Song Lyrics

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I hear you talking when I`m on the street,

Your mouth don`t move but I can hear you speak.

What`s the matter with the boy?

He don`t come around no more,

Is he checking out for sure?

Is he gonna close the door on me?

I`m always hearing voices on the street,

I want to shout, but I can`t hardly speak.

I was making love last night

To a dancer friend of mine.

I can`t seem to stay in step,

`Cause she come ev`ry time that she pirouettes over me.

And I only get my rocks off while I`m dreaming,

I only get my rocks off while I`m sleeping.

I`m zipping through the days at lightning speed.

Plug in, flush out and fire the f**kin` feed.

Heading for the overload,

Splattered on the dirty road,

Kick me like you`ve kicked before,

I can`t even feel the pain no more.

But I only get my rocks off while I`m dreaming, (only get them off)

I only get my rocks off while I`m sleeping. (only get them off)

Feel so hypnotized, can`t describe the scene.

Its all mesmerized all that inside me.

The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.

Chasing shadows moonlight mystery.

Headed for the overload,

Splattered on the dirty road,

Kick me like you`ve kicked before,

I can`t even feel the pain no more.

But I only get my rocks off while I`m dreaming (only get them off, get them off),

I only get my rocks off while I`m sleeping (only get them off, get them off).

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Stewart was removed from the official line-up in 1963 but continued as occasional pianist until his death in 1985. Jones departed the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who remained until 1975. Subsequently, Ronnie Wood has been on guitar in tandem with Richards. Following Wyman's departure in 1993, Darryl Jones has been the main bassist. Other notable keyboardists for the band have included Nicky Hopkins, active from 1967 to 1982; Billy Preston through the mid 1970s (most prominent on Black and Blue) and Chuck Leavell, active since 1982. The band was first led by Jones but after teaming as the band's songwriters, Jagger and Richards assumed de facto leadership.
