Built To Last

Lyrics

What a wonderful way that your spirit moves
As it twists and floats through the air
Though the thin crystalness above the clouds
And the wind that whisks though the air

And the whole world flies by your window
Coasting along the abyss
Take good care if you're leavin'
Look after the ones that you miss
And you lose, and you go with it

I got a funny feeling, it almost makes me laugh
Cause I got the screws, and you got the tools
For a love that's built to last

Your heart's out in the ocean
And your spirit's on a subway train
And you'll buy it somewhere on the Interstate now blowing smoke from a backfire blast

And you know where you're goin' when you get there
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Push down on the pedal, and throw out the mat, cause were in for a long, long time
And you lose, and you go with it

I got a funny feeling, it almost makes me laugh
Cause I got the screws, and you got the tools
For a love that's built to last

Now if they're so goddamn disposable
And you ain't got the time to cry
The least you can give it is one last chance
So c'mon lets give it a try

I got a funny feeling, it almost makes me laugh
Cause I got the screws, and you got the tools
For a love that's? a love that's built to last
