Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – Living In The Real World lyrics

(B. Rush)

I know there is a day without headlines
Where profit won't intertwine
With somebody's pain

We know there is hurt behind the laughter
The sting lingers after
Whoa for such a long time

And one crazy fool laughing at the newsreel
Watching as the citizens steal
It's such a riot downtown

Living in the real world
Living in the real world
Every day in the real world
Finds a way to remind me

I roam living in a wolf pack
Getting my fingers snapped
Whenever I reach out
And if I - if I ever stumble
I'll feel their warm breath
Nuzzling death in my ear

Living in the real world
Living in the real world
Every day in the real world
Finds a way to remind me

Passions turned to worthless litter
Dot the shores of human rivers
The tide just keeps on sweeping me along
Living in the real world

Left so weak 'cause the love she handled every day
Time slowly ate away
And it's a mouth that's forever hungry

And it's too late, the deck was already stacked
She thought she had love down pat
Till the ace jumped out of the hole

She's living in the real world
Living in the real world
Every day in the real world
Finds a way to remind me
Living in the real world
Living in the real world
We're all living in the real world
