John Cale – Old China lyrics

Sitting 'round, talking 'bout old china and how the ladies hair will go to grey, paying for a speedy revolution, hoping those fine lines will go away. Someone screams about abuse of power, so lo
There was nothing left to say, hoping for a speaking revolution, and wishing that the crimes would go away.

Cross your heart and hope to die, it'll happen in the blinking of an eye.
Cross your heart and hope to die, it'll happen in the blinking of an eye.

Dealing with the mask of your deception, I threw that other chance away today.
I'd been asking for a speedy resolution, hoping other signs would go away. Since
Sitting here, talking 'bout old china, and how old ladies hair will go to grey, I'd
Been praying for a speedy resolution, expecting that the time will slip away.

Cross your heart and hope to die, it'll happen in the blinking of an eye.
Cross your heart and hope to die, it'll happen in the blinking of an eye.
