"It's been a long time coming" he said with a smile.
"You gotta think about the future once in a while
"Think about this as a business deal"

Oh don't blame Sally's bloodshot eyes
She's just a debutante hangin' with the overpaid rich guys
The moon tonight is like a piece of steel

No, it ain't easy
what you've been going through
Oh no, no one said it'd be easy
What you wanna to do?

You have to fight the fire but it doesn't come easy
It's hard to find the water when the well runs dry
Wait and watch the sky while you're looking for a reason
Time, time will tell you why

Oh she got lost on the killing floor
She wants to talk about the things we don't talk about anymore
Nosey neighbor lives down the hall
Oh Mrs. O'Malley's gettin' wise
She told the landlord she thought she heard the sound of a woman's voice cry
She listens through the bedroom wall, hey

No, it ain't easy
what you've been going through
Oh no, no one said it'd be easy
What you wanna to do?

You have to fight the fire but it doesn't come easy
It's hard to find the water when the well runs dry
Wait and watch the sky while you're looking for a reason
Time, time will tell you why

Oh she was found on the second floor
locked in the closet with the claw marks on the door
None of the neighbors heard a sound at all
Oh Mrs. O'Malley's up and died
They found the landlord floating in the river on the lower east side
He liked to listen through the bedroom wall, hey

No, it ain't easy
what you've been going through
Oh no, no one said it'd be easy
What you wanna to do?

You have to fight the fire but it doesn't come easy
It's hard to find the water when the well runs dry
Wait and watch the sky while you're looking for a reason
Time, time will tell
You've got to fight the fire but it doesn't come easy
It's hard to find the water when the well runs dry
Wait and watch the sky while you're looking for a reason
Time, time, time
Time will tell you
Why
