other when we're weak
All those years together playing out this tragedy
Where we fall, a curtain falls 

I'm making up
I'm making up time 
Making up time
Making up time
I'm making up
I'm making up time
Making up time 
Making up time
I'm making up

Stare me down with stoic disbelief
I'd rather hear you scream than wear the silence that you weave
Time has stopped since the day I ripped the hands from my watch
She loves me, I love her not 

I'm making up
I'm making up time 
Making up time
Making up time 
I'm making up
I'm making up time
Making up time 
Making up time 
I'm making up

What love once healed
Now it has killed
I've got no plans
Catch as catch can

I'm making up time 
Making up time
Making up time 

What once was is not now and may never be
The same old coward who loved you wants to leave you
But he's seen your dress tear
Your body tethered to this midnight saraban
And he dreamed and he danced

I'm making up
I'm making up time 
Making up time
Making up time 
I'm making up
I'm making up time
Making up time 
Making up time 
I'm making up
