Precious Time Lyrics

Artist: Joe Jackson
Album: Big World

A million tiny lights are strung across the western sky
They burn to light our mission
But it's just a million lonely hearts
Strung out from never asking why
We burn with blind ambition

I heard somebody say
I don't regret my wedding day
But something's wrong
It's not the same
I'm lonely and I'd start again
If I had the time
Precious time

But I don't ask much
Just to keep in touch
And waste a little of your precious time
Waste a little of your precious time

A million dollars never justified a million lies
To jockey for position
And if two hearts can't beat as one
How can a million souls survive
In this world of suspicion

I heard somebody say
I dream about my wedding day
Through lonely nights
I dream of you
A lover though a friend would do
I'd find him if I had the time
Precious time

But I don't ask much
Just to keep in touch
And waste a little of your precious time
Waste a little of your precious time

And just a smile's enough
Just some of that human stuff
And waste a little of your precious time
Precious time
