The Song We Were Singing

Album: Flaming Pie (1997)
  • For a while, we could sit, smoke a pipe
    And discuss all the vast intricacies of life
    We could jaw through the night
    Talk about a range of subjects, anything you like
    Oh, yeah

    But we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time
    Yeah, we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time

    Take a sip, see the world through a glass
    And speculate about the cosmic solution
    To the sound, blue guitars
    Caught up in a philosophical discussion
    Oh, yeah

    But we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time
    Yeah, we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time

    For a while, we could sit, smoke a pipe
    And discuss all the vast intricacies of life
    Yeah, we could jaw through the night
    Talk about a range of subjects, anything you like

    But we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time
    Yeah, we always came back to the song we were singing
    At any particular time

    Yeah, we always came back

    Take a sip, see the world through a glass
    And speculate about the cosmic solution
    To the sound, blue guitars
    Caught up in a philosophical discussion
    Oh, yeah

    But we always came back to the songs we were singing
    At any particular time
    Yes, we always came back to the songs we were singing
    At any particular time
    Yeah

    We always came back
    To the songs we were singing Writer/s: Paul McCartney
