Be Bop Deluxe – Life In The Air Age lyrics

Beneath the stars there are the bars
That serve the bitter drink
The barman smiles at me
His wife she gives a secret wink

They listen patiently to me
My story I unfold
I see their faces change
The lights grow dim I'm losing hold

I used to be a boy
My heart was young and supple then
But now it's stoney cold
I'm old and I could use a friend

My world is not like yours
I come from somewhere long ago
And now there's no way back
I'm lost and I feel so alone

You can leave me in the air age if you like
But I'd dearly love to go back to my own time

(Life in the air age)
Isn't all the brochures say
(Life in the air age)
It's too dangerous to stay
(Life in the air age)
Airships crashing every day into the bay

(Life in the air age)
It's all highways in the sky
(Life in the air age)
All the oceans have run dry
(Life in the air age)
It's grim enough to make a robot cry
