Roxy Music: In every Dream Home a Heartache

- erschienen 1973 auf dem Album “For your Pleasure” -



In every dream home a heartache

And every step I take

Takes me further from heaven

Is there a heaven?

I’d like to think so

Standards of living

They’re rising daily

But home oh sweet home

It’s only a saying

From bell push to faucet

In smart town apartment

The cottage is pretty

The main house a palace

Penthouse perfection

But what goes on

What to do there

Better pray there


Open plan living

Bungalow ranch style

All of its comforts

Seem so essential

I bought you mail order

My plain wrapper baby

Your skin is like vinyl

The perfect companion

You float my new pool

De luxe and delightful

Inflatable doll

My role is to serve you

Disposable darling

Can’t throw you away now

Immortal and life size

My breath is inside you

I’ll dress you up daily

And keep you till death sighs

Inflatable doll

Lover ungrateful

I blew up your body

But you blew my mind


Oh those heartaches

Dreamhome heartaches
