Indigo Girls’s Life’s So Strange Lyrics

Cold black coffee, incessant stream of cars
Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fistful of grey stars
Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground
Today the rain’s just water – it won’t stop from falling down.
I get weary waiting for my muse
But in between the times she comes
I still have to tie my shoes
And get on with my day
There are mornings when I’m with (?)
And there are days I have to take the bus.
Life’s so rich…
Life’s so empty…
Secret rendezvous, long distance from a phone booth
Like two players in a mystery straight out of our youth
Well I’m finding that dramatics have lost their old appeal
I play the part of stoic lover, but I’m not sure how I feel
I get discouraged waiting for the world
To understand this love affair
To understand the girl
There are mornings when Amelia’s right beside me
The next thing I know, I taste the salt of the sea.
Life’s so rich…
Life’s so empty…
Cold black coffee, incessant stream of cars
Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fistful of grey stars
Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground
Today the rain’s just water – it won’t stop from falling down.
As I grow weary, I’m waiting for the world
To understand this love affair
To understand the girl
There are mornings when Amelia’s right beside me
The next thing I know, I taste the salt of the sea.
Life’s so rich…
Life’s so empty…
Life’s so strange
