Thomas Dolby – Road To Reno lyrics

He was a crooked politician
She sold brassieres at Sears
He said he liked the Beatles
And she liked Tears For Fears

In a '64 Camaro
He promised her the moon
And they rode the open freeway
On the road to Reno yeah

They had to fall in love
They heard the call of love
They shopped in malls for love
They did it all for love
They ate Mars bars for love
They crashed a car for love
They scratched the stars for love
On the road to Reno yeah
On the road to Reno

But love's got fickle fingers
And they both wound up in jail
Cause he ran a light in Palmdale
With a cruiser on his tail
But they broke out for the border
On the road to Reno yeah

They had to fall in love
They heard the call of love
They shopped in malls for love
They did it all for love
They ate Mars bars for love
They crashed a car for love
They scratched the stars for love
On the road to Reno yeah
On the road to Reno

And when love was not enough
They just put their faith in God
So the writing on the wall
Like the mountains of the moon
And when all the love ran out
He went out and bought a gun
And he took it to their room
And he filed the number off
And he blew them both away
To the mountains of the moon

On the road to Reno yeah
They had to fall in love
They heard the call of love
They shopped in malls for love
They did it all for love
They ate Mars bars for love
They crashed a car for love
They scratched the stars for love
On the road to Reno yeah
On the road to Reno yeah
On the road to Reno
