Natalie Duncan - Old Rock Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • There's a grey transparence in this city,
  • when it's slightly misty
  • And no one can run,
  • 'cause they spent all of
  • their money on alcohol ‘n junk.
  • Like you did, little man sat in the corner,
  • waiting for an epiphany of some sort,
  • As you spit and babble it all away to Jesus,
  • or some other spirit floating in your smoke.
  • You know you're gonna die pretty soon now,
  • but you keep on smiling at your thoughts
  • And your leftover loose pennies
  • that you can just about clutch in those dirty,
  • curled up claws still carefully counted,
  • they only amount to three more sips of ale
  • before I saw water well up in your eyes,
  • you told the same story to me.
  • And I think you may be the reason
  • for me to recreate my soul.
  • Say goodbye each time you leave.
  • Old Rock, they call me crazy too.
  • But you've got fifty years on me.
  • But I don't know what it is to
  • become more than to be sitting
  • right there by, that empty glass
  • you have left me.
  • It was all so much better back in your day,
  • it was all so romantic back where you lived.
  • In the bedsit you grew marijuana
  • and took pride in your record player.
  • I sit dreaming of you as a young man,
  • before the smoke and liquor turned you grey,
  • before you all looked exactly the same to me,
  • I see myself looking through a dusty mirror at me
  • after my babies, after my husbands,
  • after I lose my loved ones.
  • When I grow into a different person,
  • yes I'm gonna write every single one of your words,
  • I'll write every single one of your words,
  • I'll write every single one of your words.
  • I'll write. I'll write...
  • Oh that I, I think there be a reason for me to recreate my soul.
  • Say goodbye each time you leave.
  • Old Rock, they call me crazy too,
  • but you've got fifty years on me.
  • But I don't know what it is to
  • become more than to be sitting
  • right there by, that empty glass
  • you have left me.
  • Old Rock, they call me crazy too,
  • but you've got fifty years on me.
  • I don't know what it is to
  • become more than to be sitting
  • right there by, that empty glass
  • you have left me.
