"Mr Rock & Roll" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Macdonald....
So called Mr Rock And Roll
Is dancing on his own again
Talking on his phone again
To someone who tells him that his balance is low
He's got no where to go
He's on his own again

Rock chick of the century
Is acting like she used to be
Dancing like there's no one there
Before she never seemed to care
Now she wouldn't dare
It's so rock and roll to be alone

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

Mrs Black and White
She's never seen a shade of gray
Always something on her mind
Every single day
But now she's lost her way
And where does she go from here

Mr Multicultural
Sees all that one can see
He's living proof of someone
Very different to me
But now he wants to be free
Free so he can see

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

He says "I wish I knew you, I wish I met you
When time was still on my side"
She'll say " I wish I knew you, I wish I loved you
Before I was his bride"

And so they must depart
Too many more are broken hearts
But I've seen that all before
In TV, books and film and more
And there's a happy ending
Every single day

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

    General CommentIn an interview she said this song is about how people feel they need to fit in a certain group or be in a scene, and they should try to be themselves so they wouldn't miss the opportunity to meet other amazing people that they might never meet.

    Indeed, she has a unique and there some really good songs on her album.

    General CommentThis song also reminds me of my recent trip to Scotland (even though it was her most recent one; L.A., which was played a few times on the car radio while over there). Thinkpeace, she does have a very unique voice yes, and to me hearing a nice Scottish voice is much more appealing than hearing the rather irritating and over-accentuated accents from artists such as Kate Nash and The Arctic Monkeys.

    General CommentThis brilliant track makes me think of Greg Norman & Chris Evert i.e. two people a little past their prime & worn round the edges who get together later in life. the lyrics show a longing they convey that they had got together sooner - when they were younger and had less baggage - but I think the song still conveys the hope that you can find a certain magic with someone in later life.

    The bit that goes:

    And so they must depart,
    Two many more broken hearts.
    But I�ve seen that all before,
    In T.V, books, and film and more.
    And there�s a happy ending,
    Every single day.

    makes me think that they still have a fair bit of heartache & general angst to get through before they can find each other & have a last shot at happiness. Amy Mac is descibing their current situation as being a bit on the low but giving glimpses of a brighter future when they do get together.
