Lifeline Lyrics

by Ben Harper

Life is too short to wonder
Who's gonna make the next move
And will it slowly pull you under
When you've always got something to prove

I don't want to wait a lifetime
Yours or mine
Yours or mine
Can't you see me reaching for the lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)

You say that I misheard you
But I think you misspoke
I hear you laugh so loudly
while I patiently wait for joke

I don't want to wait a lifetime
Not yours
Not mine
Can't you see me reaching for the lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)

It's a crime with only victims
We're all laid out in a row
And it's hardest to listen
to what we already should know
I could hold out for a lifetime
Yours or mine
Yours and mine
Can't you see me reaching for your lifeline
Your lifeline (x4)
