Mick Jagger – 1/2 A Life lyrics

We got half a life, we got half a dream
We got half a love, we got half a scheme
Always sitting in the darkness, I'll wait for you
Nervous of the neighbors, I'd like a hotel room
Cause I'm indiscreet, can't keep quiet
Heaven I don't know how
I can't go on seeing you like this
Give that knife just one more twist
This affair is really going to break my heart

Living half a life is better than nothing, half a dream
You know I can't keep quiet 'cause I'm indiscreet
I guess half a loaf leaves me feeling hungry
Half a glass, half a dream, half a life
Heaven I don't know how!
I can't go on seeing you like this
Give that knife just one more little twist
This affair is really going to break my heart

Let's call our friends! Let's go hang out! Let's go out dancing!
Let's jump and shout! Let's go be seen! Let's dress up chic!
Show we're in love! Right on our street!
Let's go out trashy! Let's go act cheap!
What does it matter what other people think?
Step in the bright lights!
Let's go act wild!
I want to show that you're mine all mine

Here's to freezing in the doorways, here's to taking separate taxis
To our stolen conversations, we're never seen together
Half a dream, half a life, heaven I don't know how!
But I can't go on seeing you like this!
Give that knife just one more little twist
This affair is really going to break my heart

I can't go on seeing you like this!
I can't go on seeing you like this!
I can't go on seeing you like this!
I can't go on seeing you like this!
Give that knife just one more little twist
I can't go on seeing you like this!
I can't go on seeing you like this!
Give that knife just one more little twist...
