Rockville Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Looking at your watch a third time
Waiting in the station for the bus
Going to a place that's far, so far away
And if that's not enough

Going where nobody says hello
They don't talk to anybody they don't know

You'll wind up in some factory
That's full time filth with nowhere left to go
Walk home to an empty house
Sit around at night all by yourself

Though it might sound strange but I believe
You'll be coming back before too long

So don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year

At night I drink myself to sleep and pretend
I don't care that you're not here with me
'Cause it's so much easier to handle
All my problems if I'm too far out to see

But something better happen soon
Or it's gonna be too late to bring me back

Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year

It's not as though I really need you
If you were here I'd only bleed you
But everybody else in town only wants to bring you down
And that's not how it ought to be

Oh, I know it might sound strange but I believe
You'll be coming back before too long

Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year

Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year
