  • When you're falling awake
    And you take stock of the new day
    And you hear your voice croak
    As you choke on what you need to say,

    Well, don't you fret, don't you fear,
    I will give you good cheer.
    Life's a long song,
    Life's a long song,

    Life's a long song.
    If you wait then your plate I will fill.
    As the verses unfold and your soul
    Suffers the long day

    And the twelve o'clock gloom
    Spins the room, you struggle on your way,
    Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry,
    Lick the dust from your eye.

    We'll meet in the sweet light of dawn.
    As the Baker Street train spills your pain
    All over your new dress
    And the symphony sounds underground

    Puts you under duress,
    Well, don't you squeal as the heel
    Grinds you under the wheels.
    Life's a long song,

    Life's a long song,
    Life's a long song,
    But the tune ends too soon for us all
