Bell X1 – Rocky Took A Lover lyrics

He said 'i wanna shine in the eye of Orion
But I drove my soul through the Black Hole'
She said 'That's a wonderful way to wake me
But you weren't so nice last night
You're such an asshole when you're drunk'
And he said 'At least I'm okay in the mornings'

He said 'The three wise men came a long way
Following that pin hole in the sky
Yeah, that one right there'
She said 'i don't believe in any old Jesus
If there was a God, then why is my arse
The perfect height for kicking? '

And he said, 'i'll shine for you'
He said, 'i'll burn for you'
He said, 'i will shine for you
That's what I'll do'

He said 'They're like headlights
In the rear view mirror
They're closer than they seem
And from this gutter we're still staring at the stars'
She said 'Would ya go ape shite
Last night all you did was curse those stars
Cuz they sang to you of hope'

He said 'The sun gives life, and it takes it away
But like all the greats, it'll burn out someday'
She said 'i don't mind, I don't wanna get bored
I don't wanna end up beached on this shore
I wanna be that star
I wanna be that star
Oh, let me be that star
I wanna be that star

And then I can shine for you
And then I can burn for you
And then I can shine for you
That's what I'll do. '

    What a great song. It's said in an acoustic version of this song that it's about a homeless man who lived in Dublin who brought a lady back with him oe night to where he slept. The song is imagining a conversation they may have had.
    By the way, the lyrics here 'Would ya go ape shite' should be 'Would ya go away and shite. ' It's an irish expression :)
