"Keep Hanging On" lyrics - HUSKER DU

"Keep Hanging On"

Only angels have wings, girl
And poets have all the words
The earth belongs to the two of us
And the sky belongs to the birds
You've given me so much happiness
That I'll wrap up and give you this song
You gotta grab it with both hands
You gotta keep hanging on...

The cat walks to the window
And I hear the key turn in the door
Know one knows and anything goes
And everything falls on the floor
The apartment starts shaking
And the roof opens up to the sun
The crows flying in parallel lines
And golly, isn't this great fun?

Laying in each other's arms
We're sleepy, begin to nod
And we start to dream of grandiose things
Oh god, oh god, oh god
You gotta keep hanging on
