lyrics

‘We Live The Life We Choose’

Sometimes I wonder,
What the neighbours musta’ thought they saw.
You dancin’ in the window,
Me singing about when the world was raw…
I was singin’ about when the world was raw.
I was singin’ to you when the world was new.

Vampires on cellphones…
Yeah, we live the life we choose.
I talk with fire,
Take pictures with strangers,
Yeah, we live the life we choose.

Chorus

The archangel cranks up the karaoke machine,
The crack of the transistor,
The endless hallelujah,
Yeah, we live the life we choose.

I was inside the poem,
Looking out from between the words,
Yeah, we live the life we choose.
The crows keep on passing the word,
From bird to bird, to big black bird.
Yeah, we live the life we choose.

Chorus

Stardust… and into the world.
Ashes and rust, beginning to end,
to beginning, again.
To beginning again…
