I like to read and I like to write

But you could persuade me to put the book down tonight

Just please dont ask to be a song heroine

Its not that easy just to stick you in, stick you in

Oh babe, I know youre right

But theres no time and its not the night

Id have to face you again and again

Although you know Id like to stick you in, stick you in

Theyre all sacred songs

Theyre not easily won

You know the words just seem to live on

The thoughts are sacred

Though the sound is profane

But this and that you know theyre

One and the same

One and the same

One and the one and the same

You never know how youre gonna end

I start out hard and I end up thin

You waste your time but you occasionally score

But you cant tell from what went down before, down before

Oh babe, do you see my point?

Theres just no time and its not the night

Id have to face you again and again

Although you know Id like to stick it in, stick it in

Theyre all sacred songs

Theyre not easily won

You know the words just seem to live on

The thoughts are sacred

Though the sound is profane

But this and that you know theyre

One and the same

One and the same

One and the one and the same
