lyrics

QUEEN JANE

It took me 17 days in the pouring rain and 2000 miles alone
making my way through your kingdom on the wrong side of the road
Eating at the service stations, sleeping in motel rooms
When I leave I'll miss some friends I made, but this time I won't miss you

No and I wont miss these gray skies
That hang over me like fate
Sometimes you think you need something new
then you get it and it's just not the same

Goodbye rain, Goodbye Queen Jane
I'm going home to the Golden State to fix all of my mistakes
Goodbye rain, Goodbye Queen Jane

I ventured in to this foreign land relying on the satellite
Just when you're lost at the roundabout It tells you to go left or go right
But now l long for familiar roads when I know how to take the turns
I can't wait to get out of this place with all of my lessons learned

Goodbye rain, Goodbye Queen Jane
I'm going home, whatever the stakes, never's worse than late
Goodbye rain, Goodbye Queen Jane

I used to think I could love you
But you have proven me wrong
The only thing you've been right about
Is that we don't belong

Goodbye rain, Goodbye Queen Jane
ROCK & ROLL ‘ER

dance her slower
rock, then roll her right
you can whisper what you say but there ain't no better way to start a fight

stand up taller
square your shoulders right
there's no better way to listen than kissin' in the middle of the night

it can be hard I know but a fresh start will show it's right
can't you feel it in the beating of your heart?

an empty chest that beats relentlessly
when you taste it in the air when foul turns to fair you'll know you're free

don't you worry
bet you've heard these cries
ear to ear you'll sing
like the color that you bring into my eyes

it can be hard I know but a fresh start will show it's right
can't you feel it in the beating of your heart?

dance her slower
rock, then her roll her right
can you hear the song that's playin'?
it's perfect way to end a perfect night

time is wasting
get up off your feet
the only one to save you has the very face you've used to capture me
