Bidin’ Time Lyrics

(Written by Kim Longacre, and recorded during the “Saturday” sessions but not included on the original album. It was included on the 1990 DB Records compilation “Squares Blot Out The Sun” and on the re-released “Saturday” by Dualtone Records in 2002)

On a swollen silver casted night
Outstretched
Rhythm chanted
Raising dusty ancient cries
While I watch your eyes
Fill with shaken
Head distraction
Eyebrow arched you poise your arrow
Shooting me with what you know will work

On a blue lit crystal night
I unfold the thing of comfort
Pulling warm the linen of this dream
Your echoes ‘round my ankles
You try to wrap advice around
As I walk barefoot through this silly
Romance undertaken

Chorus:
What I do to bide my time
Is harmless as your rolling eyes
And if I love the dance I will
What I do to bide my time
Is harmless as your rolling eyes
And if I love the dance I will

Outstretched
Rhythm chanted
Raising dusty ancient cries
While I watch your eyes
Fill with shaken-head distraction
Eyebrow arched you poise your arrow
Shooting me with what you know will work

If harvests are bare
And dust clouds disposition
Gods and authors are to blame
Deep you know the seed will grow
A lot depends on other things
(Repeat Chorus)
