Lifelong Fling Lyrics

Lifelong Fling by Over The Rhine  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Lifelong Fling The moon blind-sided the sky again
As we grabbed loose ends of the tide and then
The slippery slide, you know I can't say when
And I ever took a ride that could slap me this silly

With roiling joy, lazy as sin
Lyin' up in heaven with my special friend
And the space he's in, it can make a girl grin
In the beginning of a lifelong fling

I wrote down a dream, folded the note
Slipped it in the pocket of my tattered coat
I wrote down a dream, invisible ink
It never was mine, I'm beginning to think

I wrote down a dream, what more could I do
I drew myself a picture and the picture was you
I wrote myself a riddle, I said what I wouldn't do
To give something good to a love like you

The moon blind-sided the sky again
As we grabbed loose ends of the tide and then
The slippery slide, you know I can't say when
And I ever took a ride that could slap me this silly

With roiling joy, lazy as sin
Lyin' up in heaven with my special friend
And the space he's in, it can make a girl grin
In the beginning of a lifelong fling

I wrote down a dream, folded the note
Passed it to you, we stepped in our boat
Sailed 'round the world, we were hoping to find
More than the sum of all we left behind

I wrote down a dream but what was it now
And why does it all feel so distant somehow
Did I take too long, did I get it wrong?
You're still the missing line in my favorite song

The moon blind-sided the sky again
As we grabbed loose ends of the tide and then
The slippery slide, you know I can't say when
And I ever took a ride that could slap me this silly

With roiling joy, lazy as sin
Lyin' up in heaven with my special friend
And the space he's in, it can make a girl sing

Someday, someday, someday
