All of my love and most of my fears,
Been coming on strong for most of my years;
Add up but didn't end up in a song.
Cellophane tweeds and revenue streams,
A block in my shops and killing my dreams
That showed me how to be the cause.

Oooo, Ahhh
Yeah, Laa
Oooo well
Hey! Aw! What! Now!

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's right.
It's a long time for me, I see.
She wants to be longing, I want to be free.
Ex-communicate it, 'cause there 'aint no guarantee.

Oooo, Ahhh
Yeah, Lo
Oooo, Ahhh
Yeah

All of my friends and enemies,
They were part of this dance that put me right here;
We go so glad I got this chance.
Better known plans than lesser known schemes,  
We're all lit by love but less about me; I'd have to say she wore the
Pants.

That's oh!

It's the lifetime of a strange man, that's right.
It's a long time for me, uh huh.
She wants to be longing, I want to be free.
Ex-communicate it, 'cause there 'aint no guarantee.

Woo! Yeah! Ahh! Ohh! Uhh!  

I've been left myself, that's gone she keeps it live. I guess suicide?
Yeah! Get it on a say, but not a good day. All the flashbangs, mamas and
Chess.

"Improvisation"

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's right.
It's a long time for me, let's see.
She wants to be longing, I want to be free.
Ex-communicate it, 'cause there 'aint no guarantee.

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's me.
It's a long time for me, uh huh.
She wants to be rich and I want to be free.
Keep your plans elastic 'cause there ain't no guarantee
