Rock + Roll lyrics


  Printer Friendly Version

So tell me this is who you are
But, tell me I've got something worse
And oh, you could be lyin'

But I don't want the lies to find me
When I'm dark and lost but never on my own

'Cause I just wanna swing like Sinatra
Sing like I can't stop
'Cause I can never rock like a Rolling Stone
I just wanna live like the ones before

And maybe I could play guitar like Hendrix
Or save the world or end it
And maybe they'll remember me when I'm gone
It's all I could ever want
It's all I want

So I got ten minutes to be all or nothing
To whoever wants to hear
And I got ten weeks to talk bullshit on repeat until I'm burned out and disappear
But I owe you nothing
And I own my life
So you'll say you'll never be alone again
But I don't think you understand me or what I fear

But you could be loved
But I don't wanna lie to tell myself
I'm more than all the mistakes I've outrun
I'm only here for a minute
But I don't care what you say
'Cause I know you're only here 'cause I'm winning
But I can be my own kind of rock and roll
I don't really care if you say you don't fuck with me
And I can say what the fuck I want 'cause it's down to me
And I got love for you even if you were doubting me
Like, oh my God, I just can't stop

'Cause I just wanna sing like Sinatra
Nothing on my soundtrack
'Cause I can never rock like a Rolling Stone
And wonder how it feels to burnout young

'Cause I just wanna die before my heart fails
From heartbreak or cocktails
Then maybe you'll cry once you know I'm gone
It's all I could ever want
Oh, it's all I want
'Cause I ain't scared of livin'

No I ain't scared of livin'
No I ain't scared of livin'

'Cause it's all we got
What are we breathin' for?
And I don't want your love
I just wanna feel like I'm still livin'
And if there is no god
I know the day I die I'd live through heaven
And that I gave it hell
And if it hurt, oh well
At least that's living

It's all I want
It's all I want
