sacred songs lyrics – hall & oates

i like to read and i like to write

but you could persuade me to put the book down tonight

just please don’t ask to be a song heroine

it’s not that easy just to stick you in, stick you in

oh babe, i know you’re right

but there’s no time and it’s not the night

i’d have to face you again and again

although you know i’d like to stick you in, stick you in

they’re all sacred songs

they’re not easily won

you know the words just seem to live on

the thoughts are sacred

though the sound is profane

but this and that you know they’re

one and the same

one and the same

one and the one and the same

you never know how you’re gonna end

i start out hard and i end up thin

you waste your time but you occasionally score

but you can’t tell from what went down before, down before

oh babe, do you see my point?

there’s just no time and it’s not the night

i’d have to face you again and again

although you know i’d like to stick it in, stick it in

they’re all sacred songs

they’re not easily won

you know the words just seem to live on

the thoughts are sacred

though the sound is profane

but this and that you know they’re

one and the same

one and the same

one and the one and the same
