Van Halen lyrics

While Van Halen isn't band I normally think of as a "lyrics" band, they still have a few that have caught my ear over the years.

Runnin' With the Devil

I live my life like there's no tomorrow
And all I've got I had to steal.
Least I don't need to beg or borrow
Yes I'm living at a pace that kills.

I found the simple life ain't so simple
When I jumped out on that road.
I got no love, no love you'd call real
Ain't got nobody waiting at home .

Runnin' with the devil.

Ain't Talkin' About Love
I been to the edge
and there I stood an' looked down .
You know I lost a lot of friends there baby,
I got no time to mess around.
So if you want it got to bleed for it baby .
Yeah, got to got to bleed baby.
Ain't talkin' 'bout love .

My love is rotten to the core.

And the Cradle will Rock ...
At an early age he hits the street
and winds up tied with who he meets,
and he's unemployed.
His folks are overjoyed.
And the cradle will rock.
