Our Whole Lives is a song off of Heaven is Whenever.

Lyrics Edit

The kids are ripping into sugar packets
Townies taking off their tavern jackets
I'm in the pews putting bills into the baskets
Praying that they're cool when I come pick up the package

Tonight we're gonna have a really good time
But I wanna go to heaven on the day I die
Gonna make like a preemptive strike
Hit the 5:30 mass on a Saturday night

Ring ring ring goes the telephone
Tell my little lambs that I'm on my way home
Stop by the shop and get a bottle to go
Maybe something stronger if the right guy's on the corner

Bang bang bang go the quarter notes
Saint Theresa told me we should rattle our bones
Now you're going off to the dial tone
Some kid started blowing on a saxophone

Cheerleaders dream of quarterbacks
Jock jills go for jumping jacks
Goth girls go to vampire bats
They want to draw a little blood for the bath

Well I don't go much for that spooky stuff
I like the lights and the uptempo tracks
You're damn right I believe in love
Because I've been in love and I loved right back

Bang bang bang goes the backing track
Some kid's coming round with a magic backpack
I didn't know you could dance like that
I'm gonna have to ask you to take two steps back

Sing sing sing every song we know
We're blowing out the speakers on your stereo
You finally stopped talking to that boy back home
Maybe that's just better if you want you can sleep over

We're good guys but we can't be good every night
We're good guys but we can't be good our whole lives
We're good guys but we can't be good all the time
Father I have sinned and I want to do it all again tonight

The townies taking off their tavern jackets
Making guitars out of tennis rackets
It's been getting so the that hardest part
Is trying to talk some sense into our sparkling hearts

Ring ring ring goes the telephone
Tell my little lambs that I ain't comin home
Yes yes yes go the majorettes
They lead the band onto the field with their cigarettes

Bang bang bang she's a cleaning freak
She scrubs the surface till it's sparling
Neat neat neat til her fingers bleed
She was giving off blue light on the first night that she came to me

We're good guys but we can't be good every night
We're good guys but we can't be good our whole lives
We're good guys but we can't be good every night
We're good guys but we can't be good our whole lives

She was getting awfully light on the first night that she came to me
Father I have sinned and I'm gonna do it all again eventually


Note: Craig has been playing around with the lyrics from night to night, so any transcription will not be final. For instance, in the first performance, the second line mentions "starter jackets", whereas in later versions the townies have "tavern jackets."

Analysis Edit

Both Our Whole Lives and Going on a Hike refer to majorettes.
