# So-called Mr Rock and Roll is dancing on his own again

:01:59.:02:01.

# He's got nowhere to go he's on his own again

:02:09.:02:15.

# Rock chick of the century is acting like she used to be

:02:16.:02:19.

# Before she never seemed to care now she wouldn't dare

:02:20.:02:25.

# And they'll meet one day far away

:02:26.:02:36.

# And say I wish I was something more

:02:37.:02:40.

# And say I wish I knew you

:02:41.:02:47.

# Mrs Black and White she's never seen a shade of grey

:02:48.:03:02.

# And they'll meet one day far away

:03:26.:03:36.

# And say I wish I was something more

:03:37.:03:40.

:03:41.:04:01.

# I wish I met you when time was still on my side.

:04:02.:04:06.

# I wish I loved you before I was his bride

:04:07.:04:18.

# And so they must depart too many more broken hearts

# And there's a happy ending every single day

:04:28.:04:35.
