Love In Decline
Written by: Jimmy Buffett, Will Jennings & Michael Utley
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Riddles In The Sand (1984)

Lyrics:
Left one in the drizzling rain
Found one on the morning plane
Leaving out his well-known line
Bought her some gin – that did her in
Now they're making love behind the occupied sign

Chorus
Just a living example of love in decline
Looking so hard and so little time
Going ninety to nothing and flying stone blind
Just a living example of love in decline

Miami hotel disco bar
He asked if she's a movie star
Her eyes light and up – they're going far
No time for a room it happened to soon
Now they're making love in her rental car
Just a living example of love in decline

Chorus:
That's just another example of love in decline
Lookin' so hard and so little time
Goin' ninety to nothin' and flyin' stone blind
Just a livin' example of love in decline

Red-eyed on a midnight flight
He's a little tired but she looks just right
He asks for dark so she hits the light
Engines whine – seats recline
They're makin' love till the mornin' light

Chorus:
Just a shinin' example of love in decline
Lookin' so hard and so little time
Goin' ninety to nothin' and flyin' stone blind
Just a livin' example of love in decline

Just a livin' example of love in decline
Just a livin' example of love in decline
