Heavy and Rolling

Album: Uptown Special (2015)

  • Start up the engine, we're heavy and rolling
    A tank full of gas and the night is young
    I don't know you, don't care where you're going
    To the Highline or the heart of the sun

    My sweet companion is long as the summer
    Black as the river and built to glide
    Smooth as glass, smooth as Marcus Miller
    Cold as ice when you climb inside

    When the city's flowing
    I found a way to move my weary soul
    Ridin' straight and low
    Stay heavy and rolling

    You deal in ducats, you deal in illusion
    Pay for pleasure with your pretty face
    You, confused war and prostitution
    In my starship I sail freely through space

    When the city's flowing
    I found a way to move my weary soul
    Ridin' straight and low
    Stay heavy and rolling

    I was lost and lonely like you
    Hollow-eyed and broken inside
    Then I found something lasting and true
    A beautiful ride

    Might have to wait to start in on your drinking
    All of Hell's Kitchen's standing in that line
    I'll be here living in my Lincoln
    Occupying space and conquering time

    When the city's flowing
    I found a way to move my weary soul
    Ridin' straight and low
    Stay heavy and rolling Writer/s: Mark Ronson, Jeffrey Bhasker, Michael Chabon, Andrew Wyatt
