Some other versions of "On the Line"


I'm walking up the street now
To see a friend of mine
'Cos he's got something for me
Which helps me spend my time
I'm stood outside his house now
Knocking on the door
Until he invites me inside
Then he sells me a score

I feel fine tonight
On the line tonight
I feel fine tonight
Another line, alright

He gives me a free sample
It seems alright to me
Then he gives me what I want
But that isn't for free
I'm going back to my place
My heart is beating fast
Thinking how to get some more
'Cos what I got won't last

Well now it's nearly daylight
The suppy is running short
I reach out for the mirror
To take another snort
My eyes are open wide now
My mouth is oh so dry
Ain't got a care in the world
I'm flying oh so high

Well now it's some hours later
And I am coming down
I look into the mirror
My face just wears a frown
Is it really worth it?
You're lying to your body
To forget reality
