Your eyes stick out in your head
Make me believe it
You don't need it, you don't need it
You already know

In time with time
In the meantime
You can leave it
Or not believe it
You're already here

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

But in the middle of the ocean (home sweet home)

Things don't appear this way
To speak of love, devotion and dying
First, you must realize
And man, can you spare the pain?

And in the heat of your emotions
Everything leads me to stay (stay and tell your tale)
Build a house on higher ground
Man, help me make the change
And man can we spare the change

Wear your hair long
Sing a love song
Don't you believe it
You don't need it
You already know

In time with time
In the meantime
You can leave it
Or not believe it
You're already here.
