Dull Passion

Lyrics and music: Rex Potam



I think it was only yesterday
I could climb mountains and hail marmots
Run back to the cottage for cheese and nuts
And sleep the night away

I think of only one way
I could see mountains and watch marmots
Stay warm in the cottage with ham, not nuts
And watch TV all day

Life passes as a slow blink
Passion dulls faster than you think
But still — if you had to start over
Would you think you’d do better?

It was just yesterday I met you
Wait — no, that was two decades ago
We ran hand in hand through streams and meadows
And danced the night away

It was just yesterday I met you
Yeah, kids are grown, two decades gone
We go hand in hand through life and lawn
And watch the shows all day

Life passes as a slow blink
Passion dulls faster than you think
But still — if you had to start over
Would you think you’d do better?

Tomorrow we will still be together
Alone hand in hand towards the end
Cheese, nuts, ham, marmots, streams and meadows
We’ll leave the scene away

Life passes as a slow blink
Passion dulls faster than you think
But still — if you had to start over
Would you think you’d do better?
