James Blunt

"Stop the Clock"

[Intro]
Mmm, mmm, whoa-oh, mmm
Mmm, mmm, whoa-oh

[Verse 1]
Did it take you a minute to realize that I’m deep in it?
‘Cause it feels like hours, I’ve been stuck here thinking
I get down, down on my knees, begging, begging, "Please"
Every single prayer’s wasted in the air

[Chorus]
(Hey!)
It’s like the hands of time (Woah-oh)
Are putting handcuffs on mine (Woah-oh)
And nothin' about this is holy
It’s just killing me, killing me slowly
And I’m not ready yet (Woah-oh)
But I’m runnin' out of breath (Woah-oh)
And all I can do is watch
‘Cause I can’t find no way to stop the clock

[Refrain]
Mmm, mmm, whoa-oh, mmm
Mmm, mmm, whoa-oh

[Verse 2]
I hear that long black train, it's runnin' outta track
And I’m no coward but right now, I've got no power
So no more "you and me", we all get eulogies
But most of them, I swear, are wasted in the air

[Chorus]
(Hey!)
It’s like the hands of time (Woah-oh)
Are putting handcuffs on mine (Woah-oh)
And nothin' about this is holy
It’s just killing me, killing me slowly
And I’m not ready yet (Woah-oh)
But I’m runnin' out of breath (Woah-oh)
And all I can do is watch
‘Cause I can’t find a way

[Bridge]
I can’t find a way to stop the hourglass now (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Sand just slips away and life goes way too fast

[Chorus]
(Hey!)
It’s like the hands of time (Keep taking away from me)
Are putting put handcuffs on mine (They’ll never set me free)
And nothin' about this is holy
It’s just killing me, killing me slowly
And I’m not ready yet (I don’t want you to leave)
But I’m runnin' out of breath (One step ahead of me)
And all I can do is watch
But I can’t find a way to stop the clock
