livin' the dream, somewhat

from by Ronan the Barbarian

lyrics

these days are long wavy lines
nothin' but shadows all the time
and a face the sun don't like
i tried to outpace it tried to fight

but i'll have you don't mind if i do
you and your little dog too
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean

these days are gone out of sight
i waited too long got nothin' but time
i miss your face and all the others
every last shady motherfucker

if i had half of what you had
i'd never ever doubt myself
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean

at the end of the line there's a station
i saw you there patiently waitin'
sort of a deer drowned in the headlights
tryin' to raise some ancient child

these days are long from the longin'
some nights i mourn for them mornin's
waiting outside of liquor store shutters
watching the snow run into the gutters

i'll have you don't mind if i do
you and your little dog too
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean.
