Lyric:

(Well) Time is on my side, yes it is

Now you always say
That you want to be free

But you'll come running back - I said you would, baby
You'll come running back - like I said so many times before
You'll come running back to me

You're searching for good times
But just wait and see

You'll come running back - I won't have to worry no more
You'll come running back - I'll spend the rest of my life with you, baby
You'll come running back to me

Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town
And, baby, do everything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around
And I know, I know like I told you so many times before
You're going to come back, baby
Cause I know you're going to come back
Knocking, yeah, knocking right on my door, yes, yes

Cause I've got the real love
The kind that you need

You'll come running back - I said you would, baby
You'll come running back - I always said you would
You'll come running - I won't have to worry no more
To me

Yes, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
