Velveteen

This song is by The Rose of Avalanche and appears on the album Always There (1987).

She's still playin' in my head
Velveteen she's not so dead
Hangin' off my bedroom wall

She played those games for far too long
She loved those rock stars one by one
She gave them all she had to give
She saw them fall onto the floor
They left her there to weep some more

Velveteen, her heart's so strong
Velveteen they love so long
She's sure to live and die that way

But not until she's played her games
A long-lost hot night in the sky
Around the world by night she'll fly
A rock star's death she does not mind
A lonely life is what you need tonight

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Velveteen her love has gone
Her long-lost loves, they too have gone
The end of life is drawing near
She won't just sit back and disappear

She's livin' out her life that's flown
She's givin' it all she's got that's gold
She's telling all how she survived
A rock star's death is what she needs to lie
To die
To cry
To fly

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Velveteen her heart's so strong
Velveteen her love's so long
A rock star's death she does not mind
A lonely life is what you need
Cry
