I once heard a man say, rock and roll can never die.
I really felt something inside. I still don’t know the reason why...
made me just.. wanna cry
or wonder Was I born at the wrong time
did my soul get lost?... distracted by the pinkish light
turning circles burning bright
as I fell through, into this life.
Now, as a human I understand that inclination
to romanticize the past
But sometimes it just must be true - that everything was better then,
I don't mean just cars and shoes
The timeline is like a sound wave's re-itteration
the valley disappears with vibrations
but the day will come, the way will shine
to that valley one more time
we'll pick up from '69.
That day will dawn upon a new, human celebration
of love.. and what it means to be alive
to be always with curious minds
to live this life with open eyes
as the new rock and roll plays in the sky
when I heard a man on TV say “tear down this wall”
the Cold War appeared to thaw, the curtain fell, the actors gawked, the king and queen were visibly shocked
but the part of the show I most remember
was the day I realized
the writer had us all along
in the grips of his pen
i don’t believe this story ends.
