you let your hair grow long you’ve started a new phase playing major songs in minor keys old leather jacket on all of your piercings in place motorcycle boots and tattooed sleeves nobody ever said it would be easy to do that change has got to start with you you’ve gone electric now you’re bursting at the seams the world’s at your doorstep breaking every wave with your body troubled times it seems ain’t gonna haunt ya no more you’re solid at the core of your own belief if somebody warned you it gets lonely it does tonight I’m glad I found your love we’ve gone electric gone electric gone electric now we’ve gone electric, gone electric gone electric now we’ve gone electric, gone electric gone electric now gone electric come on pick up the phone they’re trying to reach you they’ve grown a bit concerned by what they’ve seen things that mom and dad just didn’t teach you so many lessons learned on the street maybe they told you it was a problem you had maybe they told you there’d be no coming back the lines they sold you rung so hollow and sad they could write it on your epitaph he’s gone electric gone electric gone electric now he's gone electric, gone electric gone electric now he’s gone electric, gone electric gone electric now gone electric he’s gone electric gone electric gone electric now you’ve gone electric, gone electric gone electric now we’ve gone electric, gone electric gone electric now gone electric

walking a wire with our hearts strung on the line blind by desire if I fall it's by design everyone I know has gone up in smoke I'm alone there's no looking backwards make like a stone and roll on love unrequited how we yearn for what we cannot own freedom has many forms liberate me in bondage lost in all the looks that we steal hard to know what's right much less what's real darling this feels like a dream but I'm not high and I'm not asleep yet everyone we know has gone up in smoke we're alone there's no looking backwards make like a stone and roll on nothing to show but two broken souls on the road let's see where it leads us finding what frees us hey, I'm excited I believe we've turned a corner drunk on imbibing all the sweet with bitter
