She believed in fairy tales and princes
He believed the voices coming from his stereo.
He believed in rock ‘n roll.
She left the past and those lily white fences
And headed out to Hollywood in
Search of her soul,
But she had to pay the toll, yes she did.
They were bound to find each other
He needed proof, she needed a brother
That’s when stars collide
When there's space for what you want
And your heart is open wide.

He gave up women for the stripes of the road,
And learned the meaning of grace,
That’s when his cup overflowed.
And she said: Hello!
He said: my faith keeps me from willing
But you know that I’m able
And if there's some room I'd like to sit at your table.
She says: it’s tight, but I think I can fit you in.

This kind of love don’t come from a prayer
Ain’t talking rebound, born of despair.
Yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed
Two people in love, with nothing but the road ahead.

Oh yeah, oh oh.
Alright!
Oh oh oh ooh ooh.
Let’s go!

She believed in fairy tales and princes,
He believed in jazz, rhythm and blues
And this thing called soul,
He believed in rock ‘n roll.
She wanted to see her name appear on the big screen,
He just wanted to hear her scream his name.
Can you scream my name?
Do you know what I mean!

This kind of love don’t come from a prayer
Ain’t talking rebound, born of despair.
Yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed
Two people in love, with nothing but the road ahead.

Rock rock love affair (x3)
