This song is performed by Regina Spektor and appears on the album 11:11 (2001).
He was a husband who drove his wife home drunk from the parties
He was a husband who drove his wife home
And in the car, he would lean her head gently against the side-door window
And in the bathroom, he would hold her hair back and hope

Saying, oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Ohh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
So tall these days

And in the morning, she'd wake up and
Crouch recollections all day, but
She would always, always wake up the next morning
He'd take one look at her and say,
"oh oh, it's okay"
And her conscience would issue yet another last warning

Saying, oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Ohh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
So tall these days

And she would ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she would beg for time
And she'd beg for time
And call it a gift
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift...

Sifts through it's sift
Just sifts through its sift
Oh...
Sifts through its sift
Just sifts through its sift

When we had coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee
And coffee and coffee some more
He'd go to work, and she'd take a sick day and rot at the core
And by the time he came back, she'd scrubbed the bathrooms and made them smell like pine
It would be almost as if nothing had happened
And he'd give her time, oh,
oh, and he'd give her time

Saying, oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, don't they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
Oh, they build buildings
So tall these days

And she would ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she'd ask for time
She'd beg for time
And she would beg for time
And she'd beg for time
And call it a gift
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
And he'd give her time
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift...

Oh, sifts through its sift
Sifts through its sift
Ohhh-oo-ooooh
Oh, sifts through its sift
Sifts through its sift

He was a husband
Drove, Time
Home, Time
Car, oh, core
Core sick day
Pour coffee
Core warning
Last warning
He was a husband
Time, Pine
Scrub, Scrub
Bathroom, Lean
Hair, Back
Car, Window
Hope, Time Give
Don't they
Build buildings
Tall these days
