The Rolling People
The Verve Lyrics


I got one more life
Can you see it wasting away?
But I got a plan
Do you understand?

The drugstore wife
I was dealing soul and other white
I won't shake your hands
'Cause death has no plans
But here we are the rolling people
Can't stay for long
We gotta go

So come alive with the rolling poeple
Don't ask why
We just know

I'm on a big jet plane
With my briefcase and crime in my veins
I'll be the first to toast
To my rowdy soul

But here we are the rolling people
Don't ask why
We don't know

So come alive with the rolling people
Don't ask why
We just go now
Yeah

Don't even know which way I'm going to
The lights are on and I am feeling blue
I hope you know which way I'm going to fly
Thank you for my life
I said good night, good-bye

You see me going

But here we are the rolling people
Can't stay for long
We gotta go

So come alive with the rolling people
Don't ask why
We don't know now
Yeah

So come alive with the rolling poeple
Don't ask why
We just know

I'm on a big jet plane
With my baby's crime in my veins
I'll be the first to toast
To my rotten soul

But here we are the rolling people
Don't ask why
We don't know

So come alive with the rolling people
Don't ask why
We just go now

The older this album gets, the better it sounds.

One of the most underrated tracks ever written - box fresh even after 20+ years!

Mick Davey

Four horsemen by Aphrodites Child is darker better version.

jbraunger

Heard this album a million times... still sounds fresh.

Managed to catch Verve twice, absolutely criminal they arent 'bigger' than Oasis, Roses, Blur et al. Going from A Storm in Heaven to even Forth, aw fucking brilliant albums. Took me years to track down a copy of 'Storm' on vinyl for less than £100, now nicely sitting framed in my living room (was worth the money!). Fucking gold!
