about

It's in 7/4 time.

lyrics

A little bit further, a couple years earlier
We would have been fine
She's feeling mischievous; her face says it's devious
Should I show her mine

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."

The time that I'd take us, it can't help but make us
The worst kind of friends
It's not like we're strangers: the thrill of the danger
The means to her ends

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."

Then came the moment when I knew the time had come and gone
Once I realized it was you that wanted me all along
You wanted to show me
I still can't believe it - how hadn't I seen it?
It should have been me
When she leaned on the doorway, it was her kind of foreplay
I wish I had seen

And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."
And she said, "Wake up, Richard, it's time to go.
There's a couple things I want to show you.
Promise me you won't tell anybody else, now,
Wake up, Richard, it's time to go."
