  • I can't believe it
    It happens each day
    It's ill-conceived
    Just throw it away
    To watch the waiting time, slipping away
    It won't be long now
    I hold the moment
    The hour is sublime
    It's hard believing
    Dancing with time

    To watch the waiting time slipping away
    It won't be long now
    Down at the landing when the boats come in
    People stand in line
    Close by the water where the fishes swim

    'Round and 'round to pass the time
    But you know it's gonna get there
    Around and around it's gonna spin
    Out at the airport where the planes come in
    People buzzing like flies
    Out at the airport where the planes come in

    See the hours go flashing by
    But you know it's gonna get there
    Around and around it's gonna spin
    Down at the station where the trains come in
    Never make it on time
    Down at the station where the trains come in

    See my friends all walk the line
    But you know they're gonna get there
    Around and around they're gonna spin
    View it all with suspicion,
    Wiew it all and despise
    View it all with suspicion
    Wiew it all with my eyes Writer/s: JEZZ WOODROFFE, ROBERT BLUNT, ROBERT PLANT
