I live my life in the city
There's no easy way out
The day's moving just too fast for me
I need some time in the sunshine
I gotta slow it right down
The day's moving just too fast for me

I live my life for the stars that shine
People say it's just a waste of time
Then they say I should feed my head
That to me was just a day in bed
I'll take my car and drive real far
They're not concerned about the way we are
In my mind my dreams are real
Now we're concerned about the way I feel

Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star
Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star

I live my life in the city
There's no easy way out
The day's moving just too fast for me
I need some time in the sunshine
I gotta slow it right down
The day's moving just too fast for me

I live my life for the stars that shine
People say it's just a waste of time
Then they say I should feed my head
That to me was just a day in bed
I'll take my car and drive real far
They're not concerned about the way we are
In my mind my dreams are real
Now we're concerned about the way I feel

Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star
Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star
Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star

You're not down with who I am
Look at you now you're all in my hands tonight

Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star
Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star
Tonight I'm a rock 'n' roll star

It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll
It's just rock 'n' roll

I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been
I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticine
Shake along with me!
I've been driving in my car with my friend Mr.Soft
Mr.Clean and Mr.Ben are living in my house
Shake along with me!

I'm sorry but I just don't know
I know you said I told you so
But when you're happy and you're feeling fine
Then you'll know that it's the right time
Then you'll know that it's the right time
To shake along with me!

Mister Sifter sold me songs
When I was just sixteen
Now he stops at traffic lights
But only when they're green
Shake along with me!

Maybe I don't really want to know
How your garden grows
As I just want to fly
Lately did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone

Maybe I just want to fly
I want to live I don't want to die
Maybe I just want to breath
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

We're gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Live forever
Forever

Hey you! Up in the sky
Learning to fly
Tell me how high
Do you think you'll go

Before you start falling
Hey you! Up in a tree
You want to be me
But that couldn't be

'Cause the people here they don't hear you calling
How does it feel
When you're inside me?
Hey you! wearing the crown

Making no sound
I heard you feel down
Well that's too bad
Welcome to my world

Hey you! Stealing the light
I heard that the shine's
Gone out of your life.
Well that's just too bad

Welcome to my world
You'll need assistance with the things that you have never ever seen
It's just a case of never breathing out
Before you've breathed it in

How does it feel
When you're inside me?
Hey you! Up in the sky
Learning to fly

Tell me how high
Do you think you'll go
Before you start falling
Hey you! Up in a tree

You want to be me
But that couldn't be
'Cause the people here they don't hear you calling
How does it feel

When you're inside me?
You'll need assistance with the things that you have never ever seen
It's just a case of never breathing out
Before you've breathed it in

How does it feel
When you're inside me?

There we were now here we are
All this confusion nothings the same to me
There we were now here we are
All this confusion nothings the same to me

But I can't tell you the way I feel
Because the way I feel is oh so! new to me
No I can't sell you the way I feel
Because the way I feel is oh so! new to me

What I heard is not what I hear
I can see the signs but they're not very clear
What I heard is not what I hear
I can see the signs but they're not very clear

This is confusion am I confusing you?

I need to be myself
I can't be no one else
I'm feeling supersonic
Give me gin and tonic
You can have it all but how much do you want it?
You make me laugh
Give me your autograph
Can I ride with you in your B.M.W?
You can sail with me in my yellow submarine

You need to find out
'Cos no one's gonna tell you what I'm on about
You need to find a way for what you want to say
But before tomorrow

'Cos my friend said he'd take you home
He sits in a corner all alone
He lives under a waterfall
Nobody can see him
Nobody can ever hear him call

You need to be yourself
You can't be no one else
I know a girl called Elsa
She's into Alka Seltzer
She sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train
And she made me laugh
I got her autograph
She done it with a doctor on a helicopter
She's sniffin' in her tissue
Sellin' the Big issue

And she finds out
'Cos no one's gonna tell her what I'm on about
You need to find a way for what you want to say
But before tomorrow

What was that sound ringing around your brain?
Today was just a blur you gotta head like a ghost train
What was that sound ringing around your brain?
You're here on your own who you gonna find to blame?

You're the outcast you're the underclass
But you don't care because you're living fast
You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end
I know you've got a problem that the devil sends

You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who
I'll be scraping your life from the soul of my shoe tonight.
Bring it on down. Bring it down for me
Your head's in a fish tank

Your body and your mind can't breath
You're the outcast - you're the underclass
But you don't care - because you're living fast
You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end

I know you've got a problem that the devil sends
You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who
I'll be scraping your life from the soul of my shoe tonight.

Is it my imagination
Or have I finally found something worth living for?
I was looking for some action
But all I found was cigarettes and alcohol

You could wait for a lifetime
To spend your days in the sunshine
You might as well do the white line
'Cause when it comes on top . . .

You gotta make it happen!
Is it worth the aggravation
To find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for?
It's a crazy situation

But all I need are cigarettes and alcohol!
You could wait for a lifetime
To spend your days in the sunshine
You might as well do the white line

'Cause when it comes on top...
You gotta make it happen!

What a life it would be
If you would come to mine for tea
I'll pick you up at half past three
And we'll have lasagna

I'll treat you like a Queen
I'll give you strawberries and cream
And then your friends will all go green
For my lasagna

These could be the best days of our lives
But I don't think we've been living very wise
Oh no! no!
What a life it would be

If you would come to mine for tea
I'll pick you up at half past three
And we'll have lasagna
These could be the best days of our lives

But I don't think we've been living very wise
Oh no! no!
What a life it would be
If you would come to mine for tea

I'll pick you up at half past three
And we'll have lasagna
I'll treat you like a Queen
I'll give you strawberries and cream

And then your friends will all go green
For my lasagna

Slide away and give it all you've got

My today fell in from the top

I dream of you and all the things you say

I wonder where you are now?
Hold me down all the world's asleep
Need you now you've knocked me off my feet
I dream of you and we talk of growing old

But you said please don't!
Slide in baby together we'll fly
I've tried praying but I don't know just what you're saying to me

Now that you're mine
We'll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning we don't know what to do

Two of a kind
We'll find a way
To do what we've done
Let me be the one who shines with you
And we can slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Away

Slide away, and give it all you've got
My today, fell in from the top
I dream of you and all the things you say
I wonder where you are now?

Slide in baby together we'll fly
I've tried praying and I know just what you're saying to me
Now that you're mine
We'll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one that shines with you
In the morning we don't know what to do

We are two of a kind
We'll find a way
To do what we've done
Oh, let me be the one that shines with you
And we can slide away
Slide away
Slide away

Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away

Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away
Slide away

There's no need for you to say you're sorry
Goodbye I'm going home
I don't care no more so don't you worry
Goodbye I'm going home

I hate the way that even though you
Know you're wrong you say you're right
I hate the books you read and all your friends
Your music shite it keeps me up all night

There's no need for you to say you're sorry
Goodbye I'm going home
I don't care no more so don't you worry
Goodbye I'm going home

I hate the way that you are so sarcastic
And you're not very bright
You think that everything you've done's fantastic
Your music shite it keeps me up all night

And it will be nice to be alone
For a week or two
But I know that I will be
Right back here with you

There's no need for you to say you're sorry
Goodbye I'm going home
I don't care no more so don't you worry
Goodbye I'm going home
