Handwritten Lyrics

"Out Of Control" (live from Boston '81 edit)

This one's called Out Of Control
Answer me, I go, see ya

Monday morning, eighteen years of dawning
I said how long, I say how long
It was one dull morning, I woke the world with bawling
I was so sad, they were so glad

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You said it was out of control

Boys and girls to school and girls
They make children, not like this one

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You said it was out of control
I was of the feeling it was out of control
You said it was out of control

You've been standing, I've been waiting
While I got, you said good eye
I will say so, the sky

Out of control, out of control
Out of control
I fought fate, there's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood, it's in his childhood
One day I'll die, the choice will not be mine
Will it be too late, you can't fight fate

I was of the feeling it was out of control
He said it was out of control

Thank you, thank you
