Big Audio Dynamite – Rush lyrics
If I had my time again
I would do it all the same
And not change a single thing
Even when I was to blame
For the heartache and the pain
That I caused throughout my years
How I loved to be your man
Through the laughter and the tears

Situation no win
Rush for a change of atmosphere
I cover the walls so I give in
Gotta get myself right out of here

Now I'm fully clothed
And I know where it's at
Somehow I stay thin
While the other guys got fat
All the chances that I've blown
And the times that I've been down
I didn't get too high
Kept my feet on the ground

(Repeat Chorus)

[Interlude:] yes, it's delightful, delightful
"Rush for a change of atmosphere....."
.. I wish I could sing like that. Not everything is singing you know.
The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...
And melody.
.. A time to laugh
A time to cry

And of all my friends
You've been the best to me
Soon will be the thing
When I will pay you handsomely
Broken hearts are hard to mend
You know I've had my share
But life just carries on
Even when I'm not there

(Repeat chorus x2)

Gotta get myself right
Gotta get myself right
Gotta get myself right
Outta here
Gotta get myself right
Gotta get myself right
Gotta get myself right
Outta here
