lyrics

Sitting in a coffee shop
Futzing on the internet
When suddenly I saw a flash of light
She appeared before my eyes
In a svelte coat with gadgetry
And said “Come with me— There’s no time!”

She said “Greetings, sir—
I am from The Future
And a third world war you can help prevent.
We have chosen you
for your tech prowess and ability
to follow directions from smart and pretty women"

And she was right
And she was

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine

She teleported us
To the thirtieth century
Asked “Can you help with this archaic technology?"
Showed me an old Mac
From summer 2015
So I DDrescued for file recovery

She said “Wow, you’re good.
Shame have to send you back."

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine

I said, "I have a dull ache in my chest"
She said, “That’s a time-travel side-effect”
But I knew better:
It was love

[solo]

In the 21st century
She returned in seconds to update me
We prevented war— mission complete
She said a few months had passed
I noticed an engagement ring
And she disappeared in a flash after a kiss on the cheek

months for her
minutes for me

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
