ALL I GOT

(Richardson)

 

Did you ever see a goddess go

Did you ever see her tumble down
Did you ever let her break your heart

And then watch her get her own thrown round


 Did you ever see her walk away

Run stumblin' in her mother's shoes

Did you sigh and turn your face away

And long to hold her like lovers do…
 
Did she ever try to shut your mouth
When you said it was a crying shame
Did your fingers tell her not to go
Pressed flat against a window pane

 

Did you ever give away your soul
To have it ground down under her high heel
Did you ever cut a heart of stone
Just to see if that stone could feel, well

 

I know she's gonna be alone again

[So I’ll just bide my time]
 I know she's spinnin' out of control again
[Into these arms of mine]

I know that baby’s comin’ home again
[And that's just fine, 'cause]

Without her All I Got is time

 

Did you ever see the pouring rain
Runnin' steady from her undone hair
Did you ever catch it in your palm
And tell her that you'd always keep it there

 

And did you hear every gossip tongue

And fat slander in a beggar’s mouth

Talk about her like she’s come undone

Talk about her like she’s nothing worth, well

 

 

 

 



I know she's gonna be alone again

[So I’ll just bide my time]
I know she's spinnin' out of control again

[Into these arms of mine]

I know that baby’s comin’ home again

[And that's just fine, 'cause]

Without her All I Got is time…

 

[Time] does nothing to end the scent of her perfume

Or the way that her smile seems to light up the room
As she’s carelessly combing her hair, oooh

[Time] the moons wax and wane as the day turns to night

And the pleasure to pain as she stays out of sight,

Though she still seems to be everywhere

Oh, but I know the truth and I can’t be fooled

She cries for her youth,

Her heart wants the best for me, beats in her breast for me

 

I know this world, and it’s constantly changing

But one thing stays the same and it’s love…

 

I know she's gonna be alone again

[So I’ll just bide my time]

I know she's spinnin' out of control again

[Into these arms of mine]

I know that baby’s comin’ home again

[And that's just fine, 'cause]

Without her All I Got is time [time, time]

 

Yeah, without her, All I Got is time…
