The Mighty Lemon Drops- Out of hand



This band was among my faves in the late 80's and early 90's. Heck, they still are. I remember feeling just the way this song portrays practically all the time. I sure wish I could re-live those years. They didn't have to be so hard. Its taken me a lifetime to figure out what life is all about. I wish I had just found a spiritually mature person and asked. I reckon I was usually too wasted to look somebody in the eye and ask the right questions. I had to do it all on my own I thought. I am happy with where I am now spiritually... I just wish I wasn't middle aged and just now "got it".

Lyrics:

When I close my eyes I see forever
In between the good and bad I’ll be there

Somewhere
Over my head
Something
I have not said

Think I’ve lost my grip
It’s out of my hands
Slipped between my fingers
Out of my hands

Took so long to get it and I know it
Everything I wanted I’d have been it

So far
Out of my hand
So close
That I can’t find it

Think I’ve lost my grip
It’s out of my hands
Slipped between my fingers
Out of my hands

I’ve seen things I’ve shouldn’t have seen
Now they live inside me
I’ve seen things through open doors
Now I know what lives are for

Somewhere
Over my head
Something
I have not said

Think I’ve lost my grip
It’s out of my hands
Slipped between my fingers
Out of my hands

Think I’ve lost my grip
It’s out of my hands
Slipped between my fingers
Out of my hands

If I remember right it was in Washington D.C. one night where I saw this band play. I was making out with some chick that night in the rain slick alley out the back of the club. There were a couple of rats scampering around nearby. It was pure magic for an underworld dweller like I was. I felt like the King of Rockinopolis. Of course it was nothing but an existential buzz.
