Rollerblades

  • I know you say you're ready to change
    But I need to get it down on paper
    It's in your face you're ready to blame
    The first guy in line to catch the train

    I'll save your seat
    'Cause you don't stand for what you preach

    You're singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean,
    Do you know what you want?
    While beating up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades
    Rolling on moving on

    It's time to take the time to create
    'Cause you're running late the doors are closing
    So tip your hat and you might get back
    Whatever you need is up ahead
    This train won't stop for anybody to get off

    You're singing with a broken string tell me what you really mean
    Do you know what you want?
    While beating up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades
    Rolling on moving on
    You're singing with a broken string tell me what you really mean
    Do you know what you want?
    Do you know, oh no

    We got to run with it
    It will get better
    And that leaves we're stuck together
    Make your mind up
    Know what you need to say before you shout at me
    So take your seat 'cause standing only wears out feet

    You're singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
    Do you know what you want?
    You're beating up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades
    Rolling on, moving on
    You're singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
    Do you know what you want?
    Beating up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades
    Rolling on, moving on
    Do you know what you want? Writer/s: ELIZA CAIRD, CRAIG DODDS, JONATHAN SHARP
