mary sanchez… fell in love
time with her romeo was never enough
headin’ southbound santa fe…
makin’ plans for their big day
in a red ford sedan on a sunny saturday
off into the early morn…
waved goodby with a kiss
for a beauty salon on the south side
of her bliss

and you who carry the world…
without an alibi
turn away from the river of tears…
there’s so much pressure on you
too much to do… ain’t no time…

jimmy james fitch… came unhinged…
playa’ livin’ large drove a jet black ‘cedes benz
fell on hard times… conditions so unkind
lost direction… lost perception…
and finally lost his mind…
turned his benz into santa fe…
headin’ north on a southbound lane
with the pedal to the metal…
determination on his face

and you who carry the world…
without an alibi
turn away from the river of tears…
there’s so much pressure on you
too much to do… ain’t no time…

mary’s romeo got the call
found jimmy james fitch…
found mary… saw it all
saw the red ford sedan…
the black mercedes benz
tangled up in a blacktop bed…
of shattered diamonds

and you who carry the world
without an alibi
dive deep into the river of tears…
and meander to the ocean…
there’s nothin’ but time now…

time
time
time
