07. Standing in Line

Goliath
by Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil



 

We shared the world like a private joke
Laughed our way out of hues and cries
Inhaled under the Bridge of Sighs
Itís not the way it was

The weather came
you were skating on fire
And love spilled out like antifreeze
The ice floes melted
in separate seas
If I was slow to learn
I will wait for another turn

IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONG
IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONG
IíVE BEEN WEIGHING THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME

You draw your lines from memoryís cage
I write songs for a jealous God
Two spoiled kids and a velvet rod
Itís not the way it was
And Iíd pursue you through any hell
Iíd swim upstream Ďtil I find the source
Dam the Mississippi and change its course
If it was up to me
If it was mine to turn

IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONG
IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONG
IíVE BEEN WEIGHING THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME

IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONG
IíVE BEEN WONDERING WHAT WENT WRONG
IíVE BEEN WEIGHING THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME

youíll come to
sooner or later
youíll come to

IíVE BEEN STANDING IN LINE SO LONGÖ
AND IíM NOT GONNA LEAVE
