Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget Ohh how how how, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide 
You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clocks waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide  Chevy brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But the day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow Don't let the milk float ride your mind
You're so natural religiously unkind 
Oh no love, you're not alone You're watching yourself but you're too unfair You got your head all tangled up but if i could only
Make you care
Oh no love, you're not alone No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone 
Just turn on with me and you're not alone Let's turn on with me and you're not alone (wonderful) Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful (wonderful) Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful (wonderful)
Oh gimme your hands
