Real Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Paula came from Washington with long golden hair
Twenty eight dollars in a fake silk purse and a leather skirt to wear
Shane came from Dublin town from the old world so green
Counterfeit ticket in to JFK in the land of his dreams

Street life's the only life, they take a walk in the park
Even though they only met that day, they were lovers by dark
Laid out on the morning skies, he puts a ring on her hand
He said, "Listen babe, we gotta take what's ours, do it or die"

Quit dreaming, this is real life baby
Real life's the only life, what's it all about
Quit dreaming, this is real life baby

Way out on the dock that night the color is red
23rd victim of a gangland, war takes his last breath
Outside the sister cried, she said, "The whole worlds so mean
Heavy weight killer in the ring, turns killing machine"

Quit dreaming, this is real life baby
Real life's the only life, what's it all about
Quit dreaming, this is real life baby

All my love, you're my all
They way you move, you're in control
The way you talk, the way you dress
Your hands, your touch, your sweet caress

All my love, you're the best
Every little thing that I possess
It's all emotion when you take control
I can feel wild horses running in my soul

Oh my love, all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy
If this is going to kill us, then let it go
Quit dreaming, this is real life baby

Up high above a desert sky
Where the space shuttles scream
Sixteen men from a dying earth
Take their last dream

Quit dreaming, this is real life baby
Quit dreaming, this is cheap life baby
Real life's the only life, what's it all about

Quit dreaming, this is cheap life baby
Your eyes, your lips, the shape of your mouth
It's a sweet life baby

All my love, you're my all
The way you move, the way you go
I'm all emotion when you take control
I can feel wild horses running in my soul

All my love, you're all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy
The way you move, you're in control
Quit dreaming, this is real life baby
