Song Lyrics



The heat is so great

It plays tricks with the eye

It turns the road to water

And then from water to sky

And there`s a crack in the concrete floor

And it starts at the sink

There`s a bathroom in a gas station

And I`ve locked myself in it to think

And back in the city

The sun bakes the trash on the curb

The men are p*ssing in doorways

And the rats are running in herds

I got a dream with your face in it

That scares me awake

I put too much on the table

Now I got too much at stake

And I might let you off easy

Yeah I might lead you on

I might wait for you to look for me

And then I might be gone

There`s where I come from and

Where I`m going

And I am lost in between

I might go up to that phone booth

And leave a veiled invitation

On your machine

And you`ll stop me, won`t you

If you`ve heard this one before

The one where I surprise you

By showing up at your front door

Saying let`s not ask what`s next,

Or how, or why

I am leaving in the morning

So let`s not be shy

The door opens

The room winces

The housekeeper comes in

Without a warning

I squint at the muscular motel light

And say, hey, good morning

As she jumps her keys jingle

And she leaves as quickly

As she came in

And I roll over and taste the pillow with my grin

Well, the sheets are twisted and damp

The heat is so great

And I swear I can feel the mattress

Sinking underneath your weight

Oh sleep is like a fever

And I`m glad when it ends

And the road flows like a river

And pulls me around every bend

And you`ll stop me, won`t you...
