It's goodbye tomorrow and it has come too soon
It's goodbye to our spoken words that killed the afternoon
And I don't want to lose

Well goodbye, yes, I'm leaving town, I know we did not speak
But I heard some of the things you said, and I agree
But not it's too late

But time stops for no man, time stops for no man

And you, you are my best friend, you who I just met
We quickly found some common ground
I'm new in town, let me show you around

But first let me brush off the burden of my past life
Take off the mask, put on the beard
No one will recognise me here

But time stops for no man, time stops for no man

Well if time don't stop, what do I got up to this point in time?
Do memories count? I'm sure they do
My leaving night, remember what I said to you?

That time stops for no man, time stops for no man
That time stops for no man
