Roxy Music – True To Life lyrics


So it gets to seven
And I think of nothing
But living in darkness
And the diamond lady
Well sheґs not telling
I donґt even know her name
Itґs amazing
Times have changed
In days of old
Imaginationґd leave you standing
Out in the could
Dancing city
Now youґre talking
But whereґs your soul
-youґve a thousand faces
Iґll never know
There are complications
And compensations
If you know the game
Agitated in xenon nightly
Iґll take you home again
Travel way downtown
In search of nothing
But the sky at night
And the diamond lady
Well sheґs not talking
But thatґs alright
So I turn the pages
And tell the story
From town to town
People tell me
Be determined
Poor country boy
Too much luck
Means too much trouble
Much time alone
But arm in arm
With my seaside diamond
Iґll soon be home
