​A Matter Of Time

This song is by Spandau Ballet and appears on the album Heart Like A Sky (1989).

He lays alone cries on his own
For horizons that he'll never reach
And all of those dreams are washed on the beach

She's drowning in oceans of shackled emotions
Going round and around in her head
While out on the streets people forget

That it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want

She speaks of hoping, he speaks of fighting
And tells her that they will come through
'Cause he wants to feel the shock of the new

People that hurt you and they burn you
With acid the falls that falls from the sky
And out of the silence your voice says why?

If it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want

It's a matter of time, a matter of time
But you're asking why, oh, life makes you cry?
Turn moss into roses and blood into wine

It's a matter of time, a matter of time
But all of your past still plays on your mind
And maybe tomorrow you'll live by design
It's a matter of time

This isn't giving this isn't living
Ooh, just days that pull you apart
And tears turn to rust that fall on still hearts

So swallow your maybes and cradle your babies
Tell them that they will come through
Their gonna feel the shock of the new

And if it's love you want
Love you want
Love you want

It's a matter of time, a matter of time
But you're asking why, oh, life makes you cry?
Turn moss into roses and blood into wine

It's a matter of time, a matter of time
But all of your past still plays on your mind
And maybe tomorrow you'll live by design
It's a matter of time

A matter of time, a matter of time
A matter of time, a matter of time

A matter of time, a matter of time
A matter of time, a matter of time
