​Sacred Songs

This song is by Daryl Hall and appears on the album Sacred Songs (1980).

I like to read and I like to write
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
Tho' 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, so thin
You waste your time
But occasionally score
But you can't tell
From what went 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
Because there's nothing
Sacred anymore
The thought can still be
But 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
