Stealers Wheel – Johnny's Song lyrics

(Rafferty/Egan)

Looking for something, looking for one thing,
Trying to find anything that makes you feel.
Gotta keep goin', don't let it get you down,
Now you've got nothing to lose.

You've been taking it so hard, taking it on the head,
Don't you know life's as good as being dead?
Gotta keep movin', don't let it get you down,
Now you've got nothing to lose.

When everyone around you tells you you're doin' fine,
They're gonna drive you crazy.
So don't close your eyes and swallow all those lies,
Don't believe what you've been told,
'Cause you'll wake up one day knowing nothing they say
Can satisfy your soul.

Gotta keep movin', don't let it get you down,
Now you've got nothing to lose.

When everyone around you tells you you're doin' fine,
They're gonna drive you crazy.
So don't close your eyes and swallow all those lies,
Don't believe what you've been told,
'Cause you'll wake up one day knowing nothing they say
Can satisfy your soul.

(repeat first verse)
