Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

Love won’t see my comin’
on a Sunday noon today.
Still don’t believe we’re fadin’,
but now the world should wait.

And now you’re fina’lly list’nin’
to what I have to say.
Well, the time is right,
and it is today.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Maybe we could talk about it
and try to get it straight.
After all these years, baby,
maybe it’s too late.

But I really need to
have you by my side,
And that’s the only feelin’,
baby, I can’t hide.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Well you aren’t list’nin’,
I ain’t talkin’,
we ain’t gettin’ nowhere.

I keep tryin’ to get
through to you baby.
All you do is stare.

I don’t wanna see that.
I need you by my side.
Well, I don’t want to be your lover.
Babe, I wanna be your man.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Well, now my story’s over, baby,
and I ain’t gonna tell it twice.
Well, you better start list’nin’,
or get out of my life.

Or you’re gonna be left out,
I said left out in the cold.
Yeah, before you get my lovin’,babe,
you’ll be too old.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Well, I’m talkin’ to you baby.
Well, I said
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
