Sailin' away on the crest of a wave
It's like magic
Oh, rollin' and ridin' and slippin' and slidin'
It's magic

And you, and your sweet desire
You took me, ohh, higher and higher, baby

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

I'm takin' a dive

Making believe this is what you've conceived
From your worst day, I'm takin' a dive
Oh, moving in line when you look back in time
To the first day, I'm takin', I'm takin'

And you and your sweet desire
You took me (Don't you do it, don't you do it), ohh, higher and higher baby

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

And I'm takin' a dive, ah the slide, hey

Takin' a dive 'cause you can't halt the slide
Floating downstream, I'm takin a dive
Ah, so let her go don't start spoiling the show
It's a bad dream, I'm takin', I'm takin'

And you and your sweet desire
You took me(Don't you do it, don't you do it), ohh, higher and higher, baby

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose
