I was in some timeless space
Timeless face of my embrace
Held empty air and empty space
All on a sunny day

She lived by the bounding main
To Baltimore I took a plane
An east coast lady lit my flame
All on a sunny day

I was in some dreamless sleep
Where angels watch as lovers leap
Some of them landed on their feet
Letting the lifeline stray

She was like the breath of spring
Where flowers grow and robins sing
Keeping me from the pouring rain
All on a summer's day

There's a lifeline that I know
And it holds me back, and lets me go
Whatever I do
I don't let my lifeline stray

So it goes as lifetimes pass
From heart to mind and back again
My restlessness becomes a flame
Letting my lifeline show

She stood by the boundless tide
Afraid to ride, afraid to hide
Letting her conscience be her guide
Needing a lifeline so

I was in some aimless state
Where lovers meet while angels wait
With gifts of time they hesitate
All on a sunny day

She lived by the bounding main
From Baltimore I took a train
An east coast lady lit my flame
All on a summer's day

There's a lifeline in my soul
And it holds me back and lets me go
I'm in love so I've been told
Letting the lifeline stay

I've got a heart line in the air
And if you listen for me you'll find me there
Whatever I do
I don't let my lifeline stray
