Noah And The Whale - L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. Lyrics




Lisa likes brandy and the way it hits her lips
She's a rock 'n' roll survivor with pendulum hips
She's got deep brown eyes
That've seen it all

Working at a nightclub that was called The Avenue
The bar men used to call her "Little Lisa, Loney Tunes"
She went down on almost anyone

From the hard time living 'til the Chelsea days
From when her hair was sweet blonde 'til the day it turned gray
She said:

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You've got more than money and sense, my friend
You've got heart and you're going your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don't have now will come back again
You've got heart and you're going your own way

Some people wear their history like a map on their face
And Joey was an artist just living out of case
But his best work was his letters home

Extended works of fiction about imaginary success
The chorus girls in neon were his closest things to friends
But to a writer, the truth is no big deal

From the hard time living to the sleepless nights
And the black and blue body from the weekend fights
He'd say:

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You've got more than money and sense, my friend
You've got heart and you're going your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don't have now will come back again
You've got heart and you're going your own way

[Bridge]
On my last night on earth, I want to look to the sky
Just breathe in the air and blink in the light
On my last night on earth, I'll pay a high price
To have no regrets and be done with my life

[Chorus]
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You've got more than money and sense, my friend
You've got heart and you're going your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don't have now will come back again
You've got heart and you're going your own way
[repeat]

  9. Destruction Slayer

    Feelin good vibes

  10. Aimee Birkett Sings

    Omg what a throwback. I used to listen to this when I was 5. This has always been my all-time favourite song

  11. Hansel Tobar

    I’m here for 2020 Decade choise by Spotify.

  12. TomcatJones

    I met him in a swamp down in dagobah, Where it bubbles all the time ... dont you come around here no more...

    Nice mash up

  13. cordellscott

    I met her in a club down in old Soho
    Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like
    Coca Cola
    C-O-L-A Cola
    She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
    I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
    L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Perlitha Izaguirre

    Right! The kinks...

  14. Marc PE

  15. Alpha Delfa

    Binging some classics from the 2010s to finish the decade off right, even though it's the end of an era L I F E G O E S ON

  16. Woolust

    This song was the one that defined 2019 for me according to my Spotify and I'm actually not upset with it.. This year has been more downs then ups and so many times I've felt awful but, I'm still here and while I've lost more than I've gained, I appreciate what I have because otherwise I'd be so lost and maybe wouldn't of survived this year. There for, Life goes on indeed. Thank you music for the comfort you can provide that nothing and no one else can.

    10/12/19
    I'll remember to look at this if I ever feel like this again so I can reflect on this year and see while it wasn't the best, I survived and lived through it.

    gabriele zonca

    Also up and up

  17. Denise Christie

    I stumbled on this song while watching "The Graham Norton Show". Such a great tune.

  18. watsonstudios11

    Total Tom Petty rip-off.

  19. Joe Thorp

    Was insanely tempted to go L.O.L.A Loooolllaaaa

  20. Connie Soutar

    Best song, feeling super nostalgic ahah

  21. JDMime

    Sounds like a song about artists with day jobs . . .those of us who couldn't afford to go to art school (had to be practical and kill our souls)

    JDMime

    The best artists in the world are actually doing something else because they didn't come from rich families and had to have jobs to pay off debt after school. Unfortunately, the world will never know because we embrace empty headed rich kids like Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran who could go after their dreams because they knew they would never starve if they failed. Now the world suffers from mediocrity and a lack of great art because we embrace singing shows of rich kids who paid for voice lessons. If you can't write you aren't actually a musician. Same with science and medicine. Doctors have to come from rich families to afford medical school. I never felt like any doctor I've had since med school was so expensive actually gave a shit about me. When you make things expensive, only the rich can afford to stay rich . . .the true nerds are blocked from having the lives they want because it's a popularity contest of mediocrity now. Thanks for making it impossible to have great art and geniuses in the world. We will now only have mediocrity in every category. we will never have a renaissance again.

  22. Brett Whitehead

    i dont even know how i found this band anymore, i think this was the first song - then five years, then i bought all four albums and savoured each of them. i listen to them all every month, i make a point to do so.
    but the point isnt how i found them, the point is that i did find them, or maybe they found me. i know they're no longer a band, but their music will remain forever and life does go on, and its bittersweet. but my god, i am so thankful for this song. this band. this music and my life right now in this moment.

  69. Alton Coasters
