Bob Seger Lyrics

American Storm



Headin' out on some uncharted path

You soon turn back

It happens time and time again

You never seem to reach the end

Someone's out there on the street tonight

When things go wrong

He'll guarantee to make them right

If the price is right

Every time I look you're fallin' fallin'

Beaten by the wind

Every time I turn around he's there again

It's like a full force gale

An American storm

You're buried far beneath a mountain of cold

And you never get warm

It's like a wall of mirrors

You charge `em at full speed

You cover up - you hear the shattering glass

But you never bleed

You never feel the need

Everybody casts a certain light

A special gift

It's theirs to use for wrong or right

When you face the night

More and more we choose the easy way


We take no risks

We figure out which games to play

And how to make 'em pay

Suddenly the pressure's fallin' fallin'

Suddenly the storm is heading straight your way

It's like a full force gale

Atop a mountain of cold

You tell your story again and again

And it never gets old

It's like a wall of mirrors

You charge 'em at full speed

You cover up - you hear the shattering glass

But you never bleed

You face a full force gale

An American storm

You're buried beneath a mountain of cold

And you never get warm - no you never get warm

You face a wall of mirrors

You charge 'em at full speed

You cover up - you hear the shattering glass

But you never bleed

You never feel the need

Feel Like a Number



I take my card and I stand in line

To make a buck I work overtime

Dear Sir letters keep coming in the mail

I work my back till it's racked with pain

The boss can't even recall my name

I show up late and I'm docked

It never fails

I feel like just another

Spoke in a great big wheel

Like a tiny blade of grass

In a great big field

To workers I'm just another drone

To Ma Bell I'm just another phone

I'm just another statistic on a sheet

To teachers I'm just another child

To IRS, just another file

I'm just another consensus on the street

Gonna cruise out of this city

Head down to the sea

Gonna shout out at the ocean

Hey! It's me!!!

And I feel like a number

Feel like a number

Feel like a stranger

A stranger in this land

I feel like a number

I'm not a number

I'm not a number

Dammit I'm a man

I said I'm a man



Night Moves



I was a little too tall

Could've used a few pounds

Tight pants, points hardly reknowned

She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes

And points all her own sitting way up high

Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy

Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy

Workin' on mysteries without any clues

Workin' on our night moves

Trying' to make some front page drive-in news

Workin' on our night moves in the summertime

In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love oh no far from it

We weren't searching for some pie in the sky summit

We were just young and restless and bored

Living by the sword

And we'd steal away every chance we could

To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods

I used her she used me

But neither one cared

We were getting our share

Workin' on our night moves

Trying to lose the awkward teenage blues

Workin' on out night moves

In the summertime

And oh the wonder

Felt the lightning

And we waited on the thunder

Waited on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder

How far off I sat and wondered

Started humming a song from 1962

Ain't it funny how the night moves

When you just don't seem to have as much to lose

Strange how the night moves

With autumn closing in



Old Time Rock & Roll



Just take those old records off the shelf

I sit and listen to 'em by m'self

Today's music ain't got the same soul

I like that old time rock and roll

Don't try to take me to a Disco

You'll never even get me out on the floor

In 10 minutes I'll be late for the door

I like that old time rock and roll

Still like that old time rock and roll

The kinda music just soothes the soul

I reminisce about the days of old

With that old time rock and roll

Don't wanna hear 'em play a Tango

I'd rather hear some blues or funky old soul

There's only one sure way to get me to go

Start playin' old time rock and roll

Call me a relic call me what'cha will

Say I'm old fashioned say I'm over the hill

Today's music ain't got the same soul

I like that old time rock and roll



Roll Me Away



Took a look down a westbound road,

Right away I made my choice

Headed out to my big two-wheeler,

I was tired of my own voice

Took a bead on the northern plains

And just rolled that power on

Twelve hours out of mackinaw city

Stopped in a bar to have a brew

Met a girl and we had a few drinks

And I told her what I'd decided to do

She looked out the window a long long moment

Then she looked into my eyes

She didn't have to say a thing,

I knew what she was thinkin'

Roll, roll me away,

Won't you roll me away tonight?

I too am lost, I feel double-crossed

And I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right

We never even said a word,

We just walked out and got on that bike

And we rolled

And we rolled clean out of sight

We rolled across the high plains

Deep into the mountains

Felt so good to me

Finally feelin' free

Somewhere along a high road

The air began to turn cold

She said she missed her home

I headed on alone

Stood alone on a mountain top,

Starin' out at the great divide

I could go east, I could go west,

It was all up to me to decide

Just then I saw a young hawk flyin'

And my soul began to rise

And pretty soon

My heart was singin'

Roll, roll me away,

I'm gonna roll me away tonight

Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin',

Keep searchin' till I find what's right

And as the sunset faded

I spoke to the faintest first starlight

And I said next time

Next time

We'll get it right
