Zevon Warren - The Indifference Of Heaven

rate me

written by Warren Zevon 1993 Zevon Music BMI

Time marches on

Time stands still

Time on my hands

Time to kill

Blood on my hands

And my hands in the till

Down at the 7-11

Gentle rain

Falls on me

All life folds back

Into the sea

We contemplate eternity

Beneath the vast indifference of heaven

The past seems realer than the present to me now

I've got memories to last me

When the sky is gray

The way it is today

I remember the times when I was happy

Same old sun

Same old moon

It's the same old story

Same old tune

They all say

Someday soon

My sins will all be forgiven

Gentle rain

Falls on me

All life folds back

Into the sea

We contemplate eternity

Beneath the vast indifference of heaven

They say "Everything's all right"

They say "Better days are near"

They tell us "These are the good times"

But they don't live around here

Billy and Christie don't--

Bruce and Patti don't--

They don't live around here

I had a girl

Now she's gone

She left town

Town burned down

Nothing left

But the sound

Of the front door closing forever

Gentle rain

Falls on me

All life folds back

Into the sea

We contemplate eternity

Beneath the vast indifference of heaven
