I was in some timeless place, timeless face of my embrace
Held empty air and empty space, on a sunny day.
She lived by the bounding main, to Baltimore I took a plane
An east coast lady lit my flame, all on a sunny day.
I was in some dreamless sleep where angels watch as lovers leap
Some of them landed on their feet, lettin' the lifeline stray.
She was like the breath of spring where flowers grow and robins sing
Keepin' me from the pouring rain, on a summer's day.
There's a lifeline that I know and it holds me back and lets me go
Whatever I do I don't let my lifeline stray.
So it goes as lifetimes pass from heart to mind and back again
My restlessness becomes a flame letting my lifeline show.
She stood by the boundless tide afraid to ride, afraid to hide
Lettin' her conscience be her guide, needing a lifeline so.
I was in some aimless state where lovers meet while angels wait
With gifts of time they hesitate, all on a sunny day.
She lived by the bounding main, from Baltimore I took a train
An east coast lady lit my flame, all on a summer's day.
There's a lifeline in my soul and it holds me back and lets me go
I'm in love so I've been told, letting the lifeline stay.
I've got a heartline in the air and if you listen for me you'll find me there
Whatever I do I don't let my lifeline stray
