Fine Frenzy, A - Borrowed Time Lyrics

Thick as thieves the last of leaves
In the winter sun
Holding fast this freezing branch
Is home to us

Step, step right over the line
And onto borrowed time
When it's life, not waiting to die
Waiting to divide to divide

Counting stars and passing cars
On the interstate
The end is near I feel it dear,
But I am not afraid

Step, step right over the line
And onto borrowed time
When it's life, not waiting to die
Waiting to divide to divide

But you say you're getting tired
You're tired and so am I
When you follow from behind

Step, step right over the line
And onto borrowed time
When it's life, not waiting to die
Waiting to divide to divide

But you say you're getting tired
You're tired and so am I
When you follow from behind

    Miss Queenie from fantastic beasts..😊

  2. Lon W.

    Nice voice. Am listening with the vid behind what I am working on.

  3. HalloMoose

    some how i like her sadder songs than her happy songs...


    Agreed. Funny enough I feel that way about Jewel too. She's got great depth of soul.

  4. zububur

    Nice song, but that's a terrible audio quality!  (It's in mono and in a bad bitrate probably)

  5. wellandany

    Love her always

  6. mebs au

    Its about being prepared to let something (or someone) go. If you're not ready, you "step over the line, and onto borrowed time" and you're just wasting your life when you should have already moved on because time has passed.

  7. Cliffie Jackson

    Really does have an amazing voice.

  8. Jimmy Mcdonald

  10. Austin Swick

    I don't understand the meaning of this song...

  11. Sleepy Cheshire

  25. usernforce

    This is my favourite song of her's. Vocally, it's her best work.

  26. Sophie Rickard

    the lyrics that are written in these songs show great meaning; great emotion and her deep yet wonderful voice tells the story perfectly especially in alomost lover, ashes and wine, near to you and this song. this is what we call music not all the shit on the charts.

  27. Dave Keane

    i fucking love this womans voice.

  28. Brianna Jenkins

    @aosvaldo19 haha yeah & wut i say is my opinion so obviously ur jus an obnoxious hypocrite :)

  29. aosvaldo19

    @crazzibri You're obviously someone who disregards other people's opinions. As if I haven't seen that comment already; very original buddy.

  30. Ashton Jordan

    @girlz110 because people don't want to take the time to listen and "figure out" this kind of music. Music that actually says something and has real substance. they would rather listen to brainless, mindless music that I personally feel anyone could write. I don't listen to mainstream music because I personally think its dumb. I like *this* kind of music because its good, she can actually sing, and shes a good writer. i really don't want to offend anyone, but thats my opinion.

  31. Ashton Jordan

    wow. there are six people who missed the like button. too bad. mouse must have slipped :)

  32. Brianna Jenkins

    yth is there 6 dislikes ?! -.- they must be deaf

  33. fairyvivi18

  34. Μαρια Γεωργιάδου

    @girlz110 because the really talented ones dont seek fame :)

  35. MagicalZayz

    Loving that lovely accompaniment, partic. the guitar (or whatever related instrument it is) - and of course Alison's insightful, quaintly poetic lyrics delivered in that sweet voice of hers. ♥

  50. kendle rock

    Her hair is as amazing as her voice.

  51. LondonHarrods

    This song is awesome!

  52. IWasHereMomentsAgo

    I'd say it was about growing up about growing up and really living your life, not just hanging around 'waiting to die,' but whilst also being sad you're leaving your childhood behind.

    But that's the beauty with songs like this, songs that don't spell it out for you, everyone can have their on interpretation which means something personal to them.

  53. musiQFreak02

    yea, this played on both the hills and the city. her songs are popular on these two shows.

  54. Sez Bez

    First episode of the city.. first few songs of the episode.

  55. bonjourMELL

    when was it on the city? i watch every episode and i don't remember hearing it!

    this is such a beautiful song though. love her!

  56. KyleAgs

    her songs are so amazing - her voice is really unique and her lyrics are beautifully written!

  57. Jóna Þóra Friðriksdóttir

  58. Macy Hong

  61. theSOUNDinterpreter

  62. Kayla Bryant

    hahah, how ironic.
