Rush Across The Road Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Of all the streets in the world
You walk down this one
And I see three hundred girls
But just want to kiss one

Someone that we've loved before
Is a love forever
But I never thought you'd floor me again
Maybe I should

Rush across the road
Leave my heavy load behind
It just takes a second to know your mind
And do what you've got to do
I'll rush across the road to catch up with you
Catch up with you

Some things come to an end
Before they're done with
Were we too young to be friends
That you just have fun with?

What were all our fights and fears?
'Cause I can't remember
And I've had enough of tears anyway
So I think I'll

Rush across the road
Leave my heavy load behind
It just takes a second to know your mind
And do what you've got to do
I'll rush across the road to catch up with you
Catch up with you

Time after time I'm reminded
That it's a crime to say I've lost
When I decline just to find out the final score
Why can't I pass the line and defy the sign
That says 'Don't Cross'?
Or what am I living for?

Funny how the blink of an eye
Can last forever
And how we think ourselves dry
When it's 'now or never'

If I wait for one more sigh
You could turn and see me
Then I'll never know what I would have done
So I'm going to

Rush across the road
Leave my heavy load behind
It just takes a second to know your mind
And do what you've got to do
I'll rush across the road to catch up with you
Catch up with you
