Regina Spektor - The Clocks Were Asleep Lyrics



The clocks were asleep
And asleep's how we found them
We found them and wound them again
But they didn't last us till morning
A warning:
That you never should force mechanical things
They are not meant for hardship, they'll snap
If you tighten and wind them and pry them and try

Just stop right now
Now's the time to let go
And stop right now
Now's the time to break free

The parakeet sitting inside the gazebo
Was sighing though she shouldn't've known
How to do anything except tweet tweet tweet
The gentleman giving the Power presentation
Felt the bayonet scar on his shoulder
He opened a warm trickle of blood through his
Fresh-pressed shirt

So stop right now
Now's the time to let go
And stop right now
Now's the time to break free
Oh, oh
Free

How much do you really know you?

    Unfortunately the ending got cut off.

    There used to be this recording of this by Spektography but she got hacked and she's redone her channel as TheSpektography. I don't think she's put this one back up but she has ALOT.
