The Remains of Rock and Roll

Album: After The Disco (2014)
  • It's too long to wait around for everyone to decide
    I'm off to the promised land if anyone needs a ride
    It's a small car but we'll fit inside if we leave our bags behind
    We'll entertain ourselves just watching the world go by

    Is something wrong?
    You don't look like you're having fun
    The road is long
    Gotta let go the things you love

    We prefer good love to go
    And the remains of rock & roll
    When the moment's right
    In the middle of the night
    We can almost see the way to go

    So long to everyone 'cause they don't know who we are
    Turn on your sorry but you have to break their hearts
    Sister you're old enough to take the wheel and drive
    Your hands, your heart, your eyes, you made me realize

    I hear your call
    All of my senses are turned on
    We're on our own
    Suddenly earth is far below

    We good your love to go
    And the remains of rock & roll
    When the moment's right
    In the middle of the night
    We can almost see the way to go

    Can't you see me floating forwards backwards
    Won't you lend a hand and help me out
    Here beyond the doorstep knocking knocking
    Won't you lend a hand and help me out
