Hey Clockface<br>
 +
Keep your fingers on the dial<br>
 +
You stole those precious moments<br>
 +
And the kisses from her smile <br>
 +
And now I’m living in these hours<br>
 +
Away we will while<br>
 +
I’m not wasting any more time<br>
 +
<br>
 +
Hey Clockface<br>
 +
I really want to know<br>
 +
Why is it when we’re apart<br>
 +
You always take it slow<br>
 +
And when she’s here <br>
 +
You always say “It’s almost time to go”<br>
 +
You said you‘d be a friend to me<br>
 +
But time is just my enemy<br>
 +
And it is hurting me so<br>
 +
<br>
 +
The moon comes through the window shining crescently and bright <br>
 +
The sun rolls round again<br>
 +
If I could turn your face back <br>
 +
Before all of this started<br>
 +
Forty minutes past four when her secrets she parted<br>
 +
<br>
 +
Forty minutes past four in the faithless A.M<br>
 +
She wound up in his arms and not the man that I am<br>
 +
A spring that is sprung<br>
 +
A cuckoo-bird that sung<br>
 +
Now there’s a nail in a bare wall<br>
 +
Where your face once hung<br>
 +
<br>
 +
Hey Clockface<br>
 +
Now I don’t feel a thing<br>
 +
You stole away the heart in me<br>
 +
And then removed my spring<br>
 +
The winding mechanisms shot <br>
 +
The movement is unwound<br>
 +
Don’t tick or tock or dare to make a sound<br>
 +
<br>
 +
Hey Clockface<br>
 +
Well, don’t you ever dare <br>
 +
Count me down to zero hour <br>
 +
And keep me waiting here<br>
 +
A minute from departure <br>
 +
I will twist your key and have her come back to me <br>
 +
And have her come back to me<br>
 +
<br>
 +
How can you face me?<br>
 +
After what I’ve been through <br>

After you broke that vow<br>

How can you face me now?<br>

How can you face me now?<br>

lyrics for
Hey Clockface / How Can You Face Me?

Hey Clockface
Keep your fingers on the dial
You stole those precious moments
And the kisses from her smile
And now I’m living in these hours
Away we will while
I’m not wasting any more time

Hey Clockface
I really want to know
Why is it when we’re apart
You always take it slow
And when she’s here
You always say “It’s almost time to go”
You said you‘d be a friend to me
But time is just my enemy
And it is hurting me so

The moon comes through the window shining crescently and bright
The sun rolls round again
If I could turn your face back
Before all of this started
Forty minutes past four when her secrets she parted

Forty minutes past four in the faithless A.M
She wound up in his arms and not the man that I am
A spring that is sprung
A cuckoo-bird that sung
Now there’s a nail in a bare wall
Where your face once hung

Hey Clockface
Now I don’t feel a thing
You stole away the heart in me
And then removed my spring
The winding mechanisms shot
The movement is unwound
Don’t tick or tock or dare to make a sound

Hey Clockface
Well, don’t you ever dare
Count me down to zero hour
And keep me waiting here
A minute from departure
I will twist your key and have her come back to me
And have her come back to me

How can you face me?
After what I’ve been through
After you broke that vow
How can you face me now?
How can you face me now?
How can you face me now?
