Treasure Island

Mary Jesusa Villegas


Quarter Before Nine



I have to be angry
Because I love myself
Hated what you did to me
Would you know how I've felt?

I have to be angry
Because I love you so
Hated what you did to me
I have to close my door

Chorus:
So
Go ahead
Take your time
Fix your life
and I'll fix mine
Staring at the clock
It's quarter before nine
I've been restless in my bed
I was hoping you are mine

I have to find my own way
And I have to stay this way
And I hope you too can find
It's not easy to feel this way
It's not right to go that way
And I think that I should say
The path will be clearer
We'll find our place someday.

Chorus:
So
Go ahead
Take your time
Fix your life
And fix your mind

So
Go ahead
I'll mend my mind
and this broken heart
I'll take my time
Talking to myself
It; s quarter before nine
I've been restless in my bed
I was hoping you are mine.

Bridge:
Were you hoping to
Were you
Were you?
(2x)

Because I'm staring at this clock
It's quarter before nine
I've been restless in my bed
Was hoping that you're mine.

Please rush, please run
Do what needs to be done
And take our time
And time will come
that you'll be mine
Oh you'll be mine..

I'm staring at the clock
It's quarter before nine
I've been restless in my bed
Was hoping you were mine.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
