Steve Forbert – I Blinked Once lyrics

Childhood often seemed a pain to me
So hard waiting to be grown
Childhood climbed up in a white oak tree
I blinked once and it was gone

Airplane flying across the midnight sky
His tiny lights blinked off and on
I watched him move across the moon on high, well
I blinked once and it was gone
Gone, gone, yeah
I blinked once and it was gone

A girl I'd met was all I cared for, friends
I called her my very own
We went down to hear the band begin
I blinked once and she was gone
Gone, gone, yeah
I blinked once and she was gone

Hey
[Instrumental Bridge]

I won big money on the gambling wheel
And I thought I’s sitting on a throne
Big John told me ‘bout his condo deal
I blinked once and it was gone

The nineteen seventies was ten long years
Was ten long years to sing a song
It kicked off madly with a New Year's cheer
I blinked once and it was gone, that’s right
It’s gone, gone
I blinked once and it was gone

Now old man's talking bout a gun he'd shot
And he weren't much more than skin and bone
Lying there breathing on this worn out cot
I blinked once and he was gone
He was gone, gone, yeah
I blinked once and he was gone, gone
I blinked once and he was gone, GONE, gone, yeah
I blinked once and he was gone

[Long Instrumental Outro]
Hey
