Just can't win Lyrics by Jimmy Nail

 

Just can't win by Jimmy Nail


Words and music by Jimmy Nail
you wake up in a dlfferent bed
forgotten every word you said
do you recognise the person next to you ?
you're sneeking down the backroom stairs
braving all Ihe public stares
what's a living legend supposed to do ?
I've been told that you're looking old
but you're still appearing well preserved to me
let them stare, let them lose their hair
'cos you've seen the movie, read the book
you've been there, done that, set that look for free
you keep trying but you just can't win
you keep breathlng but the air's too thin
keep knocking but you can't come in
keep trying but you just can't win
looking at your works of art
banging your peroxide heart
you get them in a lucky bag for free
you said you couldn't live without it
so what you gonna do about it ?
nostalgia's not the game it used to be
and I've been told about your bands of gold
but I have to say they cut no ice with me
silver chains that dangle down
and you're tryin' hard to beat the clock
dressed up shouting long live rock & roll
you keep trying but you just can't win
you keop breathing but the air's too thin
keep knocking but you can't come In
keep trying but you just can't win
