Emeli Sande – Lifetime lyrics

Dreaming only lasts until you wake up and you find your not asleep,
Silence only sticks around till someone in the room decides to speak.

And love runs out and hearts go cold,
We're only young until we're old,
And summer leaves us wondering where it went.

The friends you have can disappear,
The whole world can change within a year,
And money only lasts until it's spent.

But you, you...
You last a lifetime. (last a lifetime)
You last a lifetime.

Truth will change and time will fly,
The party lasts until the wine is gone.
This time next week the radio,
Will change it's mind and play a different song.

We stay in touch till we forget,
And beauty fades, the kiss will end.
And fame will love and leave you just as fast.

You'll have it all, until it's gone.
The books get burnt and statues fall,
Sometimes feels like nothing will ever last.

But you, you...
You last a lifetime. (last a lifetime)
You last a lifetime.

Hey love can we dance together?
Since I found you feels like time don't matter,
Hey love now I feel much better,
You've shown me forever.

See you, you...
You last a lifetime (last a lifetime)
You last a lifetime.
