Austin Lounge Lizards - The Other Shore

Song Rating: 9.35/10

Song lyrics:

As we reach the twilight hours of our fleeting earthly time
And know we will not see the sun tomorrow
We may think with deep regret of all the things we leave behind
But oh, my friends, do not give in to sorrow

/ dg d dg d / dg a dg d / :

On the other shore, on the other shore
We will reunite with all the things we ever owned before
Our single socks will all be to their rightful pairs restored
Well meet all our possessions on the other shore

/ dg d dg d / dg d - a / dg d - g / g d da d /

As we near those golden sidewalks floating on the clouds above
Assuming heaven is our destination
We may glance behind for one last look at everything we love
But truly theres no call for reservations

On the other shore, on the other shore


Well have piles and piles of jeans we cant fit into anymore
Well wear all those crazy cowboy shirts we got from Fred Labour
Well meet all our possessions on the other shore

Well find books we bought in college and sold for half-price unread
And sacks and sacks of earring backs lost under someones bed
And baseball cards and army men and model planes galore
And every tiny plastic high-heel Barbie ever wore

/ gc g gc d / dg d dg a / :

On the other shore, on the other shore
Well have giant storage units free of charge for evermore
Where our tax receipts will all be saved in bags upon the floor
Well meet all our possessions

On the other shore, on the other shore
Well find National Geographics from 1974
Our childrens art will cover Gods refrigerator door
Well meet all our possessions on the other shore
