Some other versions of "Standby"

It's these few moments, it's these few moments
With too many seconds
It's these few moments
Take these day students you'll find in their hands
That it's all laid out with little to plan
Arrive with a taste and stay with a burn
You've come to go now you're stuck with no turn

Times before the time was short
The points of check a reason to hurt
Times before the time was short
The points of check a reason to hurt

Notice the others as they notice later
So many now with so much in common
Together we lose as soon as we choose
To allow the time to stink our clothes
Maybe we've found a new link in the chain
Or maybe we love each other the same
The instance it shuts we're closed within
We would kill each oter
Just to hear our own name

To play along when you are the one
Who gave birth to the new version
Turn down the speed, no need to breathe
You'll soon forget the you that came to leave
