The Rocket

from The Rocket by Phil Motion



Phil Motion

Well there ain’t nothing like a night in the city
When you got lots of money and not a care
It don’t happen often but when it does
I make the most of my thrills
When I can get them

I don’t break I just bend the rules a little
And walk with my shadow in my pocket
You think you can pick up what I’m putting down
Then, come on this rocket’s leavin’

Yes, I really got to go
And I can’t stay here long
You can come if you…
It’s ok if you don’t

Well, there ain’t nothing I like more than being on the move
Every day is a new day that I’m living
What I need I carry on my back
And make music with my hands

And I let my feet take me
Where I got to go
Yea, I can run fast and I can walk slow
The good life is a mix of come and go
So, come on this rocket’s leavin’


Well I’d rather be up than be down
I can fly this thing myself so I won’t be hangin’ ‘round
And it’s an open invitation to the right sound
Yeah it’s a straight and steady course for a life of rock-and-roll
yea, this rocket’s on a straight and steady course for a life of rock-and-roll
Come on this rocket’s leavin’
