Waiting For My Real Life To Begin

( Colin Hay / Thom Mooney )

Any minute now
My ship is coming in
I’ll keep checking the horizon
I’ll stand on the bow
Feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down down down on me

And you say
Be still my love
Open up your heartLet the light shine in
But don’t you understand
I already have a plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin

When I awoke today
Suddenly nothing happened
But in my dreams I slew the dragon
And down this beaten path
And up this cobbled lane
I’m walking in my old footsteps once again
And you say
Just be here now
Forget about the past
Your mask is wearing thin
Let me throw one more dice
I know that I can win
I’m waiting for my real life to begin

Any minute now
My ship is coming in
I keep checking the horizon
And I’ll check my machine
There’s sure to be that call
It’s gonna happen soon soon soon
It’s just that times are lean

And you say
Be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in
Don’t you understand
I already have a plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin
Yes and don’t you understand
It’s my very own plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin
