lyrics

I like to stay out all night
And watch the freaks come to life
Run all the red lights I can
All the pretty faces
Are covered in paint
And the kids Are getting high out in the van
I get stuck to the pavement
Swallowed by the crowd
I get lost in all the green and the blue
They spit and they cuss
They discuss their views
They impose those dark secrets on you

But I can't hear myself think
I forget how to breathe through the smoke
Under a light, sweet red wine
It's so hard to put you down
Under a light, sweet fruit from the vine
It's so hard to put you down

I fall apart at the seams
Like an old tattered suit
Drift across all the lines on the floor
Ricochet off the surface like sonar
I keep an open tab at the bar
Tip my hat
Chew the fat
Get past the wisecracks at last
Little white lies and punchlines tonight
They bite and they scratch
They place bets on the match
And I keep a record of the score through the fight

Slow down
You don't have to speak
These empty spaces don't bother me
Seems like only yesterday
You were just another face in the crowd
Seems like only yesterday
But you know I see you now
I need you somehow
I need you somehow
