Precious Time

I don’t want to argue about who was the victim
‘cause maybe we both got burned
I don’t want to talk about who was the traitor
‘cause both of our loyalties turned
I don’t want to fight about who was the liar
‘cause there’s too many ways to lie
I don’t want to hear about who was the winner
‘cause we both know it’s a tie

Cut it out, drop it
Count me out, stop it

CHORUS:
Life is too short, why waste precious time?
Life is too short, why waste precious time?

You were on a liquid diet,
you were sure you had to try it
and you lost all your pounds
The doctor was on vacation,
so you took the medication
and wound up in lost and found

So we took that trip to Paris
‘Cause you swore that it would scare us
Out of our swift decline
All that I remember
About the days in that September
Is the mercy in the wine

Cut it out, drop it
Count me out, baby, stop it

REPEAT CHORUS

You talk on the telephone,
Long distance to New York or Rome
Some would say you’ve got it made
Your home is like a fortress,
No one comes in but the florist,
The gardener and the maid

You call me on the telephone,
You say you feel so alone,
But too tired to get dressed and get out
First you’re happy, then you’re sad,
Somehow you always hang up mad
Excuse me if I shout!

Cut it out, drop it
Count me out, baby, stop it

REPEAT CHORUS
