High Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All my friends got flowers in their eyes
But I got none this season
All of the last ten years' blooms have gone and died
Time doesn't give a reason

Well hey baby, do you ask yourself sometimes
What you need to be forgiven?
Everything that you've ever done wrong
Is the reason that I'm driven straight to you

Waiting here for you, wanting to tell you
How I get my ends and my beginnings mixed up too
Just the way you do, I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

It's just like answers
That come in small packages
That go in the mail

Waiting for the trains that just never come
Beginning to believe in
The disappearing nature of the people we have been
We have begun to change

Into the worst kind of people, so unkind
Oh apologies, no apologies, this apology
Doesn't describe the way it feels to feel for you

Waiting here for you, wanting to tell you
How I find myself slowly disappearing too
Just the way you do, I thought if I told you
You might want to help me to remain with you

I just wanna stay for a little while
I wanna stay for a little while

Well come on, now come on, now come, now come on
'Cause there's a night life falling down on me
I just feel like a change
Beneath the sun in the summer a sea of flowers won't bloom
Without the rain

But oh, this desert life, this high life
Here at the dying of the day
I wasn't made for this scene, baby, I was made in this scene
Baby, it's just my way

I don't want to go home alone
I wanna come on home to you

Waiting here for you, wanting to tell you
How I line my sky with all the silver I can use
Just the way you do, I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

Isn't that just like disappearing into the sum of yourself
And the person you are disappearing into
It's like one plus one equals nothing at all
One plus two equals nothing at all, one plus me equals nothing at all
One plus you equals one plus you equals you and you and you and you And nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all
Nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all
Nothing at all, nothing at all
