How to live without knowing what you are doing.

Lyrics

a city and a life and a girl Tuesday morning without any coffee and too many chores to do Along came Sally biking down the alley to show me her new tattoo She said hop on and I said alright and she took me to a place she knows A little speak easy down in the shadows where nobody I know goes I said you gotta be crazy she said hey don’t we all? So we got up and danced to an old time record until I started to fall Fallin’ like a priest in the city of angels or a soul on capitol hill Fallin’ like a star into smoke and ash or the buzz from a little white pill Fallin’ like a trucker looking for a load in an empty container world Fallin’ like a brick into the mix of a city and a life and a girl I did a little thinking, a little bit of drinking and I called Sally again I made my bed but I couldn’t sleep in it, so I said let’s be friends She started to take her shoes off and I said hey let’s be clear I like my fun but honestly hun that’s not why I brought you here She said never say never And I said I never do. So we got up and danced to an old time record Just like lovers do Fallin’ like a priest in the city of angels or a soul on capitol hill Fallin’ like a star into smoke and ash or the buzz from a little white pill Fallin’ like a trucker looking for a load in an empty container world Fallin’ like a brick into the mix of a city and a life and a girl
