Time killer

I am humming to stay awake
On this night without you
Oh, tomorrow’s a slow day
Don’t have anything to wake up to

And I play for all those lovers
I sent away
Easier to think of one
I haven’t met but will meet one day

You see, I was a substitute
For the one that got away
I’m sure he only needed me
To stay until the dawn of the day

And I was never madly in love, no
He was being just as used
That’s the difference between us
I was barely amused

And when I long for someone
It’s not his love I long, his love I long, his love I long for
And when I’m singing these lovesongs
It’s not him I’m singing them for

Now he’s trying to fly and taste
The nights without me
Looking for another patch
To cover up the man he could not be

And he dances away with women
He won’t see again
They must think he’s their savior
Oh, they must think he’s a pure-minded man

You see, he’s just a timekiller
Shooting stars right out of the sky
My tongue is my weapon
‘Til my throat runs dry

And I’ll dance with all of those women
Once he has left them to be
My body’s just as bored as his
My heart is just as free

And when I long for someone
It’s not his love I long, his love I long, his love I long for
And when I’m singing these lovesongs
It’s not him I’m singing them for
