- LyricsOh, the wind whistles down the cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder each one better than before
- LyricsSo called Mr Rock And Roll
Is dancing on his own again
Talking on his phone again
To someone who tells him that his balance is low
He's got no where to go
- LyricsA poetic genius is something I don't see
Why would a genius be tripping on me?
And he's looking at me now but what he can't see
Is that I'm looking through his eyes, so many lies behind his eyes
And tell me stories from your past
- LyricsWill you tell me when the lights are fading?
'Cause I can't see, I can't see no more
Will you tell me when the song stops playing?
'Cause I can't hear, I can't hear no more
She said, "I don't know what you're living for"
- LyricsPut a ribbon 'round my neck and call me a libertine
I will sing you songs of dreams I used to dream
I will sail away on seas of silver and gold
Until I reach my home
Give me a guitar and I'll be your troubadour
