Livin’ Thing

Sailin’ away on the crest of a wave
It’s like magic
Rollin’ and ridin’ and slippin’ and slidin’
It’s magic

And you, and your sweet desire
You took me higher and higher
It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose
(I’m taking a dive…)

Making believe this is what you conceived
From your worst day
(I’m taking a dive)
Moving in line then you look back in time
To the first day
(I’m taking… I’m taking…)

And you, and your sweet desire
(don’t you do it… don’t you do it…)
You took me higher and higher
It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose
(I’m takin’ a dive… oh, the slide…)

Takin’ a dive ’cause you can’t halt the slide
floating downstream
(I’m taking a dive)
So let her go, don’t start spoiling the show
It’s a bad dream
(I’m taking… I’m taking…)

And you, and your sweet desire
(don’t you do it… don’t you do it…)
You took me higher and higher
It’s a livin’ thing
It’s a terrible thing to lose
It’s a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

(apologies to Jeff Lynne)
