Ives The Band – Archie The Equilibrist lyrics

It was a long, long time ago
The morning sun had begun to glow
It was early, it's light was upon me
The letter was clear, the air was thin
You wrote to say that I won't fit in
With your heart

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh

It was a dark, cold starry night
The moon spoke of another life
You could hope for but never believe in
The ink it was fresh upon your hands
You knew you'd never understand
The way that I could make you feel sorry

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh

If only life was more like living
If all that time the walls were caving
You'd cry you'd, hold me, you'd say you regret all you've done
If you could see me now

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
