ELO - Livin’ thing
Tekst en muziek: Jeff Lynne
(1976)






Sailin’ away on the crest of a wave
It’s like magic
Oh, rollin’ and ridin’ and slippin’ and slidin’
It’s magic
And you and your sweet desire
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby



It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose



Making believe this is what you’ve conceived
From your worst day
Oh, moving in line when you look back in time
To the first day
When you and your sweet desire
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby



It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose



Takin’ a dive, ’cause you can’t halt the slide
Floating downstream
Oh, so let her go, don’t start spoiling the show
It’s a bad dream
And you and your sweet desire
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby



It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose



It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
