WNL-VII: "I would give my life to live again"

I didn't expect to be throwing Cowboy Mouth at you again so soon. But we have gone a month without any and when you consider the things that have been on my brain lately, now seemed like a good time to feature this song. Don't worry. I have no intention of this becoming Wednesday Night Cowboy Mouth.

Off their 1998 album Mercyland, this week's lyrics are from "Lovers or Friends." (You can hear it online HERE, as someone has used the song in its entirety in a "Paperback Hero" fanvid.)
I reach for your arms but you only give smiles
This has been happening a little while
I say how I feel but you only get riled
Accusing me of being a child

Remember the laughter the night that we met
You flashed me a look that I cannot forget
You dared me to leave but I haven't gone yet
We're giving both as good as we get

You call me honey and I call you baby
You say I'm dumb and I say you're crazy
My memory's clear but the details are hazy
The words come out all wrong

Are we lovers or are we friends
And can we ever be both again
There's a feeling here that never ever ends
I would give my life to live again

Your eyes flitter fast as you cast the first stone
Something 'bout hating being all alone
I try not to hear when your anger is thrown
Or any kind of hurting is shown

I clear my throat when you say you miss me
I drink your lips as you slowly kiss me
Your eyes grow wide but your smile gets misty
I don't know what to do

Are we lovers or are we friends
And can we ever be both again
There's a feeling here that never ever ends
I would give my life to live again

Has anybody seen the one you love
Where is he now

Has anybody seen the one I need
Where is she now

I never saw us parted
You never saw us parted

I watch the wind make the water shimmy
I search for something I feel within me
I go for breath but there isn't any
You took it all away

Are we lovers or are we friends
And can we ever be both again
There's a feeling here that never ever ends
I would give my life...
I would give my life...
I would give my life to live again

Lovers or Friends
Fred LeBlanc
