You said you'd be here at a quarter to five I didn't know if you were dead or alive How long d'you think that I could sharpen my knife I've got better things to do with my life
It's almost the deadline Don't miss the deadline, darling When all your bad dreams will come true Don't miss the deadline It's almost the deadline, darling I wouldn't want it to happen to you
Bill screamed at him, and he hung up the phone I wonder if he ever felt more alone He never finished his coffee that night The ? oh! Dave, it was a terrible sight
He missed the deadline He passed the deadline, darling And I believe that somehow he knew He crossed the deadline He passed the deadline, darling There wasn't a thing anybody could do
Listen my darling, now, don't play with fire You find a way to balance hate and desire
It's almost the deadline Don't miss the deadline darling Consequences are easily misconstrued Don't miss the deadline It's almost the deadline, darling I couldn't live if it happened to you

Nedkelly from Sydney, AustraliaThis is a very underrated B.O.C. tune if I ever heard one ! I hear a 'darker more sinister' msg in between the lines of the lyrics...something I can't quite pinpoint, but it feels uncanny. Love it !!
Paul from Rothesay, Nb, NbWhile BOC could rock yer socks off, this tune was also proof of the band's pop sensibility.
