No Rehearsal

Play MP3

You take one step forward, two steps back
End up nowhere at all
Work your life, just to make a little difference
Makes no difference at all

Had your chance, it seems you blew it
Let it slip away
Time running short, love running out,
Never seen a different way

Acid days, wasted nights
It's a rock and role reversal
Southern smiles, Northern lights,
This real life is no rehearsal
No rehearsal
No rehearsal

Well, this is Scud City, Crud County
One step away from the grave
Mark time, 'til you get a little lucky
Lucky if you get away

No escape, you should know better
No place else to go
One for the road, anything for money
Nothing left for the show

Acid days, and wasted nights
It's a rock and role reversal
Southern smiles, Northern lights,
This real life is no rehearsal
No rehearsal
No rehearsal

Wasted effort, wasted days
Wasted all the time
Each day think it'll get a little better
Every day is still the same
Rain outside on my window pane
Brain just lost in space
Another day, and you get a little older
No more time to waste
No more time to waste
No more time to waste

Alan Pout, 1998
