Maccabees, The - Pelican Lyrics




So soon we're too old to carry
We knew we only had a little while
In the middle keep ticking over
Before you know it, parent a parent

To have it all and still want more
One things for sure we're all getting older
So we take a lover waiting in the corner
Before you know it, pushing up the daisies

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know its the ever and the more
And again and again and again

In the end nothing comes easy
So you find a way to take a little with you
For the ones you love, there if they need to
Pharaoh, they're not coming with you.

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know its the ever and the more
And again and again and again

So soon we're too old to carry
We knew we only had a little while
In the middle keep ticking over
Before you know it, parent a parent

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know its the ever and the more
And again and again and again

  32. Fabricio Herrera

    So soon we, so soon we
    So soon we're too old to carry
    And we knew it, and we knew it
    And we knew we only had a little while
    In the middle, in the middle
    In the middle just keep ticking over
    Before you know it, before you know it
    Before you know it parent's a parent

    To have it all, to have it all
    To have it all and still want more
    One thing's for sure, one thing's for sure
    One thing's for sure we're all getting older
    So we take a lover, so we take a lover
    So we take a lover waiting in the corner
    And before you know it, before you know it,
    Before you know it, pushing up the daisies

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know it's the ever and the more
    And again and again and again we go

    In the end, In the end
    In the end nothing comes easy
    So you find a way, so you find a way
    So you find a way to take a little with you
    For the ones you love, for the ones you love
    For the ones you love there's if they need too
    Pharaoh, pharaoh
    Pharaoh they're not coming with you.

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know it's the ever and the more
    And again and again and again

    So soon we, so soon we
    So soon we're too old to carry
    And we knew it, and we knew it
    Abd we knew we only had a little while
    In the middle, in the middle
    In the middle just keep ticking over
    Before you know it, before you know it
    Before you know it parent's a parent

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know it's the ever and the more
    And again and again and again

    Fabricio Herrera so I’m doing a show at the moment and this is our opening number. I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve heard this song and until I saw your comment I legit thought this song was in gibberish.

    can any fellow fans please help me?

    me and my fiancee bought 2 maccabees tickets on the day they were released last year for the Friday the 30th of june.

    now our close friends are getting married on that day, it would mean so much if someone out there somewhere would trade 2 Friday tickets for 2 Saturday tickets?

    it's a long shot but my fiancee genuinely cried when she realised that we couldn't go.

    please help us.
    and thank you.
