I think the intro is played in 3 different positions by guitar 1
whilst guitar 2 just plays the above riff 3 times

1st time -  G --14b16--14-11----12-14p12p11--12--

2nd "  " -  B --15b17--15-12----13-15p13p12--13--

Chorus

There is a lot of stuff going on with the other guitars during the
chorus, but I haven't the time or the skill to do it correctly.
Mediocrity is not my style, so I'm not going to guess.

View Just Lyrics...

If you had the time to lose,
An open mind and time to choose,
Would you care to take a look,
Or can you read me like a book?

Time is always on my side,
Time is always on my side.

Can I tempt you, come with me,
Be Devil may care, fulfill your dream,
If I said I'd take you there,
Would you go, would you be scared?

Time is always on my side,
Time is always on my side.

Don't be afraid, you're safe with me,
Safe as any soul can be, honestly,
Just let yourself go.

[Chorus]
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time, oh oh

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing,
You try to hide your deepest sins,
Of all the things that you've done wrong,
And I know where you belong.

Time is always on my side,
Time is always on my side.

Make you an offer you can't refuse,
You've only got your soul to lose
Eternally
Just let yourself go!

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught now in two minds!
