Manic Street Preachers - 4 Lonely Roads Lyrics

4 lonely roads
The terror it had flown
Never led you home

4 lonely roads
Got sunk into my heart
Then it fell apart

Staring with an idle eye
Measuring the pain inside
Darker hell stood up on high
Then disappeared without reply

4 lonely roads
I'm trapped inside the skin
Can't let love back in

4 lonely roads
The cities drunk and mute
Lost in your pursuit
(I tell them this)

Staring with an idle eye
Measuring the pain inside
Darker hell stood up on high
Then disappeared without reply
I don't know why...

(Three …Four…)

And if we can
Then we must
Hold our heads up
Learn to trust
It's up to you
It's up to us
Some dignity
A little love
A little love

  4. Gerrie

    Goosebumbs all around. And I am not Welsh at all...

  5. Frank Hoitz

    Diese Version ist genauso wie sie interpretiert wird genial!!! Die Studioversion ist leider schwach!

  6. Chameleon Chris

    I love manic street preachers but this is just dull and rubbish. The title track of the album is a masterpiece though.

  7. Tim Struik

    Vocal excellence.

  20. Michael Seymour

    that guitar is not quite in tune james !
    I'm being a trainspotter aint I .......ok , i'll piss off.


    Michael Seymour Guitar is completely in tune, as you can hear throughout all the verses. James just got his pinky finger wrongly placed in the bridge parts leading to this odd sounding strumming. He’s only human.
