Steve Winwood - The Finer Things Lyrics




While there is time
Let's go out and feel everything
If you hold me
I will let you into my dream
For time is a river rolling into nowhere
We must live while we can
And we'll drink our cup of laughter

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

Oh, I've been sad
And have walked bitter streets alone
And come morning
There's a good wind to blow me home
So time is a river rolling into nowhere
I will live while I can
I will have my ever after

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

We go so fast, why don't we make it last
Life is glowing inside you and me
Please take my hand, here where I stand
Won't you come out and dance with me
Come see, with me, come see

And lovers try
'Til they get the best of the night
And come morning
They are tangled up in the light
So time be a river rolling into nowhere
They love while they can
And they think about the night so sweet

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

    Oh and back when a record payed the bills and a concert only cost $17 per person cause the artist wasn't starving from the streaming services stealing their music.

  15. TigerAudioInc

    Love the hiss man. Makes me feel young again, even though I'm only 48. I was recording on multitrack cassettes when this was new and mixing on a 4 channel mixer doing over dubs. SSSSSS

  16. Fankston Winston

    This a BADLY re-edited version of the original--Could someone out there find the original--and remove this abortion.


    How do I know--I am 74 and saw and clearly remember the original--THIS AIN"T IT

    I'll listen to this song on my complete long plane trip from Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit pen pals in Phenix City, Alabama. I'll have to forward my time 2 hours ahead from Mountain Time Zone to Eastern Time Zone. Phenix City is in Eastern Time Zone due to being of Columbus, Georgia Metropolitan Area. Phenix City is Alabama's easternmost and Eastern Time Zone's westernmost.
