“Rocky Took a Lover” Bell X1

He said, ‘I wanna shine in the eye of Orion
But I drove my soul through the black hole’
She said, ‘What a wonderful way to wake me
You weren’t so nice last night
You’re such an asshole when you’re drunk’
He said, ‘At least I’m okay in the mornings’

He said, ‘The three wise men came a long way
Following that pin hole in the sky
Yeah, that one right there’
She said, ‘I don’t believe in any old Jesus
If there was a God, then why is my arse
The perfect height for kicking?’

He said, ‘I’ll shine for you, I’ll burn for you’
He said, ‘I’ll shine for you, that’s what I’ll do’

He said, ‘They’re like headlights
In the rear view mirror
They’re closer than they seem
And from this gutter we’re still staring at the stars’
She said, ‘Would you go away and shite?
Last night all you did was curse those stars
Cause they sang to you of hope’

He said, ‘The sun gives life, and it takes it away
But like all the greats, it’ll burn out someday’
She said, ‘I don’t mind, I don’t want to get bored
I don’t want to end up beached on this shore
I want to be that star’

And then I’ll shine for you, then I’ll burn for you
Then I can shine for you, that’s what I’ll do
