lyrics

ROUTE 44



ALL YOUR SMOKING AND YOUR DRINKING, ALL YOU LAZY WAYS OF THINKING MADE YOU MASTER OF CONFUSION AND YOU SHIVER WITH THE TICKING OF THE CLOCK. FOR YOUR LIVER GIVES YOU FEVER AND YOU CAN’T SEE VERY CLEARLY AND THE DAYS ARE GETTING SHORTER AND YOUR HEART IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEARTH. YOUR YOUNG LOVER'S GETTING WEARY, SHE FORGIVES YOU FOR YOUR TROUBLES BUT SHE NEEDS A MAN TO GIVE HER
ALL THE PRECIOUS TIME SHE'S SURELY WAITING FOR. STILL YOU HOOK YOURSELF ON DREAMING, KEEP ON WRITING SONGS AND LYRICS AS IF MIRACLES COULD COME OUT OF YOUR WORDS. THOUGH YOU’RE DRIVING TO DISASTER ALWAYS FASTER, OH SO FASTER, YOU KEEP THINKING THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
SO YOU GIVE YOURSELF TO ANYTHING THAT CAN GIVE YOU STRENGTH TO HOLD ON TO YOUR DREAMS EVEN IF THEY’RE NOT SO VERY CLEAR. FOR A WORD FROM ALL THOSE MIGHTY STARS THAT WILL HAUNT YOU ‘TILL THE DAY YOU DIE YOU’D BE NO DOUBT INSIDE THE DEVIL’S RING.
AND YOU'RE FALLING OUT OF NATURE'S LAWS CAUSE YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN A STUBORN BOY WHO NEVER PAID MUCH ATTENTION TO THE SIGNS. BUT NOW THE SIGNS ARE COMING VERY FAST, THEY ARE SHOWING YOU THAT YOU WONT LAST, THAT YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER MONKEY WITHOUT WINGS.
SO YOU HOLD YOU LOVER IN YOUR BED AND YOU SLOWLY KISS HER IN THE HEAD SAYING "OH BABY, YOU'RE SUCH A PRETTY THING!" FOR A WORD FROM ALL THOSE MIGHTY STARS THAT WILL HAUNT YOU TILL THE DAY YOU DIE
 YOU WOULD BE NO DOUBT INSIDE THE DEVIL’S RING.
AS ANOTHER NIGHT IS FALLING AND THE OWLS ARE GENTLY OWLING AND THE MOON GLOWS SO MYSTERIOUSLY ONCE MORE, YOU START WRITING DOWN A BRAND NEW SONG ABOUT THE TIME THAT YOU WERE 44 AND YOU DRINK LIKE YOU WERE 17 AGAIN.
YOU THINK THAT A MAN IS NEVER GETTING OLD IF HE KEEPS ON PLAYING ROCK'N'ROLL, IF HE'S ALIVE ENOUGH TO SING THIS SONG. SO I WISH YOU GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND
GOOD LUCK AND GOODNIGHT: I GUESS THINGS TEND TO BE ALL RIGHT!
