Time is the healer, time was on my hands
The bus stopped at tiffany's
So i went to hear the band
I saw Cinderella, then the curtain dropped
Time hung heavy on my hands but today
The clock just stopped

I heard the music saw those pictures on the wall
I fell in love with tiffany's i thought it said it all
Soothed by your saxophones i thought you'd understand
I'd love to sing my songs for you but i don't know if i can
Said don't know if i can, don't know if i can

Midnight is striking there's a pumpkin by the door
It's five o'clock and the streets are clear am i alone once more ?
I watched the dawn in an electric storm my compass blew haywire
There she stands with a slipper in her hand
And her eyes were the colour of fire

I saw you crying from that doorway for sometime
It's no use drying your eyes ''cause i see those tell tale signs
I saw you crying from that doorway for sometime
It's no use drying your eyes ''cause i see those tell tale signs
I see those tell tale signs, i see those tell tale signs

Time is no healer in truth she plays no part
When money's got you in your pocket where can she put your heart ?
She led a charmed life so i believe
Before she left she wrote a note and this is how it reads

I saw you crying from that doorway for sometime
It's no use drying your eyes ''cause i see those tell tale signs
I saw you crying from that doorway for sometime
It's no use drying your eyes ''cause i see those tell tale signs
I see those tell tale signs, i see those tell tale signs
