It's a Living Thing

It's a Living Thing / With lyrics - Electric Light Orchestra / A New World Record - YouTube




Sailing away on the crest of a wave
It's like magic
Oh and rolling and riding and slippin' and sliding
It's magic

And you, and your sweet desire
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby



It's a living thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

I'm taking a dive
Dive



Making believe this is what you've conceived
From your worst day, I'm takin' a dive
Oh, moving in line when you look back in time
To the first day, I'm taken, I'm taken

And you and your sweet desire
Don't you do it, don't you do it
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby

It's a living thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

And I'm takin' a dive
Ah the slide, hey



Takin' a dive 'cause you can't halt the slide
Floating downstream, I'm takin' a dive
Ah so let her go don't start spoiling the show
It's a bad dream, I'm taken, I'm taken

And you and your sweet desire
Don't you do it, don't you do it
You took me, oh, higher and higher, baby




It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing




In the morning when I wake up And I open up my eyes, I feel an aching in my heart That's when I realize. How much I really miss you And long to have you near. My heart is filled with sadness, And my eyes mist up and tear. At different times throughout the day, I find I'm missing you. ... And I wonder if, perhaps a bit, Maybe you miss me too. I miss you in the shower, When I'm in there all alone. And when I want to hear your voice, And call you on the phone. When I check my e-mail And find there's nothing there. I can't help it that I worry, And I put you in my prayers. I think by now it's safe to say, That I miss you very much, And my heart will never be the same Since it suffered True Love's touch...
