Roger Daltrey – Don't Wait On The Stairs lyrics

W&m Steve Swindells
© 1980 Unichappel Inc.

You ain't doing nothing when you're walking in the rain
Your energy is running like the water down the drain
Fighting is exciting, making everything so hard
And every foot you run you want to turn into a yard
You ain't doing nothing when you're leaning on a bar
But your mind is making pictures of the person that you are
Feel the heartbeat of the city as it pounds inside your head
You've got danger in your eyes, you want a stranger in your bed
Heartbeat of the city, pounding in your head
You've got danger in your eyes, you want a stranger in your bed

Desperation angels waiting, leaning on the walls
Watching all the workers as they sweat it on the floor
Someone makes an entrance and the cat's eyes turn to green
Asking burning questions, you pretend it's all a dream

You ain't doing nothing when you're staring into space
In the mirror someone's looking with it written on your face
Don't slow down you mustn't slow down
Hearts beat faster in the center of town
Don't get scared You mustn't get scared
There's danger everywhere
Don't wait on the stairs
