PostSubject: "Etta James" lyrics   Thu Feb 08, 2018 7:26 pm

Did you spend most of your life waiting
On a fairy tale read between pages?
Did you huddle up close to your boombox radio
To somebody waiting on the same song?

And we sold our souls on the fantasies
We found in records and black-and-white movies
And I used to beg June to burn me alive
If that would get me anywhere but here

Now, Etta James, hit that symphony
'Cause she drifts through my blood like a remedy
And for most of my sad life
I figured I was gonna die alone

'Cause I just burn in the curve of my scars
Twenty long years away from your heart
'Til finally, finally, my love is in my arms
My love is in my arms

And it was impossible to hold onto anything
In my chest was a lonesome growing cyclone
I kept pictures taped up to the rearview above
To the sirens I lost in the ocean

And all we wanted was absolutely everything
Like foolish, hungry young lions
I was lost and alone, a million light years from home
It was nobody's fault but mine

Now, Etta James, hit that symphony
'Cause she drifts through my blood like a remedy
And for most of my sad life
I figured I was gonna die alone

'Cause I just burn in the curve of my scars
Twenty long years away from your heart
But finally, finally, my love is in my arms

Was there a hole in your life?
Did you kill to keep warm, but somehow never quite satisfy?
Do you feel like it's always time to go?
And it's always wrong, and it's always off, and it's hard to know which heart to hold

Now do you lie to someone, someone else on your mind
Do you lie to someone, with me on your mind?

Now, Etta James, hit that symphony
'Cause she drifts through my blood like a remedy
And for most of my sad life
I figured I was gonna die alone

'Cause I just burn in the curve of my scars
Twenty long years away from your heart
'Til finally, finally, my love is in my arms
My love is in my arms

{Etta James, Etta James, Etta James, sing it one time for me, baby}

Ooooh, ooooh

{Etta James, Etta James, Etta James, sing it one time for me, baby}

At last, at last

{Etta James, Etta James, Etta James, sing it one time for me, baby}

At last, at last

{Etta James, Etta James, Etta James, sing it one time for me}

Like Etta said, my love has come along
