  • Timothy, I took your place
    Timothy, 'cause it's such a waste
    Timothy, we found your spaceship
    Timothy, it's the farthest you've ever flown

    Never used your head
    To find out what this whole thing meant

    It's not what it seems
    But it is
    Timothy where have you been?
    Timothy where have you been?

    Timothy, where did you go?
    Timothy, the boy can throw
    Timothy, we found your spaceship
    Timothy, did it hurt when you hit the ground

    Never used your legs
    To walk â??round in this whole big mess

    It's not what it seems
    But it is
    Timothy where have you been?
    She cried in the kitchen
    To let you go
    Timothy where have you been?

    Missed your photo
    Missed your birthday too
    Missed your photo

    It's not what is seems
    But it is
    Timothy where have you been?
    She cried in the kitchen
    To let you go
    Timothy where have you been?

    Missed your photo
    Missed your birthday too
    Missed your photo
    Missed your birthday too. Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER CESTER

  • K from Nowhere, OnActually, in Sexy Sadie, it says, "What have you done?" But true, it's far from coincidence, seeing as Paul had a song called Jet...
  • Laura from Bham, United KingdomThis song is so awesome. One of my mates is in the same situation as Cam... I should write a song for them.

    I love the whole Get Born album.... fantastic.
  • Dawson from Draper, UtI love this song. I think that it is about Cameron Muncey thinkng about what his brother would be like if he was alive. I love Jet, they are one of my favorite bands. Their best songs are Rip It Up from Shine On and Cold Hard Bi**h from Get Born.
  • Jess from London , EnglandTimothy is one of the best songs ever, it makes me strangly happy when I hear it.
    Jonah- London
  • Angelica from Charlotte, NcTimothy is one of my favorite Jet songs. has anyone noticed the Jet song, Look what you've done, has the exact same lyric line in it as the beatles' Sexy Sadie. They both say "look what you've done you've made a fool of everyone."
  • Connor from New Canaan, DcJet is awesome. I cant help it, i just love their music. Lazy Gun is definitley the best. i sing that song so loud sometimes when no one is around and it makes me feel awesome!!!!!
