Artist/Band: The Go-Betweens
Lyrics for Song: The Life At Hand
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - The Go-Betweens



A ruby waistcoat won't hide my fear

At 12:31 watch my teeth disappear

People buy watches

Then tell the time

By the punctual keeling

And crack of my spine

But if you're feeling brave

And you're feeling strong

Please pick me up and take me along

And if you're getting tired then rest for a spell

I'll carry you just as well



Because

I'll take you to the life at hand

I'll show you how to live the life at hand

I'll give you

Give my life at hand

It's raining

It's pouring

The doorbell's dead



You're an artist with your body

But you can't find your head

With your first million safe in the mattress

You've gotta give it up when the nest-egg hatches

But if you're feeling brave

And you're feeling strong

Please pick me up and take me along

And if you're getting tired

Then rest for a spell

I'll carry you just as well



Well

I'll take you to the life at hand

I'll show you how to live the life at hand

I'll give you

Give my life at hand
