Billy Idol Rat Race Lyrics

Last updated: 04/19/2007 11:00:00 AM

Wake me from my sleep
A cautionary tale
A walk in infancy
A way to derail
I wanted to be free
and I wanted only you
The walls are falling down

And somebody says
Ah give a little love,
Give a little love
But take your time

Somebody sighs
Yes, give a little love,
Give a little love
But take your time

Chorus
A private life
C’mon now
I said livin’
It gets to be
Just like a rat race
Rat race
C’mon
I’m a –read between the lines
Fierce struggle
A natural one
A tough job
Gets to be
Just like a rat race
Rat race
C’mon I’m a locked up in myself

Check before rising
Check before we work
I Childproof the scene
No screams can be heard
The roof is caving in
And The space between our hearts
The walls are falling down

And somebody says
Ah give a little love,
Give a little love
Take your time

Somebody sighs
Yes, give a little love,
Give a little love
But take your time

Chorus
It’s a rat, it’s a rat, it’s a rat race
It’s a rat, it’s a rat race
It’s a rat, it’s a rat, it’s a rat race
It’s a rat race

Aah life
Living in a rat race
C’mon

Hmm, life
Are you living in a rat race?
C’mon
Here inside yourself

Repeat Chorus twice

I’m locked up in myself
I’m locked up in myself
