Robert Palmer – Life In Detail lyrics

Who could tell just what might happen?
Sometimes you're gonna feel a shock.
You got your carbonet - you think you're laughin'
It may hit you like a ton of rock.

You see your life in detail
Such a close-up view
From another angle
Like another you

It's that feelin' again
Do you remember when?
You were so confused
You knew ever y thing

You thought that happiness was automatic
That you were livin' in mean time

It's that feelin' again
Do you remember when?
You had it all sown-up
And then you call a friend

A, like a life in detail
Such a close-up view
Like a mirrored image
Of another you

{Instrumental interlude}

You were after Mr. Energenic
Now you wonder why you feel so alone
That you're under anethestetic
Makes you wonder where you're comin' from

It's like the feelin' again
Do you remember when?
You were so convinced
You knew everything

Like a life in detail
Such a close-up view
From another angle
Like another you.
