Rafferty, Gerry - Life Goes On Lyrics




You get a thunderbolt from out of the blue
And it changes everything about the life you knew
Yes the storm breaks and your heart aches
And then life goes on.

When a long time love just disappears
You need someone new to help you through those impatient years
And those sad days, all those mad days
While your life goes on.

You know it's over but you can't let go
It's not easy when it comes to saying all those last goodbyes
In that moment when your dreams lie scattered in the dust
You find something you can trust
Love comes to meet you like a brand new day
Love comes to you all along the way.

You're walking down the street but you're lost in space
And the future comes to meet you and you like its face
From a blue note comes a new note
And your life goes on.

You don't need miracles to point the way
When you know that love is still the reason to believe
In that moment when you know you might have given up
Someone fills your lovin' cup
And lies beside you ‘til the break of day
Love comes to you all along the way.

A million stars shine in the darkest night
From across the universe there comes eternal light
From this blue world to a new world
Somewhere life goes on.

Life goes on...
Life goes on...

  4. Wulfgar

    Gerry Rafferty never cared about fame or the celebrity life style, all he ever wanted was respect for his talent and songs. He also never trusted the music industry and look what they're doing now. Most of the artists today are completely manufactured, they might as well just stepped off a fucking conveyor belt. In 40 years time people won't even remember Justin Bieber, One Direction or Miley Cyrus, their music is bland and forgettable. All the proper bands played in bars and clubs for years trying to clinch a record deal, they don't go on some crappy talent show get it handed to them on a silver platter!

    As for myself this your new song lacks of an important musical condiment , which was the chinese trumpet sound, which made out of me a maniac lover of your " Baker Street". I wich you more success Gerry. I am 63, one year older then You and a cubanamerican living in Colombia. I found out of this new album of yours in Wikipedia to investigate if you are still alive. Good luck!
