‘Rocks Off’ Song Lyrics

(Jagger/ 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 every 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 fuckin’ 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

Feel so hypnotised, can’t describe the scene
Its all mesmerised, all that inside me (don’t let go)
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 dreamingĀ (only get them off, get them off),
I only get my rocks off while I’m sleepingĀ (only get them off, get them off).
