Supertramp Rudy Lyrics

Rudy’s on a train to nowhere, halfway down the line

He don’t wanna get there, but he needs time

He ain’t sophisticated, nor well-educated

After all the hours he wasted, still he needs time.

He needs time – he needs time for livin’,

He needs time – for someone just to see him.

He ain’t had no lovin’

For no reason or rhyme

And the whole world’s above him.

Well it’s not as though he’s fat-

No there’s more to this than that-

See he tries to play it cool-

Wouldn’t be nobodys fool.

Rudy thought that all good things comes to those that wait

But recently he could see that it may come too late.

All through your life, all through the years

Nobody loved, nobody cared.

So dim the light, dark are your fears

Try as I might, I can’t hold back the tears

How can you live without love, it’s not fair?

Someone said give but I just didn’t dare.

What good advice are you waiting to hear?

Hearing’s alright for them that’s all there

You’d better gain control now

You’d better show’em all now

You’d better make or break now

You’d better give and take now

You’ll have to push and shove now

You’ll have to find some love now

You’d better gain control now.

Now he’s just come out the movie.

Numb of all the pain,

Sad but in a while he’ll soon be

back on his train…
