Lyrics

Time after time the hands on my watch spin around
And I know that I've been around
But I'm coming home now baby

Time after time when I know you've been waiting up for me
Just pacing and shaking up for me
Your anger in proportion to your love

Sparrows fly up easy, startling
Lovers in the peaceful night
I love the angry way you say to me
"Where have you been all night?"
Standing in your red pyjamas

Time after time when we've come through the dark of the night
And by sunrise everything's right
I'm coming home now baby

Time after time when I know you've got stressed up about me
I secretly hope you'll get dressed up and shout me
The colour and dimension of your love

Sparrows fly up easy, startling
Lovers in the peaceful night
I love the angry way you say to me
"Where have you been all night?"
Naked in your red pyjamas
