Paroles de « Once In A Lifetime » de Talking Heads
You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
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

You may ask yourself
How do I work this?
You may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
You may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
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

You may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
You may ask yourself
Where does that highway lead to?
You may ask yourself
Am I right?… Am I wrong?
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 isn’t holding us

Time isn’t holding us
Time isn’t after us
Time isn’t holding us
[unknown line]

Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…
Once in a lifetime…

Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…
Letting the days go by…
Once in a lifetime…
