Rock n’ Roll Tears

© Drew James 2002

 

When my fingers, touch the silver strings

I recall the joy it used to bring

Before the tune changed to fortune & fame

 

From this stage, high above the ground

Can’t find a friend, out in the crowd

I’m out of reach and so far out of touch

 

So who will catch me if I slip & fall from way up here

Alone with my rock n’ roll tears

 

Pretty sounds, led to starry eyes

Precious rings, fans who idolize

How it came to be I’ll never explain

 

I stood by and watched it grow

Seemed all I touched turned into gold

Till the only pretty sounds were made by the sales

 

But who will catch me if I slip & fall from way up here

Alone with my rock n’ roll tears

 

Now everyone I try to hold

Freezes just like Midas gold

And all the starry eyes

Are turning clear

Except for my rock n’ roll tears

 

So who will catch me if I slip & fall from way up here

And dry these rock n’ roll tears
