​Ready To Roll

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album The Sun Will Shine Again (1996).

The mind is willing, but the body is weak
The tongue is talking and I'm trying to speak
The feet are moving with a definite illusion
That they're gonna go there
When they're going nowhere
I know maybe I'm a pitiful sight in the morning light

The eyes are open and they're tryin' to see
The hands are hopin' they're connected to me
I'm simply facin' the situation
I'm in need of resuscitation
But, oh baby, I'll be ready to roll tonight
I'll be ready to roll tonight

I'll be ready to roll like I'm out of control
Like I'm selling my soul to the night again
Out of control, like I'm out of the cold
And I'm hoping the night will never end

Some people's poison is another man's meat
You leave the kitchen if you don't like the heat
You got me feeling like my knees are knocking
You've got me reelin', you've got me rocking
But, oh baby, I'll be ready to roll tonight

I'll be ready to roll like I'm out of control
Like I'm selling my soul to the night again
Ready to roll like a carnival soul
Who's just hoping the night will never end

So don't you talk of other times that you've had
Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad
And I'm a creature of the night time
I want to meet you when the time's the right time
Oh baby, I'll be ready to roll tonight
I'll be ready to roll tonight

I'll be ready to roll tonight
Ready to roll, Ready to roll
Ready to roll, Ready to roll
I'll be ready to roll tonight
