Hurray for the Riff Raff – LIFE ON EARTH Lyrics

LIFE ON EARTH Lyrics – Hurray for the Riff Raff

Sky in the trees and birds and the bees
Life on Earth is long
Rivers and lakes and floods and earthquakes
Life on Earth is long

And, no, I might not meet you there
Leaving it beyond repair

Won’t you hold me?
So I can see
The man in the mask at the desk with a flask
Sings, “Life on Earth is long”
And the girl in a cage with the moon in her eye
Sings, “Life on Earth is long”

And, no, I might not meet you there
To feel the breeze and breathe the air

But it’s in me
Infinitely
Monarchs in flight, dawn’s early light
Life on Earth is long
The sun in the west and the one you love best
Life on Earth is long

And, no, I might not meet you there
Spirit blinded by despair

Oh, but the lightning strikes
To illuminate the night

And, no, I might not meet you there
Through galaxies of song and prayer

I’ll be lost in time
Growing on a vine
Egyptian spring and love in Beijing
Life on Earth is long
Life on Earth is long
