Talking Heads Once In A Lifetime (Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 06/25/2008 11:00:00 AM

Peak Position: #91 (5/3/86)

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well...How did I get here?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself, how do I work this?
And you may ask yourself, where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself; this is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself; this is not my beautiful wife!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water, carry the water
Remove the water from the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.
Into the blue again, into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground.
Letting the days go by, into the silent water
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself, where does that highway move to?
And you may ask yourself, am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself, MY GOD! WHAT HAVE I DONE?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.
Into the blue again, into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground.
Letting the days go by, into the silent water
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...Same as it ever was...

Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us
Time isn't holding us, time doesn't hold you back
Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us
Time isn't holding us, my God! Good God!

Letting the days go by…Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…
Once in a lifetime (Y’see, what kind of good boy?)
Letting the days go by…Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…Once in a lifetime…
