lyrics

Neon light down on Haight, rain shining up the street
Thereʼs a body on the sidewalk asleep
Iʼm stepping out, every night the city holds me
blinks her lights, tries to tell me you are here

I could stand to spend some time alone, bare my thoughts back to the bone
What you feel is real can sometimes change
When weʼre sleeping back to back donʼt move donʼt wake up
If you do we will be fighting fire with flame

Dream-like old fashioned film, 35 mil in my mind
your face washed out, flared in sunshine
Man donʼt wait around, light a smoke try to call me
you could never really know me, Iʼm not the same

You could stand to spend some time alone, give your thoughts room to roam
thereʼs nothing like being free and on the road
When weʼre sleeping spine to spine we could light up the night
Itʼs a shame my heart already has a home

I could stand to spend some time alone give my thoughts room to roam
Thereʼs nothing like being free and on the road
When weʼre sleeping spine to spine we could light up the night
Its a shame my heart already has a home

What you feel is real can change
