Angie McMahon - Keeping Time Lyrics




Now I'm keeping time, or at least I'm learning how to
I'm taking flight or at least I'm just about to
No the ways we could bruise, aren't used to us
And all the things I burnt, I learnt their cost
No, there's cracks in me, all the cracks in me

I've been blessed by the ignition
Waiting for a command
Young girl tired of your wishing words, waiting...

It's done me harm
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
I've done me harm
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

I was sinking in to a lust like it was water
Always juggling something I could not afford to
But I want someone who doesn't mind it when I stand
I want someone who's funny looking when they dance
I wanna dance with him, I wanna dance with him

I've been blessed by the ignition
Waiting for a command
Young girl tired of your wishing words, waiting...

It's done me harm
I want the time to pass
So I'm speeding down the road
Oh I want the time to pass
So I can move on and swallow this
But I want the time to stop
So I don't have to grow

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ah, ah, ah

    [Verse 1]
    Now I'm keeping time, or at least I'm learning how to
    I'm taking flight or at least I'm just about to
    All the ways we can bruise are of use to us
    And all the things I have burnt, I have learnt their cost
    Oh, there's cracks in me, oh, the cracks in me

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I've been braced by the ignition
    Waiting for a command
    Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing and waiting

    [Chorus 1]
    Has done me harm (Ooh)
    I've done me harm (Ooh)

    [Verse 2]
    I was sinking in to a lust like it was water
    Always juggling something I could not afford to
    But I want someone who doesn't mind it when I stand
    I want someone who's funny looking when they dance
    I wanna dance with them, I wanna dance with them

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I've been braced by the ignition
    Waiting for a command
    Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing and waiting


    [Chorus 2]
    Has done me harm
    I want the time to pass
    So I'm speeding down the road
    Oh, I want the time to pass
    So I can move on and swallow this
    And God, I want the time to stop
    So I don't have to grow old

    [Outro]
    Ooh, ooh, ah
    Ooh, ooh, ah
    Ooh, ooh, ah
    Ooh, ooh, ah

    Incredible voice! Wow.

  5. Emack B

    Saw you yesterday at Hozier’s concert (I posted a video lol) and you are amazing! I’m 100% a fan now!

  6. Jaxon Shoe

    You are so amazing ❤️

  7. dickdesign007

    Beautiful song by an even more beautiful singer.

  8. Sara K

    Your music and voice remind me of female artists I listened to in the 90s.😊

  9. Ethan Dominguez

    Come to LA

  10. ally4775

    She reminds me of Beth Orton

  11. Old Salts

    I don’t think such beautiful vocals have come from a less opened mouth.

  12. KAFF’FX

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  13. dutch1171

    I think this is probably your best song to date. I'm a huge fan anyway, but this song just gets me every fuckin time... "I want the time to fly so I'm speeding down the road..." God damn, that line... Love it.

  14. Shawn Beckmann1

    What a Voice!

  15. derek melton

    I love your voice but I couldn't understand one word you said.

  16. Orange OwL

    Great music. The unique vocals and the steady beat with the guitar is simplistic and magnificent. Stripped down and awesome dirty dusty smokiness.

  17. Lorraine Bartels

    Thought it was Florance and the Machine until I looked up at the TV. Incredible Song and I will be looking for more from them.

    PAUL LANCASTER

    so did I!

  18. Seakem's fishing

    This is just uber cool music.

  19. siriuslili

    Amazing song. I hear the Chrissy Hynde/Pretenders influence. That’s meant as the best possible compliment, btw. Great work!

    Edro Septic

    I thought it was them when I first heard it.

  20. ludweed vondankenhoek

    I liked these guys when they were called the pretenders

  21. ludweed vondankenhoek

    sweet licks, legit rock

  22. SuperUzzle

    Just ordered "Salt" on Bandcamp. :)

  23. SuperUzzle

    Please return to 'Murica to play again!

  24. SuperUzzle

    LOVED this on the first listen! Amazing! <3 :)

  25. Cristo Rivas gonzalez

    Me encanto esta canción ♡

  26. Jonathan Arriaga Palacios

    Nice video, sis! You make me feel like if I were part of it ☺

  27. Edro Septic

    What a voice.

  28. Adam Chandler

    Wow, this is good!

  29. im bap

    Holey smokes! That's good.

  30. Schadowization Productions

    There is a work around to like a video twice: Just like it then write a comment with this content:
    I like it.

  31. IRG tap

    Great music

  32. DavidEric1414

    Love this song! Your voice and guitar playing is fantastic! The chord progression and build up is contagious!

  33. Angus Mullins

    Good song! Strong unique sounding female voice, gave me the tingles. One critique of the song however is the missed opportunity at the denouement to have her voice rise to a greater crescendo above the chord progression ala Florence and the Nightingales or PJ Harvey. Regardless, I haven’t been this impressed by a young group of Aussie musicians since hearing Boy & Bear back in 2011! Keep up the good work!

    Joshua Godwin

    Angus Mullins you should probably check out king gizzard and the lizard wizard

  34. Ducksquad

    This gonna blow up. You heard it here first.

    Ryan Sharp

    Ducksquad I’ve been listening to this song A LOT over past few days

  35. Seakem's fishing

  41. Doug Reynolds

    Amazing artist from down under. What a voice! Nice tip of the hat to Angus & Julia Stone by they way! Maybe a tour together????

  42. Core Viimeinen

    Incredible. How is this only at 61k views? I'm so, SO far from being a music expert, yet it is so obvious that this song is amazing, and this artist has talent. I feel fortunate that I heard this song on the radio not once, but twice!

  43. brettmcl

    Angie, you and your band are brilliant! My favorite song of the year so far.

  44. Bobby Guajardo

    I think I’m in love

  47. 84mira

  51. Curt Manners

    Songs like this are the reason I never turn my stereo off day or night. I mighta missed this bad boy. Then I plugs my Tele into my Rumble 100 and I plays along. I go by the name of Blind Mississippi White Boy Pigs Feet Dupree.

    Ron Lisk

    I hear a Tom Petty influence.

  60. Kauane de Moura

  61. Kirk Peffers

    She's as good a singer as Brandi Carlile, but most of her songs are too soft and introspective to match Brandi's.

    Chrissy Hines vibe
