lyrics

9:45, moonrise, it's time already
Cold as a knife on your fragile skin
Oh, when the morning comes, will you remember this
As the way it all begins

It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Though promises promise it otherwise
It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Get yourself together and rise

Stack the bags you never pack in a pile by the door
Grab the map you've always had but never travelled before
Oh, when the morning comes, will you find yourself
Far from the bed you don't need anymore

It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Though promises promise it otherwise
It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Get yourself together and rise, rise

Thirty seconds to spare
Swerving all around, and you don't care
God save the soul of the man
Who gave you gasoline
Thirty seconds is time
To make or break a man, and you don't mind
God save the soul of the man
Who gave you gasoline, oh, gasoline

It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Though promises promise it otherwise
It is time, it is, never once should you doubt this
Get yourself together and, get yourself together and
Get, get yourself together and rise

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
