Half​-​Life

lyrics

I want to say something true
Got nothing to say
I want to feel something new – something different today
That’s why I called you over
That’s why I called you over

no pressure from me
Just let it be
Just let it be

nothing lasts forever – no never
tonight I need your lovin’ -
nothing lasts forever – no never
tonight I need your lovin’ - your lovin’


Don’t get me wrong
The moment I met you I missed you
one of those things
can’t explain
It’s Ending as soon as it begins
It’s a Half Life
Ending as soon as it begins
Half life

CHORUS
Nothing Lasts Forever No Never
tonight I need your lovin’
Nothing Lasts Forever No Never
tonight I need your lovin
cause Nothing Lasts Forever No Never
Nothing lasts Forever No Never
I said Nothing Lasts Forever No Never
tonight I need your Lovin’ - your lovin’

SPOKEN WORD
The magic of what we have lies in that space between the having and the not having – it sits in that place, between, that’s undefined.

People like to say to me ‘why do you like people who aren’t available’ and I tell them well perhaps I am the one who is not available or perhaps I’m as available as I’ll ever be.

(‘that’s why I called you over.’)

Hey I am a practical woman and I get what I want.
I am a practical woman who believes in magic, who insists on it, not just in the nighttime, but all the time and not just with you, but in everything I do……
