FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Time Won’t Wait’ Jamiroquai

I do like this….Complex. Tight. Professional

Jamiroquai are an English funk and acid jazz band from London. Formed in 1992, they are fronted by vocalist Jay Kay, and were prominent in the London-based funk and acid jazz movement of the 1990s. They built on their acid jazz sound in their early releases and later drew from rockdiscoelectronic and Latin music genres. Lyrically, the group has addressed social and environmental justice. Kay has remained as the only original member through several line-up changes.

Jamiroquai is a portmanteau of the words “jam” and the name of a Native American confederacy, the Iroquois.

“Time Won’t Wait”

One
Two
One, two, three, four

Hey!
Time won’t wait for you
Keeps on ticking away
Burning up every day
Ooh, (Time won’t wait for you)
Oh, time (Keeps on ticking away)
Oh, time (Burning up every day)
She
Was sleeping at the bus stop
Heaven away
But a magic in her blue eyes
Told me she had left a daze
(Left a daze)
So I have to check her wisdom
And there was no doubt
I told her I was sitting alone and on crestfallen
Future’s gonna catch me out
She said, “Time won’t wait for you
So do all the things you wanted to
Better hurry up, take it in your stride
And use your resolution which you’ve been supplied”
“And love won’t change you, boy, it’s true
I can tell you till my face is blue
Every second screams, listen to your dreams
Ooh, ’cause you just can’t stop the clock
On a brick wall I was banging over my head
But the sweet rings on my feet now
Where once they were made of lead
(Sweet rings on my feet now)
Do you hear the message in the music, I hear it too
You know, you got your history in the making
Slowing down won’t get you through, no, no
Time won’t wait for you
So do all the things you wanted to
Better hurry up, take it in your stride
Use your resolution which you’ve been supplied
And love won’t change you, boy, it’s true
I can tell you till my face is blue
Every second screams, listen to your dreams
‘Cause you just can’t stop the clock

Time won’t wait for you
Keeps on ticking away
Burning up every day
Time won’t wait for you
Keeps on ticking away
Burning up every day

It keeps on
(It keeps on)
You know that it keeps on
You know that it keeps on
(It keeps on)
It keeps on ticking, yeah
It keeps on
(It keeps on)
You know that it keeps on
You know it keeps on
Keeps on ticking, baby
Time won’t wait for you
So do all the things you wanted to
You better hurry up hey take it in your stride
Use your resolution which you’ve been supplied
Love won’t change you, boy, it’s true
I can tell you till my face is blue
Every second screams, listen to your dreams
Oh, ’cause you just can’t stop the pop

You know that it keeps on ticking away
Keeps on ticking away
(Time won’t wait for you)
Time it keeps on ticking away
Keeps on ticking away
Time won’t wait for you
Won’t wait for you
Oh, won’t wait for you, no
Can’t stop
