Life In Detail Lyrics

by Robert Palmer

Who can tell just what might happen?
Sometimes you're gonna feel a shock
You got your carbonite, you think you're laughin'
They may hit you like a ton of rock

You see your life in detail
Such a close-up view
From another angle
Like another you

It's that feelin' again
Do you remember, when?
You were so confused
You knew everything

You thought that happiness was automatic
That you were livin' in the meantime

It's that feelin' again
Do you remember, when?
You had it all sown up
And then you call a friend

Like a life in detail
Such a close-up view
Like a mirrored image
Of another you

You were after Mr. Energetic
Now you wonder why you feel so alone
That you're under anesthetic
Makes you wonder, where you're comin' from

It's like the feelin' again
Do you remember, when?
You were so convinced
You knew everything

Like a life in detail
Such a close-up view
From another angle
Like another you
