JAMES REYNE - FALL OF ROME Lyrics

Composer * REYNE JAMES MICHAEL
Genre * 1980'/Rock/Male Vocal
Producer * Damian Smith
=======================================================

Intro:
I want no part of this despair.
I want no ugly mornings.
I want no opiated fear.
I want no clouded callings.
All alone.
All alone, ah ah.

8-bar break

Verse 1:
Every morning when I wake from my bed,
I find I'm yawnin', just a-scratchin' my head.
I face the dawnin', I feel like I'm dead.
Baby, I been sleeping all alone.
Well, every daybreak as I wake from my sleep,
I find I'm achin' as I drag from the deep.
If I were Mustang, I'd be a junk-yard heap.
Mirror, don't lie, mirror, don't lie, talk about a rollin' stone.

Chorus:
Everbody said a-what's that sound,
Put it in a skillet and slap it all around.
And everybody said I can't stay home,
Still thinkin' 'bout the Fall of Rome.
Still thinkin' 'bout the Fall of Rome.

Verse 2:
Well, all these dragons are just a-draggin' me down.
I've been a-pickin' things up from the underground.
Like a trackless tram, I'm Bondi bound
Sittin' in the depot all alone.
No purity, no clear white walls.
A big stampede when the Warragul calls.
Times a-menacing just gnashes and mauls.
Where'm I gonna buy it, where'm I gonna buy it?
Gotta give a dog a bone.

Repeat chorus

I've been a-thinkin' 'bout the Fall of Rome.

Guitar solo

Verse 3:
Well I've been livin' a categorical lie.
Each last thrill the penultimate high.
Just a-one more hit before I can die.
Yellow teeth are snappin' all around.
Well, every day of the week as I wake from my bed,
I find I'm achin', just a scratchin' my head.
If I were Mustang, I think it's gone to my head
Mirror, don't lie, mirror, don't lie, talk about a rolling stone.

Chorus 2:
Everbody said a-what's that sound,
Put it in a skillet and slap it all around.
And everybody said I can't stay home,
Still thinkin' 'bout the Fall of Rome.
Well, everbody said a-what's that sound,
Put it in a skillet and slap it all around.
And everybody said I can't stay home,
Still thinkin' 'bout the Fall of Rome. (4x)

Vamp:
I've been a-thinkin' 'bout the fall of Rome.
Fall of Rome.
Fall of Rome.
