love of our lives (lyrics) – indigo girls

26 April, 2009 § Leave a comment

I open my hands up to see what I’ve got
My days slip like coins into a slot they are gone
And the shadows lie long

I’ve been banking on a broken machine
Left unattended like most of my dreams
Rusty components of an unmarked song

We’ve been staring down the brilliant dream
The sun burns our eyes
We’ve been fighting for the love of our lives

All around us things come apart
Broken pieces broken hearts
Fix me, oil me, match me with the next best thing

Now person to person, nation to nation,
Heels dug in now communication
Wiley time sneaks her weathering
We’ve been wanting to be held by binding ties
We’ve been fighting for the love of our lives

When it breaks down I beg you don’t go
I set on your ship I’m ready to blow
I try to out think you with an army of words
I strategise; I am fighting for the love of my life

Iron water oxygen
Scotch and soda or any combination
Starts the reaction

Is there no mastermind of modern day
Who can blueprint a plan to make love stay
Sturdy and weatherproof, ushering in a new revolution
At the drawing board the hopeful ones still try
How can we help it when we’re fighting for the love of our lives

At the drawing board the hopeful ones still try
How can we help it when we’re fighting for the love of our lives
