    Time and all you gave
    I was the jerk who preferred the sea
    to tussling in the waves
    tugging your skirt, singing please, please, please

    But now I see love
    tracked on the floor where you walked outside
    now I see love
    looking for you in this other girl's eyes

    Time and all you took
    only my freedom to fuck the whole world
    promising not to look
    promising light on the sidewalk girls

    But now I see love
    there in your car where we said those things
    now I see love
    tugging your skirt singing please, please, please

    Time and all you gave
    there on your cross that I never saw
    well beyond the waves
    dunking my head when I heard you call

    But now I see love
    there in the scab where you pinched my leg
    now I see love
    there on your side of my empty bed
