Lived in Vain

(Colin Hay/Michael Georgiades)

Walking with a crowded head
From nightmares of drinking
So I don’t believe in every dream
Or everything I’m thinking

Hey can’t you see just a little bit before you leave
Hey can’t you leave a little taste just for me
It’s not easy to explain
A life you think is lived in vain

Like a twisted wind that’s bearing down
That rearranges
Blowing through these prison bars
Of our imaginary cages

Hey can’t you see just a little bit before you leave
Hey can’t you leave a little taste just for me
It’s not easy to explain
A life you think is lived in vain

Waiting for my second spring
Where I’m connecting everything
No fixed address or destination
No more lines of separation
Where only love
Only love
Only love
And love is real

Nothing’s bad and nothing’s good and nothing changes
Day by day one by one I just turn the pages

Hey can’t you leave just a little light to shine on me
Hey can’t you leave a little light so I can see
It’s not easy to explain
A life you think is lived in vain
