Mr. Rock and Roll

Album: This Is The Life (2007)
Charted: 12
  • So 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
    He's on his own again

    Rock chick of the century
    Is acting like she used to be
    Dancing like there's no one there
    Before she never seemed to care
    Now she wouldn't dare
    It's so rock and roll to be alone

    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say "I wish I was something more"
    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

    Mrs Black and White
    She's never seen a shade of gray
    Always something on her mind
    Every single day
    But now she's lost her way
    And where does she go from here

    Mr Multicultural
    Sees all that one can see
    He's living proof of someone
    Very different to me
    But now he wants to be free
    Free so he can see

    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say "I wish I was something more"
    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

    He says "I wish I knew you, I wish I met you
    When time was still on my side"
    She'll say " I wish I knew you, I wish I loved you
    Before I was his bride"

    And so they must depart
    Too many more are broken hearts
    But I've seen that all before
    In TV, books and film and more
    And there's a happy ending
    Every single day

    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say "I wish I was something more"
    And they'll meet one day
    Far away
    And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"
