Look Away Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I slept with Sable when she was 13
Her parents were too rich to do anything
She rocked her way around L.A.
'Til a New York guy carried her away

Look away, look away

Now, he was blond and she was dark
They called him Thunder 'cause he had the spark
The dream he dreamed was straight and pure
But the confusion of life was gonna get him for sure

Look away, look away

They shared their clothes and their cowboy boots
Left them all over the floor while they dyed their roots
They live the dream and they went non-stop
They did okay 'til the band broke up

Look away, look away
Look away, look away
Look away

Unfortunately, the needle broke
Their rock and roll love like a bicycle spoke
I found her in a back street with her looks half gone
She was sellin' something that I was on

Look away, look away

Now, Thunder and me did not part friends
What we done once, I wouldn't do again
So he stayed with the pure dream and followed the moon
Till the drugs in his body made his mind a cartoon

Look away, look away

So a few years later Thunder died broke
Sable had a baby back at her folks
Me, I went straight and serious too
There wasn't much else that I could do

I look away, look away

So now that I'm straight, I'm settled too
I eat and I sleep and I work like you
I got lots of feelings but I hold them down
That's a way I can cope with this shitty town

I look away, look away
Look away, look away
