Revolver – 49 States lyrics
She's gone away for good
She's turned 48 and she blames her life on fate
She brought herself down with rules she took for granted
And went through the motions, caught up in the wheel of shame

And John, he's a well respected man
He bows down to the crowd then turns and bows down to the king
He holds nothing sacred, he's nothing but a lukewarm man
Like a blackhole he will swallow himself in the end

I don't wanna have to lie
I don't wanna force a smile
To whom must I prove myself?
On all those people I've turned my back
Now it's time, time to change my plans

Now I'm often lost in thoughts
But I can read the signs living all around
And all my friends, well they don't really know me now
I keep on moving and I don't wanna settle down

And Alex, I just met him the other day
He gave me his guitar because he had to go away
He's looking for something, but he can't remember what it was
He's been to 49 states but it didn't get him down the road

I don't wanna have to lie
I don't wanna force a smile
To whom must I prove myself?
The past few weeks I've been feeling trapped
Now I'm just starting to understand
The only rule is change
