I Can't Wait (Part 1)

What will be there
When tomorrow sets the test for this affair
And we'll find out that the visions that we've shared
Was just nightmares of a monster

When we were young those smashing days
The world seemed to be a song, sung by a popstar
And nothing could be wrong but the E-string
Of your machine gun

Go tell the star his hair is turning grey, turning grey
And all the people disappear
And the spotlight is fading away
I've been losing my head
And just like you the scene made me mad
And I've been losing brain-cells a million a day
And I have been on suicide street
Like you

I Can't Wait (Part 2)

I can't wait on you to find out
What'cha gonna do
If your're going to win
Or you're going to lose
I just feel speed inside my shoes
And I can't wait on you to find me
Stoned in a rented room
With my sunglasses laying dusty
On the strings of my guitar

Come on, get your gun
Come on, shoot it for a run
Come on, be what you are
Come on, baby be a star

Please make up your mind before I
Make it up on you
'Cause I'll be down the road an' gone
Without a thought on you
And you can kiss the wind goodbye then
Tell him you are mine
I'll be down the road and gone
Most likely feeling fine

Aha

I can't see a tired man
Sleeping in a subway train
Laying down the holy game of poker
You better check your cards out, "Jim"
And find an ace
'Cause you definitely
Can't use the joker

Come on, get your gun
Come on, shoot it for a run
Come on, be what you are
Come on, baby be a star

Please make up your mind before I
Make it up on you
'Cause I'll be down the road an' gone
Without a thought on you
And you can kiss the wind goodbye then
Tell him you are mine
I'll be down the road and gone
Most likely feeling fine

Come on, shoot
Come on, shoot
Come on, shoot
Come on, shoot

Mirror

Gimme my mirror, so that I can see my face
I'm stuck on TV and they show me my own place
But I'm not satisfied, their games make me feel blue
'Cause without know'n' my face, Babe,
I just can't find you

So I get myself together and I fight against that pain
Why can't we all do the same

Show your true feelings and they make you feel small
They've got the money and you run when they call
But I'm not satisfied, their games make me feel blue
'Cause without know'n' my face, Babe,
I just can't find you

So I get myself together and I fight against that pain
Why can't we all do the same

So I get myself together and I fight against that pain
Why can't we all do the same

Forget pollution love your air-conditioned flat
There ain't no music ain't no sun
I feel like a rat
I'm not satisfied, their games make me feel blue
'Cause without know'n' my face, Babe,
I just can't find you

So I get myself together and I fight against that pain
Why can't we all do the same

So take it easy and don't run fast like they do
Watch out, be careful and your word have to be true
Then you'll wear their clothes and act like a fool
And then you watch their faces it should be quite cool

If you are serious you'll find yourself in war
They want you shout and scream and move your guitar

Move on up, baby
Move on up
Get it on
Move on up
Get it on
Move on up
