Living Lux

  • Lyrics
  • Shyness invaded
    On the Champs-Élysées
    The world was ours then
    I had conviction
    But you, you had style
    Such a lethal combination
    The years changed us
    The money weighed us down
    We lost our way
    Let me spoil you
    Pick a place to go
    I want to spend my money on you

    And don't you remember
    How this began?
    You begged me for a chance
    Don't waste your sorry
    No, don't waste your goodbyes
    Tonight
    From hand to mouth and now
    We're living lux

    I ordered a lobster
    And you, them away
    The waitress thinks that we can't pay, no
    What does she know?
    Our pockets are full-grown
    And we've earned the right to fine dine
    So raise your glass
    My old friend
    For we both know
    That this is the end
    For the times we fought
    And the times we shared
    I'll sing you a song
    The way I used to then

    Don't you remember?
    How this began?
    You begged me for a chance
    Don't waste your sorry
    No, don't waste your goodbyes
    Tonight
    From hand to mouth and now
    We're living lux
    We're living luxWriter/s: RUSSELL LISSACK, KELE OKEREKE
