Lifeline

( Colin Hay / Chad Fischer )

Get out of Hollywood drive into the hills
Roll down the top and then just throw away your pills
You’ll never forget her so why do you even try
Things will get easier as the days go creaking by

Broke my heart, I saw it coming from the start
I really hate to see the shape I’m in
Broke all the rules and you know life can be cruel but
I think it’s time I learned to swim

Show me there still can be some mystery
I haven’t found
Throw me a lifeline to the lost at sea
Don’t let me drown

And if I had my way I tell you what I’d do
I’d drive down to the lake before the sky gets blue
Fill up my bottle from water from the spring
‘Cause I read somewhere that it cures everything

Broke my heart, I saw it coming from the start
I really hate to see the shape I’m in
Broke all the rules and you know life can be cruel but
I think it’s time I learned to swim

Show me there still can be some mystery
I haven’t found
Throw me a lifeline to the lost at sea
Don’t let me drown

Broke my heart, I saw it coming from the start
I really hate to see the shape I’m in
Broke all the rules and you know life can be cruel but
I think it’s time I learned to swim

Show me there still can be some mystery…..

Show me a way out of this misery…..
