"Everything Takes Forever" as written by Grant William Mclennan and Steve Kilbey....
As you stumble into the future
Remorselessly moving out of the past
And you separate the reflex moments of living
You drag down the morning into your room
You can sing with your partner
You can sing by yourself
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing with the vampires
You can sing with the beast
You can sing that everything takes forever
As you sit at the table you make small decisions
You lie in your bed and you laugh at the dark
You ask yourself a hundred dumb questions
And you answer yourself with a hundred dumb lies
(Chorus)
And then tomorrow wake up with a stranger
You drag down the morning into your room
(Chorus)
You can sing in the twilight
You can sing in the morning
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing in the orchards
You can sing by the streams
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing under stars
You can sing in the graveyard
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing in your sunglasses
You can sing by the moon
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing with accordians
You can sing with violins
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing with the knifethrowers
You can sing with the freaks
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing in the avenues
You can sing under starlight
You can sing that everything takes forever
You can sing with the last ones
You can sing with the children
You can sing that everything takes forever
