“Once in A Lifetime” by Talking Heads

“Same as it ever was, same as it ever was. Letting the days go by, same as it ever was.”

And you may ask yourself, “How do I work this?”
And you may ask yourself, “Where is that large automobile?”
And you may tell yourself, “This is not my beautiful house”
And you may tell yourself, “This is not my beautiful wife”

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Water dissolving and water removing

There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean

And you may ask yourself, “What is that beautiful house?”
And you may ask yourself, “Where does that highway go to?”
And you may ask yourself, “Am I right? Am I wrong?”
And you may tell yourself,

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

and look where my hand was
Time isn’t holding up, time isn’t after us
Same as it ever was,

Letting the days go by,

Here a twister comes, here comes the twister
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Once in a lifetime, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
