Rock and Roll Love Affair

She believed in fairy tales and princes
He believed the voices coming from his stereo
He believed in rock and roll
She left her past and those lilly white fences
And headed out to Hollywood in search of her soul
But she had to pay the toll (yes she did)
They were bound to find each other
He needed proof, she needed a brother
That’s when stars collide
When there’s space for what you want
And your heart is open wide
Wait a minute
He gave up women for the stripes of the road
And learned the meaning of grace
That’s when his cup overflowed
And she said: “Hello”
He said “My faith keeps me from willing
But you know that I’m able
And if there’s some room
I’d like to sit at your table”
She said “It’s tight, but I think I can fit you in”

This kind of love don’t come from a prayer
Ain’t talking rebound, born of despair
Yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed
Two people in love, with nothing but the road ahead

She believed in fairy tales and princes
He believed in jazz, rhythm and blues
And this thing called soul
He believed in rock and roll
Hear me
She wanted to see her name appear on the big screen
He just wanted to hear her scream his name
Can you scream my name? Do you know what I mean?

Rock, rock, love affair
