「I WAS ONLY JOKING」の歌詞 Rod Stewart

2009/1/28 リリース
Ever since I was a kid at school
I messed around with all the rules
Apologize then realize
I'm not different after all
Me and the boys thought we had it sussed
Valentinos, all of us
My dad said we look ridiculous
But boy, we broke some hearts

In and out of jobs, runnin' free
Waging war with society
Dumb blank faces stared back at me
But nothing ever changed
Promises made in the heat of the night
Creepin' home before it got too light
I wasted all that precious time
And blamed it on the wine

I was only joking, my dear (My dear)
Lookin' for a way to hide my fear (My fear)
What kind of fool was I (Was I)
I could never win (Never win)

Never found a compromise
Collected lovers like butterflies
Illusions of that grand first prize
Are slowly wearin' thin
Susie, baby, you were good to me
Giving love unselfishly
But you took it all too seriously
I guess it had to end

(* Repeat)

Yeah baby, oh

Now you ask me if I'm sincere
That's the question that I always fear
Verse seven is never clear
But I'll tell you what you want to hear
I tried to give you all you want
But givin' love is not my strongest point
If that's the case it's pointless goin' on
I'd rather be alone

'Cause what I'm doin' must be wrong
Pourin' my heart out in a song
Owning up for prosperity
For the whole damn world to see
Quietly now while I turn a page
Act twenty's over without costume change
The principal would like to leave the stage
The crowd don't understand
