about

"Roadkill" is the second single of the upcoming album «Longing Fever» (22.10.21) by Evelinn Trouble. After releasing her single « Higher Love » in April, she now shows another side of her universe, darker and confident.

lyrics

I am roadkill, in the way of your salvation
You getting yours by crushing mine
And in this frame of mind

Salvation’s hard to find
For the roadkill
Always in the wrong place
Never at the right time (Always, never)

While you own the moment
Your future wheel’s in motion, rolling
Roadkill stuck here in devotion
To a moment forever gone there on the pavement
See me waving, nothing’s new here, the dream fails
The heart aches, the soul shakes, the car don’t break
It hits and drives into the night, headlights fading into the sky
This bird will fly a thousand miles, this bird is

Damage control, side of the road
It is what it is
And what it is is a life by the side of the road
Dead, beat, crushed, low
Perspective versus circumstance
You will never get what you will never have so let go of your dreams and the ones that you love
If they haven’t already run off

It is what it is and what is is a series of failures, yeah
Trial, error, trial, error, error
Trial, error, error, error
And I can’t see it, not one single reason to go on and get up and try anything
So I lay on my back, let the dark night move in

Roadkill, don’t lie down on the pavement
There will be another crossing
Don’t you know it’s danger
To stop moving
Licking paws 'cause of a future lost
Just causes future loss
But it don’t run out unless you forever stay down

Don’t you, don’t you, don’t you stay down (I am roadkill)

I am roadkill, in the way of your salvation
You getting yours, you getting yours

Roadkill, get up from the pavement
There will be another crossing
Don’t you know it’s danger
To stop moving
Licking paws 'cause of a future lost
Just causes future loss
But it don’t run out unless you forever stay down
No, it don’t run out
(See the warning sign)
No, it don’t run out
(See the warning sign)
No, it don’t
