Revolution (live) - Lyrics

Amplifiers & old guitars
Country music sung in bars
& when she sings the revolution's near
Beauty holds the microphone
& watches as we stumble home
& she can see the revolution now
Dirt & fish & trees & houses
Smoke & hands up women's blouses
Not like I expected it would be
Bubbles pop in every size
It's analyzed & criticized
& beauty knows that it is almost here
Beauty goes to her address
She shuts the door and climbs the stairs
& when she sleeps the revolution grows
Beauty rests on mattress strings
Wearing just her underthings
& when she wakes the revolution's here
& when she wakes the revolution's here

Writer(s): DAVID BYRNE
