WE DIDN'T HAVE TIME

I wanna know what keeps you awake at night
And I wanna know the things that you think are wrong and you think are right
I wanna know your favourite record
I wanna know what makes you smile



We didn’t have time to do the things I wanted to do
We didn’t have time for me to get to know you



I wanna know the movies that made you cry
I wanna know the moments that bring you down or that get you high
I wanna know your favourite perfume
I wanna know whose clothes you wear


We didn’t have time to do the things I wanted to do
We didn’t have time for me to get to know you
We didn’t have the time to do the things I wanted to do
We didn’t have time for me to get to know you



Now I love what I see
But what’s underneath
I’ve got to find what’s behind this beautiful smile

I wanna know what makes you feel like a woman
I wanna know the places and things that make you feel alive
I wanna know your favourite moment
I wanna know if I was there


We didn’t have time to do the things I wanted to do
We didn’t have time for me to get to know you
We didn’t have the time to do the things I wanted to do
We didn’t have time for me to get to know you, know you
