The Clock

This song is by The Go-Betweens and appears on the album The Friends of Rachel Worth (2000).

Candles and tambourines shine in the dusk
Monkees and Spoonful float through the musk
Why, when you come here, does the rainbow turn black?
Spitting and burning, the vision attacks
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou

Ghosts from the river beg to get in
Staining my windows with pictures of sin
Sometimes the nighttime steals all your light
Then in the morning, the birds lift and fly
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou

Why, when you come here, does the rainbow turn black?
Spitting and burning, the vision attacks
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou
But then the clock turns
And it's now
And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou

And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou

And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou

And it's you-ou-ou-ou, ou-ou
