Barlights
oleh: Fun



Never in all of my lifeHave I seen eyes as empty as these streets of my cityon a Saturday night,all the green of your eyes says "Go, leave it all behind."
But I don't need to be reminded a change is gonna come.I can feel it on the tip of your tongue.
And I feel alive.
We met up once we'd settled the sunBetween the heat and the work weekthe fear is we could use some sleepbut sleep to the superfluous man means better use for bedsand I'll bet I'm coming home alone tonight.
I don't need to be reminded that this is how it was.I moved on, I passed a billboard down my blockthat asks if I've had enough, and aloud I say "I've had too much,"when the truth is, I'm just getting started.
Now all the barlights are blinking in timeto Mexican music, it's taunting the pavementand I feel alive.
One of us sings, and one of us drinks,and one of us has nothing at all.So he calls us all sheepI'm the Little Bo Peep of the bunch.(I take their tales and I'm ready to go)The he swears he's gotta take this callMan, I get scared he's gonna leave us too soon.
We were the get rich quick kids,We never got it rightSo we settled for the center of townWhere all the rich white kids is out looking for a fightgot the blond one staring me down.And I really wanna take a swingI can't help but remember James DeanSee we are part of the few who agreethat hey, he lived life fastbut he died.He died.He died.
Me, I'm gonna live forever.
Now all the barlights are blinking in timeto Mexican music, it's taunting the pavementand for the first timein a long timeI feel alive
