Time on My Hands
Rose Murphy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When the day fades away into twilight
The moon is my light of love
In the night, I am quite a romancer
I find an answer above
To being me consolation, you're my inspiration
This is my imagination.

Time on my hands, you in my arms
Nothing but love in view, then you fall
Once and for all, I'll see my dreams come true
Moments to spare for someone you care for
Our love affair for two




With time on my hands and you in my arms
And love in my heart all for you.

Stops far too abruptly but it's a great example of Rose Murphy's genius! Right up there with the best of Fats Waller I reckon. Thanks for posting.
