Story Behind the Song

The anger and confusion that comes at the end of a relationship when communication has broken down and you hold on too long to something that is painful.

Lyrics

Turn back the clock
Give me my time
Give it back to me
Return what is mine
What you stole from me I cannot conceive
All my sleepless nights you would not believe

Out of my fingers
Slipping through my hands
Like some bird with jewelled feathers
Like contraband
Turn back the clock
Give me my time
Give it back to me
Return what is mine

Oh love, what did you say?
Did you say you were staying
Or going away?
Oh love, what did you mean?
Do I read your words
Or the spaces between?

And I gave you my heart
And it didn't even sting
A song and a promise and a fine silver ring
What you stole from me I cannot conceive
I had you down for a lover
Never for a thief

From a clamour of voices
Turn me round in the silence
Turn my body round sideways
In the icy cold flow
They say time will heal
But it's flowing like water
Rolled deep in the river
Like contraband
