Lyrics to True To Life

Lyrics to the song True To Life as recorded by Roxy Music.


So it gets to seven and I think of nothing
But living in darkness
And the diamond lady well she's not telling
I don't even know her name

It's amazing times have changed
In days of old
Imagination'd leave you standing
Out in the cold

Dancing city now you're talking
But where's your soul?
You've a thousand faces
I'll never know

True to life True to life

There are complications and compensations
If you know the game
Agitated in Xenon nightly
I'll take you home again

Travel way downtown in search of nothing
But the sky at night
And the diamond lady well she's not talking
Hey, that's alright

True to life True to life
True to life

So I turn the pages and tell the story
From town to town
People tell me be determined
Poor country boy

Too much luck and too much trouble
Much time alone
But arm in arm with my seaside diamond
I'll soon be home
