Only Rock & Roll
music/lyrics by aireene Espiritu. Copyright 2012.

The spell has not been broken, the haze still lingers on
So I set out on the road, searching for the one who knows the cure
From the desert of Las Vegas, I pass through Silver Lake
The central coast is calling, ‘fore I hit my San Francisco bay
The city used to be my lost and found.

But when I reached my hometown, the shops changed all their names
And the birds in every tree I pass, have new songs that they play
Nothing ever really stays the same. And then I hear a band, they start to play...

CHORUS
It was only rock & roll, only rock and roll
Only rock and roll, that brought me back
Only rock and roll, only rock and roll
Only rock and roll, that brought me back, brought me back.

The wizards gave me potions. I must’ve tried them all
But nothing could take away the gray, that loomed over my head
I know what it takes to make it rain.
And then I hear a band, they start to play...

CHORUS
It was only rock & roll, only rock and roll
Only rock and roll, that brought me back
Only rock and roll, only rock and roll
Only rock and roll, that brought me back, brought me back.
