Combination

  • The street is cold, the dawn is grey
    My heart says no but my head says stay
    My work is finished, or so I've been told
    Can't part the three of us, once we got a hold

    I forgot the name
    I took a shot on the chin
    I'm rearranging my game
    Tell by the shape I'm in

    In line of fire, you know what to say
    They gave us no choices, just one shade of grey
    My legs keep movin', I don't seem to stray
    But I know each step we take, they're one step away

    I found the secret, the key to the vault
    We walked in darkness, kept hittin' the walls
    I took the time, to feel for the door
    I found the secret, the key to it all

    I got the Nouveauree
    And dragged it home to bed
    I traded you for me
    I took it all and said

    I find my own fun,
    Sometimes for free
    I got to pay it to come lookin' for me
    Walkin' on Gucci
    Wearin' Yves Saint Laurent
    Barely stay on 'cause I'm so God damn gaunt

    I found the secret, the key to the vault
    We walked in darkness, kept hittin' the walls
    I took the time, to feel for the door
    I found the secret, the key to it all Writer/s: JOE PERRY

  • Somebody from Somewhere Joe Perry is definitely not singing lead vocal. Some harmony. Love Joe but he ain’t singing lead.
  • Mike Pellegrini from BiloxiGreat song and genius lyrics! Gotta love the Aerosmith gang! Still rocking hard!
  • Christopher from Albuquerque, NmThere's a lyric in the song "Walking on Gucci, wearing Yves St. Laurant, barely stay on 'cause I'm so goddam gaunt". Great lyrics, fantastic song, and Joey Kramer's drum work at the end is everything I love about Hard Rock.
  • Tom from Blaine, MnUnderrated?? It's consistently cited as Aerosmith's best album, or possibly second best right after "Toys In The Attic". No, it didn't have big hits on it, but I think most respectable rock music fans recognize this as one of their top shelf albums. As for the song, I always thought it sounded like Aerosmith doing The Police several years before anyone knew who The Police were.
  • Homer from Springfield, KyYeah, Rocks.................uh....rocks. This is a great song.
  • Markus from La, CaActually this is sung by Joe and Steven.
  • Ozzi from Brookhaven, Pawhat a great song from an awesome underrated album. the Album 'rocks' by aerosmith is so underrated and one of the best even though it doesnt have many hits
