A Light, a Pen, and a Cigarette

lyrics

hey you with your sad eyes and your salty skin.
i kept my mouth shut 'bout how surprised i was when you wandered in.
now i'm down on the road with a lavender rose tucked 'tween my lips.
and i feel so much that i just don't know what to do with it.

hey you with your prickly eyes and your wispy breath.
babe why does it seem ... each time that you fade out that i fade in?
all the choirs of light on this drunken midnight cry in brave suspense.
it's a long, slow road that takes you back home then out again.

there's too much water to drink, and i can't help coming back for more.
too much water to drink, and i can't help coming back to pour.

hey you with your pursed lips, your ruby hips, and all your accidents.
babe why does it seem ... each time that you fade out that i fade in?
now i'm down on my hands with a light and a pen and a cigarette ...
and i wanna get close, but i just don't know how close i'll get.
