SAVE MY SOUL FROM THE JUNKYARD OF YOUR LOVE


WORDS & MUSIC: HANK ďHOLY ROLLERĒ RAY
ROOF MUSIC / WARNER CHAPPELL, 1990


Like a Venus on a velvet road
You walked right away into my life
And I gave my foolish heart to you
For you swore your love would be forever true

 

Oh, my love, I thought Iíd live in dreams
But those dreams quickly turned into nightmares
Ever since you came to say goodbye
Oh, lover doll, you broke that little old heart of mine

 

You kept saying words of love to me
But then I found you were the cheating kind
Thatís why I ask the angels up above
To save my soul from the junkyard of your love

 

Iíve walked the empty halls of tears and cries
But then again Iím prepared to see the light
Now that everything is said and done
Iím saying to myself, oh love, Iím glad youíre gone

 

Sure it was a lovely way to burn
As long as that fire burned inside of me
But now I ask the angels up above
To save my soul from the junkyard of your love
To save my soul from the junkyard of your love
Of your love
