Rock & Roll Fantasy

Hello you, hello me, hello people we used to be

Isn't it strange, we never changed

We've been through it all yet we're still the same

And I know it's a miracle we still go, and for all we know

We might still have a way to go

.

Hello me, hello you, you say you want out

Want to start anew, throw in your hand

Break up the band, start a new life, be a new man

But for all we know, we might still have a way to go

Before you go, there's something you ought to know

.

There's a guy in my block, he lives for rock

He plays records day and night

And when he feels down he puts some rock 'n' roll on

And it makes him feel alright

And when he feels the world is closing in

He turns his stereo way up high

.

He just spends his life living in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

He just spends his life living on the edge of reality

He just spends his life in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

He just spends his life living in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

He just spends his life living on the edge of reality

He just spends his life in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

He just spends his life living in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

.

Look at me, look at you

You say we've got nothing left to prove

The King is dead, rock is done

You might be through but I've just begun

I don't know, I feel free and I won't let go

Before you go, there's something you ought to know

.

Dan is a fan and he lives for our music

It's the only thing that gets him by

He's watched us grow and he's seen all our shows

He's seen us low and he's seen us high

Oh, but you and me keep thinking

That the world's just passing us by

.

Don't want to spend my life living in a rock 'n' roll fantasy

Don't want to spend my life living on the edge of reality

Don't want to waste my life hiding away anymore

Don't want to spend my life living in a rock 'n' roll fantasy
