    Lyrics

    I am a clock without hands
    I'm walking through the midnights
    Counting all the moments of the loves I've left behind
    Crying on the shoulders of the days, I've not forgotten now

    I am frozen in time like the battles of the soldiers
    Left displaced of time where their tears still fall
    Loves that wreck out on the track
    Far beyond my looking back to recall
    I'm just a clock upon the shelf
    Without hands to give the time of day for love at all

    And I am a clock without hands, no one understands this
    That when the autumn comes I see no reason for a fall
    Spring can fall to move me with it's tulips and it's clover
    Now the time for love is over
    I am a clock without hands
    I'm just tickin' and that's all
    I am a clock without hands
    I'm just tickin' and that's all

    I recall a time, when love still had the power
    To reach inside this clock
    Where my hands held a dream
    The innocence of passion and the words of St. Teresa chiming in

    And I recall the faith of the love of my life
    And the loosing of my hands
    Which he took with him when he died
    And I'm crying on the shoulders of his love that I'm remembering now
    And it's been ages since this heart has ticked a beat of love
    So I've forgotten how

    And I am a clock without hands, no one understands this
    That when the autumn comes I see no reason for a fall
    Spring can fall to move me with it's tulips and it's clover
    Now the time for love is over
    I am a clock without hands
    I'm just tickin' and that's all
    I am a clock without hands
    I'm just tickin' and that's all

    I am a clock without hands
    I'm just tickin' and that's all
