Life Is Long
Brian Eno & David Byrne Lyrics


Everybody says that the living is easy
I can barely see cause my head's in the way
Tigers walk behind me, they are to remind me that
I'm lost, but I'm not afraid

Soul to soul, A kiss and a sigh
Sawed in half, by the passage of time
Halfway home, from a window you see
Chains and bars, but I am still free
People on the outside, I remember sweet times
This old rose, is always in bloom
Everybody's happy, to be a baby daddy
Stone love, with nothing to lose

Life is long, if you give it way
So stay, don't go, cause I'm fading away
Soul to soul, between you and me
Chain me down, but I am still free

Now I can say, those three little words
And every day, I'm dreaming a world
Soul to soul, a kiss and a sigh
Holding back, the waters outside.

Life is long, if you give it away
So stay, don't go, cause I'm fading away
Soul to soul, between you and me
Chain me down, but I am still free

Everybody says that the living is easy
I can barely see 'cause my head's in the way
Tigers walk behind me, they are to remind me
That I'm lost but I'm not afraid

Soul to soul, a kiss and a sigh
Sawed in half by the passage of time
Halfway home from a window you see
Chains and bars but I am still free

People on the outside, I remember sweet times
This old rose is always in bloom
Everybody's happy to be a baby daddy
Stone love with nothing to lose

Life is long if you give it away
So stay, don't go 'cause I'm fading away
Soul to soul between you and me
Chain me down but I am still free

Now I can say those three little words
And everyday I'm dreaming a world
Soul to soul, a kiss and a sigh
Holding back the waters outside

Life is long if you give it away
So stay, don't go 'cause I'm fading away
Soul to soul between you and me
Chain me down but I am still free

David Byrne is always writing lyrics that I deeply connect to. This must be the place, Home, heaven, Like Humans Do. I love that man.

Some songs touch your soul and this song is one .

Terry Barham

What a great song. Same feel good vibe of "True Stories" but with Brian Eno. 30 years later and the guys have still got it. Rock & Roll aging with grace. Brilliant.

RobotWookiee

The keyboards are so tastefully added to the song. Take note, musicians: quality over quantity. As an aside, the keyboards are magical and cut deep. I can't be the only person that feels this way.
