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
