And I, I wanna hang with the greatest, got a way to go, but it's worth the wait. No, you haven't seen the best of me, I'm still working on my masterpiece.”
If I was standing in your shoes I'd throw my hands straight up
And start explaining at the speed of light, not sound
How the words get some coffee came to mean get down.
And all the kings horses and all the kings yen
Couldn't stop the abracadabra that invites these men
And all the alleyways in Amsterdam could not compete
Against the wall street speed with which you leave your feet.”
I can't sleep in my bed
Everything is burning up inside me
I need something I can feel
Cigarettes and a driving wheel and
Oh my god, when you cross your legs beside me”
Lay down his hand like he was giving up the holy game of poker
And while he talks his dreams to sleep you notice there's a highway
That is curling up like smoke above his shoulder
It is curling just like smoke above his shoulder”
And I'm already missing the summer
Stockholm's cold but I've been told
I was born to endure this kind of weather
When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind
I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown.”
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow”
She said 'Child take your time.
Don't fall in love too quickly,
before you know your mind.'
She held me 'round the shoulders,
In a voice so soft and kind
She said 'Love can make you happy
and love can rob you blind.'
Here in California fruit hangs heavy on the vine.
There's no gold I thought I'd warn ya
And the hills turn brown in the summertime.”
