No surrender

Cover me baby,
i’m on fire;
I’m going down (the glory days are over)
one minute you’re here
next I’m writing letters to you...
The relativity of time feels like a concrete river;
I see you in my dreams, bobby socks,
dancing in the dark
with sad eyes
in the house of a thousand guitars
listening to Radio Nowhere -
no surrender.

i’ll work for your love;
living in the future was my own worst enemy,
a cautious man - two faces -
what a brilliant disguise;
now I’m taking the long way home
to our city of ruins
on the back of a magic gypsy biker.
if I drive all night,
passing all the girls in summer clothing,
i’ll be the last to die
in this devil’s arcade...
