Rick Springfield - Written In Rock Lyrics




On my way back from a wedding
I drove round some of the old streets
I got swept up by the memories
Of cold nights and warm sheets
I parked outside the house we'd lived in
I tried to think of all the pain
But all I remembered was the laughter
And the precious trust we can't reclaim

There are no second prizes
And there will be no consolation wreath
We may as well miss by a mile
As miss by the skin of our teeth
They all thought we were some sure thing
I had the bloody coat and wedding ring

But nothing's Written In Rock
I know I'm not the one
Was I just the great pretender
Written In Rock
There was no battle won
Only a mutual surrender
No guarantees, that's alright
If I was gonna stay,
I would have stayed all night
Bye bye love, you were so damn right
Nothing's Written In Rock
Nothing's Written In Rock

You finally learned the deep dark secret
That I knew you were waiting for
So I watched the death of innocence
Of the young dreamer at life's door
This world can tear your soul to pieces
If you give it half a chance
There are no rules to remember
There are no written steps to the dance

I don't believe in fate
I don't believe in blind luck of the draw
I don't believe in love
I mean I don't believe anymore
They all thought we were the real thing
I had the bloody coat and the wedding ring

But nothing's Written In Rock
I know I'm not the one
Was I just the great pretender
Written In Rock
There was no battle won
Only a mutual surrender
No guarantees, that's alright
If I was gonna stay,
I would have stayed all night
Bye bye love, you were so damn right
Nothing's Written In Rock
Nothing's Written In Rock

I remember you all dewy-eyed and breathless
Pointing the direction to the great promised land
I remember me all petrified and restless
Wondering what you were hiding in the other hand

Everybody keeps a lonely heart
And everybody gets that feeling
Everybody needs another heart
To give a little bit of healing to a battered soul

Oh, nothing's Written In Rock…

Nothing's Written In Rock
I know I'm not the one
Was I just the great pretender
Written In Rock
There was no battle won
Only a mutual surrender
No guarantees, that's alright
If I was gonna stay,
I would have stayed all night
Bye bye love, you were so damn right
Nothing's Written In Rock
Nothing's Written In Rock

Oh, nothing's Written In Rock…

    Miss by a mile or miss by the skin of my teeth.... Both ways it dont matter it's all the same..

  2. YankeeNH10

    There are no second prizes
    And there will be no consolation wreath
    We may as well miss by a mile
    As miss by the skin of our teeth

    Cutting truth of divorce. He is way under-rated as a song-writer.
