Tom Paxton – Now That I've Taken My Life lyrics
Now that I've taken my life, hiding the dampenings
Scouring the stubborn stains erasing them carefully.
Breaking the dreams of a life and interring them pray fully
My telephone never stops ringing

Now that I've taken my life
Now that I've taken my life, pleading reality
Mumbling moralities, and loosing the child I was.
Smiling my youth to the wall and recalling how wild I was

I'm a very popular man
Now that I've taken my life
It was a foolish life I know ivory towered and quite out of touch
It was a life that had to go I guess I won't miss it much.

For the solid gold winners are standing in line
And dangling a solid gold key
They take me to dinner they pour me my wine
They ask very little of me

Now that I've taken my life, remembering the April air
My hands in a cursory prayer my eyes and the crowd outside
The music is merry the laughter is comfortably loud outside
And the laughter I'm hearing is mine

Now that I've taken my life
It was a foolish life I know ivory towered and quite out of touch
It was a life that had to go I guess I won't miss it much.
For the solid gold women are standing in line

And dangling a solid gold key
The very best hostesses pour me my wine
Extending their daughters to me
Now that I've taken my life, hiding the dampenings

Scouring the stubborn stains erasing them carefully.
Breaking the dreams of a life and interring them pray fully
Ah there's clearly no stopping me now
Now that I've taken my life.
