Orbison, Roy - Drift Away Lyrics




Day after day I'm more confused
So I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that's a game that I hate to lose
I'm feelin' the strain, ain't it a shame

Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
I'm countin' on you to carry me through

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along makin' me strong

Orbison, Roy Drift Away Comments
  1. Chris

    He sounds like Herbert from Family Guy

  2. GerMart

    Better than the original. Doesn't happen often but this is Roy Orbison we're talking about here. He can put an imprint on a song that eclipses what came before.

  3. Jacob Bandock

    Awesome song. I want to drift away to Roy's rock n roll.

  4. Gustavo Corrêa

    Gosto muito do refrão: I wanna get lost in your rock'n roll, porque remete a etimologia, ao sentido primitivo de rock'n roll, isto é, balançar e rolar, gíria para ato sexual, nos anos 50. "Quero me perder em seu requebrado", seria uma boa tradução livre.

  5. Gustavo Corrêa

    One of his best! "Miss you, Roy.

  6. Richie Betz

    My favorite version of "Drift Away."

  7. Antonio Dias

    One o f the best vocalists in rock and roll and crooners and country and whatever you want....amazing voice ...such purity...such loveliness.....

    Finally got a copy of Milestones on vinyl and wow, as always Roy never fails to deliver. This song is one of my favourites for sure!
