Gasoline 03:27
We were breathin heavy I said oh my god Good lookin, you're trouble And trouble gon' get caught I'm feeling courageous So run baby run run baby run if you're not My love is electric Can't resist your lighting rod My heart pumps gasoline My heart pumps gasoline Strike it, light it, watch it glow Burn it up, burn it up 'til there ain't no more My heart pumps gasoline Sun came up that morning Like it always does And despite my warning Sucker, you're in love I need the sensation So come baby come come baby come back to bed My love's a libation Drink up 'til there's nothing left My heart pumps gasoline My heart pumps gasoline Strike it, light it, watch it glow Burn it up, burn it up 'til there ain't no more My heart pumps gasoline Strike it, light it, watch it glow Burn it up, burn it up 'til there ain't no more Strike it, light it, watch it glow Burn it up, burn it up 'til there ain't no more Strike it, light it, watch it glow Burn it up, burn it up 'til there ain't no more My heart pumps gasoline

I found my voice They said it wasn't mine I had a choice But choices are always blind So far from home and my home just keeps on changing If I was alone I'd worry and worry for ages But you stay with me baby Keep me safe through the changes Honestly, no sages could've seen You settling for me Too many exits I been waiting outside It's like fear of death It'll keep you from living your life If I went out I know I'm too poor to choose You came around And you showed me we've nothing to lose When you stayed with me baby Keep me safe through the changes Honestly no sages could've seen you falling for me Stay with me baby Keep me safe through the changes Honestly no sages could've seen You dancing with me Stay with me baby I'll keep you safe through the changes Honestly no sages could've seen you and me.

Bought my last last pack of smokes with quarters Now I can't afford the train So I'm walking to the High Hat Club to make some change He's always sittin' at the back, His favorite place to settle. He never looks up once while I'm up checkin' levels He ain't Mr. Universe, more like Mr. Ashtabula And yeah he turns me on But he's straight as a ruler. It's been raining all day But it's a clear black night Don't need your blue skies Just your clear black night A look of recognition and it's back to his magazine It's all I wanted now I'm back to my fantasy But now I'm moving closer and he smells of mesquite He's a real man's man but not the kind that would be into me Of all the words I had, I finally had to settle Has anyone ever told you you look like Burt Reynolds? It's been raining all day But it's a clear black night Don't need your blue skies Just your clear black night I been looking all around but I ain't seen a thing That'll take him off my mind and I just can't tell him I been sniffing all around but I ain't smelled a thing That'll take him off my mind, no I can still smell him It's been raining all day But it's a clear black night Don't need your blue skies Just your clear black night

Roll Big River, rolling all night and day Roll big river and everything gonna be OK They shook Billy down on his first night in town And Dan got jumped behind Jewel They took all that Joe owned, but they left his trombone Now he's right back playing the blues Well Gen and Marc, they had to park Their trailer on the side of the street Someone busted off the lock and drove it off the block But they're right back ain't missed a beat Roll Big River, rolling all night and day Roll big river and everything gonna be OK My band broke up, and damn I was stuck beat down without no choice But to pack up and move, get a new point of view I got right down finding my voice I dropped in on some friends back in South Bend A bangin' rhythm section of pros Instead of laying down tracks, broken glass I lost everything even my clothes But I just roll big river, rolling all night and day Roll big river and everything gonna be OK Just 'cause I ain't mentioned fighting I ain't inviting You to pull one over on me We carry bats and chains now, we'll beat out your brains now Had enough turning the other cheek It's happened so many times, can't get it off my mind What exactly I'm gonna do Just a little bit of torture before I report you Send you off with the boys in blue Now you can roll Big River, rolling all night and day Roll big river and everything gonna be OK Roll Big River, rolling all night and day Roll big river and everything gonna be OK
