Rolling Stone

Album: Surrender (2015)
  • In fair Verona where we lay our scene
    Juliet is on her knees
    She shoots to kill and aims to please, oh

    And you can see it in her eyes
    It's not something that she likes
    But she can't stand being alone
    So you thank her for her charm
    And you take her in your arms
    But she just won't let you go

    She said her daddy was an alcoholic
    And her mother was an animal
    Now she's living like a rolling stone
    She said that the law will never take her alive
    If they take her home

    In Belarus she was a vespertine
    She danced the go-go for the bourgeosie
    Now she's here and she is on her knees, oh-oh

    And she won't apologize
    For the cheating and the lies
    But she can't stand being this way
    And you can see it in her eyes
    She would kill them if they try
    To send her back to her grave

    She said her daddy was an alcoholic
    And her mother was an animal
    Now she's living like a rolling stone
    She said that the law will never take her alive
    If they take her home

    Rolling stone, rolling stone (she keeps on living like a)
    Rolling stone, rolling stone (she keeps on living like a)

    She said her daddy was an alcoholic
    And her mother was an animal
    Now she's living like a rolling stone
    She said that the law will never take her alive
    If they take her home

    They'll never take her alive if they take her home
    They'll never take her alive if they take her home Writer/s: ADAM ANDERSON, THEO HUTCHCRAFT, JONAS QUANT
