my lyricsbox
I heard you on the wireless back in '52
Lying awake, intent and tuning in on you
If I was young, it didn't stop you coming through
Oh-a oh

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

Oh-a oh
I met your children
Oh-a oh
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember, the jingles used to go...

Oh-a-oh
You were the first one
Oh-a-oh
You were the last one

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone too far
Oh-a-a-a oh
Oh-a-a-a oh

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone too far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VCR

(You are a radio star)
(You are a radio star)

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star)
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star)
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star)
This song is from the album "The Age Of Plastic".
