Song Lyric Sunday : 12th August

Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is drive/driving.

This is a classic and absolutely brilliant to drive to with the volume well up!
Love the intro, and my foot is already tapping to the rhythm.
Welcome to the full version of Road to Hell by Chris Rea.

We’ll I’m standing by a river but the water doesn’t flow
It boils with every poison you can think of.
Then I’m underneath the streetlights
But the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows.
And the perverted fear of violence chokes a smile on every face
And common sense is ringing out the bells.
This ain’t no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the road to hell.
And all the roads jam up with credit
And there’s nothing you can do
It’s all just bits of paper flying away from you.
Look out world
Take a good look what comes down here
You must learn these lesson fast and learn it well.
This ain’t no upwardly mobile freeway
Oh no, this is the road
This is the road
This is the road to hell
Songwriters: Christopher Anton Rea

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
