O.A.R. (Of A Revolution) - My Life Lyrics

she takes it deep to her heart
right from the start
she talks softly over a glass of whine

now and again
she is more than a friend
but don't you just throw me a line

say now it would be great
if she'd dedicate
just a minute from her precious time

said i'll give it a while
but thats not my style
now how is that a crime

everyone says that i'm wild
pardon my french but i still know my child
and that wasn't it
i told her i needed some time from her daddy-o

i began walking
while she was still talkin
lookin for an exit sign

pardon my face
but i am leaving no trace
cause i really haven't got the time

well i began thinking
and my heart is just sinking
looking for a place to go

well isn't it bad
how she'll treats you so bad
and u never really let her know

well everyone says that shes cryin
but i can't forget all the tiem i spent tryin
and that wasn't it
i told her i needed some time from her daddy-o

and i know i know
what it feels like to be alone
i say now i know i know
what it feels like to be at home

i say i like i like
stoping to say hello
said its my life my life my life
why can't we take this slow, why can't we take this slow

why can't we take this slow

now i been thro the phases
and i walked thro the mazes
i'm sick and just a little tired

i'm sure it isn't fair
but i'm not aware
of the patience thats required

if i could have kissed her
everytime that i misses her
i wouldn't be out the door

but now and again
i sure need a friend
now isn't that what shes for

everyone says that i'm lyin
but i can't forget all the times she was cryin
and that wasn't it
i told her i need some time from her daddy-o

and i know i know
what it feels like to be alone
i say now i know i know
what it feels like to be at home

i say i like i like
stoping to say hello
said its my life my life my life
why can't we take this slow, why can't we take this slow

baby take this slow
its my life my life
why can't we take this slow

  6. Rose

    I asked mom to leave the room. The priest gave you last rights. I knew I couldn’t bring you home. It’s the only promise I ever broke to you. Pop you left with a piece of my heart leaving your shoes I can not fill. I miss you, all the time... 01-15-2019

  7. Dayna Hicks

    I came across this song on the way home from work today. This song hits home. I tragically lost my identical twin sister 3 months ago. I have lived my entire life with my sister, my other half and my best friend for 36 years. I do not know what I am going to do without her. She was everything to me. We tragically lost our Mother 9 years ago and we somehow got through the pain and sorrow because we had eachother to lean on. Now, I just feel lost that I do not have her here with me to talk me through this to feel what I am feeling, to cry with me. I miss her so much. I am so grateful to have heard this song.

  24. Reinhart Alvaro

    One of the most tragic and underrated songs of our generation, remember, this song never charted or got any certifications......

    (SPOILER ALERT! Don't click read more)

    Though I thought the whole season was wrapping everything in a nice bow and many enemies/frenemies became amiable and FRIENDS, I still enjoyed the season. It was too happy, too perfect to be realistic but that's what shows are for haha. I especially loved the last two episodes when Mike, Harvey, and Louis (ofc we can't forget Louis) went at each other in court. And the ending interview HAHAHA all the feels... <3

  35. Sara P

    Your song got on the radio when i was eating at McDonald's

  76. JaxStravig

    This song is amazing. But since I first saw yall at a high-school party it was all about the group. This is over-produced for my longest loved band.

  77. jenn barcume

    I can’t get enough of this song. Missing my uncle dearly. Two months with me went by way too fast. There will never be another like you. Rest easy 💙

  78. JacobB477

    I seriously love this album! It's awesome!

  79. John Kirk

    This song opened my eyes and made me realize how much we take life for granted. Every moment is a gift, never forget that. Hug the ones you love and tell them how much they mean to you, because one day you won’t be able to anymore.

  80. Thomas Kane

    This song is to my dad

  81. Cee Magee

    I went looking for a long lost friend who was a drug addict his whole life. I wanted to find his grave so I could visit it. I knew he was dead. To my surprise I found him alive and sober for two years. We speak everyday now. I think of him when I hear this song. Reach out to those you love, so no regrets when they are forced to leave your life one day. Life is beautiful!!!

  82. Dhaniel Sexte

    an Edm remix'?

  83. ronnie lot

    Love this!

  84. Hellou 18

    Just saw you guys last night, was one of my favorite concerts of all time! Can't wait to see you again!!!

  85. Warren Brown

    O.A.R. I found your music back in May 2009. Your first album I listen to was All Sides. Today, your music still awesome! I always reminds me of my high school days growing up with good music. Love you guys! Thanks for making my childhood peaceful. ❤️😊

  86. Caitie Newman

    To my Papa who died from Bladder cancer after exposure from two tours in Vietnam. He was a healthy as a horse and only 63 when he passed. I was only 10 when he passed but I regret not spending more time with him when I was told he was dying. I avoided him at all costs. The night before he passed I had a dream he would die and it happened the next day 3 days before my birthday. Every year is hard to cope with. Me and my family miss him so much.
    R.I.P Robert Earl Newman

    my uncle was a big fan and it came out the day he died

  90. June Lloyd

    this song speaks me, my dear late husband, miss you all the time

  91. PP Nainggolan

    The intro sounds like Creed.

  92. therealgodfather

    I don’t get the video

  93. Jackie Reis

    This is something my dad would write to my step mom who passed

  94. Ramona Middleton

    Autumn and Jesse I miss you two everyday I hope to see you in Heaven!

  95. David Subat

    His voice takes life's pain and lets it go. When he goes low it's wisdom. Then he takes it up higher and it's a freakin' party after learning something; coming to a new and peaceful resolution through the realization of their songs. (in my humble opinion) I find these guitar slurs particularly sweet. Please come back to Summerfest in Milwaukee. I missed these guys not being in the lineup for 2019. Here's to 2020 and beyond...

  96. Michelle Beuter

    My 1st Mother's day without my youngest son 😭💔 I MISS YOU SON ALL THE TIME 😘
