Nowhere Fast

You’re lying in your bed on a Saturday night
You’re sweating buckets and it’s not even hot
But your brain has got the message and it’s sending it out
To every nerve and every muscle you’ve got

You’ve got so many dreams that you don’t know where to put ‘em
So you better turn a few of them loose
Your body’s got a feeling that it’s starting to rust
You better rev it up and put it to use

I don’t know how I ever thought that I could make it all alone
When you only make it better and it better be tonight
And we’ll fly away on those angel wings of chrome on my fiery bike
Waiting there for you tonight
I’ll be there for you tonight

Even if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll
And even if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll

And your speed, it’s all you ever need
And all you ever need to know!
Darlin’, darlin’!

You and me we’re goin’ nowhere slowly
And we gotta get away from the past
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

Everybody’s goin’ nowhere slowly
They’re only fighting for the chance to be last
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast
It’s so much better goin’ nowhere fast....

Stalking in the shadows by the light of the moon
It’s like a prison and the night is a cell
Going anywhere has got to be Heaven tonight
‘Cause staying here has got to be Hell

You’re dying in the city like a fire on the water
Let’s go running on the back of the wind
There’s gotta be some action on the face of the earth
And I’ve got to see your face once again

And I don’t know where I ever got the bright idea that I was cool
So alone and independent, but I’m dependin’ on you now
You’ll always be the only thing that I just can’t be without
And I’m out for you tonight
I’m coming out for you tonight

Even if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll
Even if you don’t have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you’re ready to roll

And your speed, it’s all you ever need
And all you ever need to know!
Darlin’, darlin’!

You and me we’re goin’ nowhere slowly
And we gotta get away from the past
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

Everybody’s goin’ nowhere slowly
They’re only fighting for the chance to be last
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

You and me we’re goin’ nowhere slowly
And we gotta get away from the past
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast

Everybody’s goin’ nowhere slowly
They’re only fighting for the chance to be last
There’s nothin’ wrong with goin’ nowhere baby
But we should be goin’ nowhere fast....

We’re Still the Children We Once Were

We’re still the children we were then
But we never found a way
We never did get home
Where’s Mommy? Daddy? Where’d they go?
They’ve left us here alone
And with all the arts we mastered
All the things we’ve known
Who’s going to take us home?

We’re still the children we were then
Who’s going to take us home?
We’re still the children we were then
Who’s going to take us home?
Take us home?

And I hope you know that after all these demons
Have passed and gone
There’s always one more left
And we simply can’t turn on the light
And we surely can’t turn off the night
We can’t find a way to get away from how we’ve grown
Still waiting to go home

We’re still the children we were then
Still waiting to go home
We’re still the children we were then
Still waiting to go home
Still waiting to go home

I apologize for any histrionics
Reality can be a crashing bore
But if you want some heavy drama
I’ve got a whole damn panorama
And let emotions pour
Just let emotions pour

But now in all sincerity
Try not to be too rough on me
When adding up the score
Who did what and how, what for?
And with all this knowledge how can we be so alone?
Some people never do get home

We’re still the children we once were
Some people never do get home
We’re still the children we once were
Some people never do get home

And with all this knowledge
How can we be so alone?

Some people never do get home
We’re still the children we were then
Some people never do get home
We’re still the children we were then

Some people never do get home

Take me home… now
