lyrics

I TURNED TO BE A LOSER AND A NERVOUS WRECK
EVERYONE CONFUSED ME , I ABUSED MYSELF
NOW I SEE MY HAIR IS TURNING GRAY
I CANNOT PIERCE MY BODY AND I CANNOT DRINK
I CANNOT BE A BAD GIRL AND I CANNOT THINK
I HAVE NO FRIENDS AND I’M SINKING LOW

CAN I TAKE SOME MORE TIME AND JUST LINGER AROUND
CAN I SPEND ONE MORE NIGHT ON THE ROOF, ON THE ROOF

INSTR. SOLO

I DROVE DOWN A DESERT THEN I FOLLOWED THE MOON
MY TRIP WAS OVER TOO FAST, TOO SOON
NOW I’M DRIVING ONLY IN MY RUGGED DREAMS
I KNOW I AM JADED BUT I CANNOT HEAL
THERE’S NOTHING AND NOONE I CONSIDER REAL
TAKE YOUR JUNK AND LEAVE ME ALONE

CAN I TAKE SOME MORE TIME AND JUST LINGER AROUND
CAN I SPEND JUST ONE NIGHT IN YOUR ROOM, IN YOUR ARMS
CAN I WALK IN ONCE MORE THROUGH THAT DOOR AT YOUR HOME
CAN I HAVE ONE MORE NIGHT ON THE ROOF?

I LOST CONTROL WHEN I FOUND OUT YOU WERE WITH SOMEONE ELSE, NOW I KEEP FIGHTING ALL THE MEMORIES
BY WALKING ON THE ROOFTOPS I REMIND MYSELF I’M ALIVE AND I’M FINE, JUST FINE

INSTR. SOLO

SEE THE LIGHT OF THE RISING SUN
I’M OFF YOUR ROOF, WAY DOWN
YOU CAN’T HELP
I’M ON MY WAY
FALLING OFF THE ROOF
