Nellie McKay Our Life Lyrics

Last updated: 05/08/2012 11:00:00 AM

He bet me
He told me he'd never forget me
Regret me is something he never could do

He laughed, then he looked like a kid on vacation
Could hardly contain his elation
His world had aligned with his view

He told me he felt that he'd gave up on our life
It took a minute to realise he wasn't referring to we

Though blood smiles may glisten like poison
Though kind eyes can moisten with treason with the whole time
Though our life was never to be

Woah, woah, woah, our life
Our life meant something to me

The mountains, and rivers, and springtime, and summer
November brings cold, winter nights by the fire
The rainfall outside of that movie, a phone call
They always glue to me at [?]
A kitten, a pumpkin, a pie

He told me he felt that he'd gave up on our life
It took me a minute to realise
For I was to blinded to see through the blossoms
Who shelter the sun from the pavement
The sadness, which end of the day meant: if you love someone, set them free

Woah, woah, woah, our life
Our life meant something to me

He told me he felt that he'd gave up on our life
It may take a lifetime to realise he wasn't referring to we

Though living a bachelor existence is lovely
And living means most to the lonely
Though our life was never to be

Woah, woah, woah, our life
Our life meant something to me
Woah, woah, woah, our life
Our life meant something to me
Woah, woah, woah, our life
Our life meant something to me
