The One Minute Finger

Written By: Saverio Tropiano

The One Minute Finger

She puts her hands up on her hips
A lets that cold stare linger
I move to kiss her on the lips
And get that one minute finger

I remember when we met
No time for dinner or the TV set
I didn’t make it into work
Tattooed my shoulder so I’d never forget

And that’s a full stop
So let’s take it from the top
Will you love me up again
Or leave our love up to fate?

I’m tired of all the changing
All the love re-arranging
Tell me now baby,
I’ve got to hear it straight

‘Cause I can read the signs
But I’m no mind reader
What’s going on?
What’s going on?
Such a waste of time
When a couple’s just two singles
Lose a little something
More than words can say

She couldn’t love me for the money
‘Cause I’ve been on empty since the day we met
But I found a way to keep it sunny
Kept her in love, and clothes, and cigarettes

But I can tell she’s lying
Even when I hear her crying
I used to call her over
Now she tells me it’s to late

Love gets so confusing
When there’s love up for losing
Tell me now baby,
I’ve got to hear it straight

‘Cause I can read the signs
But I’m no mind reader
What’s going on?
What’s going on?
Such a waste of time
When a couple’s just two singles

Loose a little something
More than words can say

Now she don’t look me in the eye…

She’s staying out late with her friends
Turning my week into a dead-end
On friday nights she’s party bound
My old apartment’s like a ghost town

What good’s a beating heart
Made up of broken parts
And I believed you
Now I’m standing in the rain

Don’t need that old story
Always ends with I’m so sorry
Tell me now baby,
I’ve got to hear it straight

‘Cause I can read the signs
But I’m no mind reader
What’s going on?
What’s going on?
Such a waste of time
When a couple’s just two singles
Loose a little something
More than words can say

Now when she looks me in the eye
It’s just that cold stare linger
But there’s one thing I can’t deny
The one minute finger…
