Song Lyrics

Written by Dennis DeYoung and Tommy Shaw

Lead Vocals by Dennis DeYoung

Yeah yeah!

Don`t look now, but here come the eightees!

I was so cool back in sixty-five

I had it made `cause I understood what to do to survive

I had my car, and I made the scene

Didn`t give a damn about no gasoline

They can go to hell

My friend we never thought about the world

And its realities

The promised land was ours

We were the Great Society

I`m so confused by the things I read, I need the truth

But the truth is, I don`t know who to believe

The left say yes, and the right says no

I`m in between and the more I learn

Well, the less that I know

I got to make a show

Livin` high, living fine

Livin` high on borrowed time

Yes! No!

Yes! No!

No! Yes!

No! Yes!

Faith be with me now

I`m just a dreamer in a dreamland

Faith be with me now

I`m just a dreamer in a dreamland

`Cause we`re

Livin` high

Livin` fine (You know I`m livin` fine)

Livin` high (Yes I`m livin` high)

On borrowed time (On borrowed time)

Livin` high (Whoohoo!)

Livin` fine (Ahhh!)

Livin` high

On Lake Shore Drive (Midnight ride)

Livin` high (We`re livin` high)

On Leslie Lane (Let`s go back and play it again!)

Livin` high (We`re livin` high)

On Red Bud Trail (On Red Bud, Red Bud Trail!)

Livin` high

On Central Drive (He`s on Central Drive!)

Livin` high (We`re livin`, livin` high)

On Prestwick Drive (Catch me on Prestwick Drive!...)

Livin` high (...gettin` in and drivin` my Mercedes...)

Livin` fine (...up and down and up and down -- sh*t! I don`t....)
