There's enough of us here
To make a go at the money
If your intentions are clear enough
There's nobody watchin'

I have seen all the blacktop boys
Running through the streets tonight
They're chasing down all the west side girls
Jumpin' turnstiles for a free ride
But no one seems to hear the music
'Cause no one listens to the band anymore
So when the night is through
We lay down in spinning rooms
With love waiting outside the door

She thinks we're just makin' a movie
But this is almost real life
Where we bleed here
We bleed everywhere
He's got his hands on the wheel now
The great big wheel
He's turning everything around
But she's not coming down

. . .


There's a doubt
Like a plague
Burning down skyscrapers
In my brain
She says she knows everything
Except my name

We saw the ocean from the East coast
Coming for Coney Island
And all the freak-show ghosts
There's nothing to it, she says
Puts her hands against the midnight sky
The summer that Elvis died

There was a feast of hearts
This little world was ours
And on that radio played
A song with your name

I took the wheel with one hand
And drove through the Rockies
Without a plan
I kissed the dust from your lips
Then you kissed the Rio Grand

We saw the rivers and the black seas
Somewhere in Arizona
Was a Joshua tree
She said she loved me
What was I supposed to believe?

There was a feast of hearts
This little world was ours
And on that radio played
A song with your name

There was nothing to say
So I said something wrong
When there's something to lose,
Someone else to beat upon
There was nothing to say
Nothing to say
What took so long?

There was a feast of hearts
This little world was ours
And on that radio played
A song with your name

There was a feast of hearts
This little world was ours
And on that radio played
A song with your name

A song with your name

. . .


She lights it up like a million sparks
Shootin' from the hips straight through your heart
When she burns it down, that's my favorite part

Hip-hip-hooray for the dirty looks
How could any city sleep with all these crooks?
Come on take me home is all it took

Yeah, she goes around-round
She goes up, down, and she's goes around
Yeah, she goes around-round
I go up, down, and she goes around

The bourbon drinking hustlers are out tonight
One of them fools wants to make you his wife
But I know better I run from my life

Kiss me on the cheek with peach cream lips
Playing ???? on the jukebox, twirl your hips
Would you dance for me if my songs were hits?

Yeah, she goes around-round
She goes up, down, and she's goes around
Yeah, she goes around-round
I go up, down, and she goes around

Yeah, she goes around-round
She goes up, down, and she's goes around
Yeah, she goes around-round
I go up, down, and she goes around

Yeah, she goes around-round
She goes up, down, and she's goes around
Yeah, she goes around-round
I go up, down, and she goes around

Yeah, she goes around-round
She goes up, down, and she's goes around
Yeah, she goes around-round
I go up, down, and she goes around

. . .


Heart beats on the fault line
Of love and doubt and wasted time
I'm not here to show you up,
Break you down or change your mind
There's nothing we haven't burned
But still this fire makes no light and no heat
I have been around the world
Riding on the edge of something
'Til the dawn was weak

Come in darling, stay a while
Stay away from God and thieves
There is consolation in the human failure of our dreams
Come around on the far side
Of hate and hurt and misery
With my arms empty
Wait for you like soldiers at war
Like the cross waited for Constantine

Come and let her hear
The werewolves if she wants to
Howling at the moon
Waiting for the sweet, embraceable you
Come and let her steer
Against the tide with sad, slow tunes
She might have a way out of here

You've been standing here a while
Down among the city lights
Shuffle through the bright streets of St. Petersburg
Summer white nights
And I just wanna hold you up,
Face pressed to the velvet sky
So you can hear heaven answer
Every question you've ever had,
Save the ones you wanted me to ask

Come and let her hear
The werewolves if she wants to
Howling at the moon
Waiting for the sweet, embraceable you
Come and let her steer
Against the tide with sad, slow tunes
She might have a way out of here

She might have enough to fear

She is running away
With the dust and the bones of the last crusade
Reaching across these oceans and fields
With a silent sway
She is coming home on the last train
From this fallen kingdom

Come and let her hear
The werewolves if she wants to
Howling at the moon
Waiting for the sweet, embraceable you
Come and let her steer
Against the tide with sad, slow tunes
She might have a way out of here

She might have enough to fear

. . .


Have you heard the news today, oh boy
The broken heart's still unemployed
It's looking for a kick start tonight
But the world keeps spinning round, and won't go down
Without a fight

So I will drive you home
Though we're both drunk and stoned
Just follow the stars and speeding red cars
Into the great unknown

Oh beautiful for spacious skies
What a shitty soundtrack of our lives
If we run out of the good years
No, we are not afraid
We're just underpaid and waiting for the world to disappear

So I will drive you home
Though we're both drunk and stoned
Just follow the stars and speeding red cars
Into the great unknown

Oh, unseen Lord, tell me what you want from me
And I'll see what I can do about it
Oh, unseen Lord, aren't your hands awfully full
With Jesus Christ, Hare Krishna, Maimonides oh I wish you well
I love you but its complicated

I will drive you home
Though we're both drunk and stoned
Just follow the stars and speeding red cars
Into the great unknown

I will drive you home
Though we're both drunk and stoned
Just follow the stars and speeding red cars
Into the great unknown
Into the great unknown

. . .


There's a groom and a bride in my mind
Sending postcards and memories
There's a wicked witch
Suicide, cigarettes and climbing trees
There's a mountain and a valley and a little girl
Who is something sweet
She's a fortune-teller Sally
I'm a drunken clown, who always falls asleep

I was faking death to wake up new
'Cause I was too afraid to stand in my shoes
I called you on the telephone
Were you home?
It didn't sound like you

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you,
'Cause no one has a fucking clue
So let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'

There's a ghost in my seat kissing girls
And using up my stolen charm
He said he'll give it back, he was once an honest man
Before he bought the farm
I was seething with an impious rage
'Cause I was stuck inside a poemless page
I was conquered like the Byzantine on Halloween
And woke up in a cage

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you,
'Cause no one has a fucking clue
So let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you,
'Cause no one has a fucking clue

So let's be civilized
Not so petrified
Let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'

Let's make a deal that the end is the beginning
That any song on the radio's fine
That every page is another one shy of the last one

I've got a heart beating, breaking by design
Time is a trash heap, and taking forever
Let's make a deal that we all fall down together

It's the last day of the new age
There's nothing that I need
Nothing to change
And all that once was won, is rearranged
So can anyone here give me
A truth that isn't strange?

And all I want's you, please
I'm tired of running from everyone
All I want's you and me
So come on let's go home, wherever that means

Pick up the phone 'cause I'm calling from disaster
Down in a ditch with this satellite heart
I'll make a deal, but the devil is not what I'm after

Is it a secret if you tell me in your sleep?
Everything you do always taking forever
I'll take the fall, baby, leap into me; I am incomplete

It's the last day of the new age
There's nothing that I need
Nothing to change
And all that once was won, is rearranged
So can anyone here give me
A truth that isn't strange?

All I want's you, please
I'm tired of running from everyone
All I want's you and me
So come on let's go home, whatever that means

How can I say anything to this?
(Say what I want you to say)
Those words just die out on my lips
(Whisper the sweet silly lie)
This thing will wear out like a kiss

All I want's you

All I want's you, please
I'm tired of running from everyone
All I want's you and me
So come let's go home, wherever that means
All I want's you (All I want's you)
All I want's you

. . .


I caught you goin' one way but you're running for the other
The world is full of sweet things
You said, someone has to suffer
The bombs went off in London today
A new year has come to stay

You give me seven seasons
But I wanted you forever
Your lips are full of treason
When they say it's now or never
This is not a dividing line
Red nails make the dirt divine

And the monster's heart is the worst part
It bleeds for the great big nothing
When the monster's heart breaks
And all that escapes
The streets will be flooded with thieves

I was lookin' for you one place
You're always in another
Was there any good faith tangled in the covers?
If there were secret breaths to breathe
Why couldn't they speak to me?

The monster's heart is the worst part
It bleeds for the great big nothing
When the monster's heart breaks
And all that escapes
The streets will be flooded with thieves

I've been up here a hundred years
I'm not waiting for the ground
Floating high above these fears
There's no way I'm comin' down

Come and take all what you want
I'm not gonna keep you up
Not tonight

And the monster's heart is the worst part
It bleeds for the great big nothing
When the monster's heart breaks
And all that escapes
The streets will be flooded with thieves

The monster's heart is the worst part
It bleeds for the great big nothing
When the monster's heart breaks
And all that escapes
The streets will be flooded with thieves

The streets will be flooded with thieves
The streets will be flooded with thieves

. . .


Do you want it, comes in threes
Do you need it, it's not free
What if when you find out what you want
You don't find me?

I hope it all goes well
When it's laid out for you
I think you might get spooked
When the truth is all tattooed

You leave wondering where the world stopped short
And where they got through

Leave it to the experts
They know best
Renovate the framework
So you can sell the rest

Do you want it, it comes in threes
So come and count back to me
Do you need it, it's not free
So you gotta put it back from me

You leave wondering where the world stopped short
And where they got through

Leave it to the experts
They know best
Renovate the framework
So you can sell the rest

Yeah, you leave it to the experts
They know best
Renovate the framework
So you can sell the rest

Do you want it?
Do you want it?
Do you want it?
Do you want it?

Leave it to the experts
They know best
Renovate the framework
So you can sell the rest

Leave it to the experts
They know best
Renovate the framework
So I can stomach the rest

Looking back, 3rd Avenue, 586
I'm waiting in the doorway
I found your ring buried in a drawer
Underneath some letters from yesterday
Don't you wanna know how I've been?
I'm still running round looking for you and me
And anything so I can feel something

Looking out, 1606, 10th Avenue
I thought I heard your name
The leaves and rain paint pictures that we've seen before,
But they don't look the same
Don't you wanna know how I feel
Sleeping under the heel, jetlagged, sick, sad
Come on, let's cut a deal
So I can feel something

And everybody knows it's gonna be a long winter
And everybody thinks they're gonna go home with her
And everybody feels the same way one time
The same way, with the same rhyme
So where are you tonight?

Box of socks, garbage bags
And a shower drain filled with your brown hair
A fake Christmas trees, an Alabama snow globe
I really wish I didn't care
Don't you wanna know how it could have been
If you had just opened your mouth one time and said anything
So I could feel something

And everybody knows it's gonna be a long winter
And everybody thinks they're gonna go home with her
And everybody feels the same way one time
The same way, with the same rhyme
So where are you tonight?

Coming back, 586, 3rd Avenue
I'm waiting in the doorway
I found your ring buried in a drawer
Underneath some letters from yesterday
Don't you wanna know how I've been?
I'm still running round looking for you and me
And anything so I can feel something

And everybody knows it's gonna be a long winter
And everybody thinks they're gonna go home with her

And everybody knows it's gonna be a long winter
And everybody feels the same way one time
The same way, with the same rhyme
The same way one time
The same way, with the same rhyme
The same way one time
