Come and tell me everything,
Everything you wanted to hear,
Say it slow and say low this time,
All the words that would endear,
If I could say them clear,
If I could say them twice,

The streets are running red with hope,
Emptied out and cobblestoned,
The windows glaring shadows of your face,
Love and violence all intoned,
In a single word you'd throw,
Claiming to entice,

I won't stand for another trial,
No matter how it's worded or phrased,
Footprints are stretching on for miles,
I am walking around in sort of a daze,

Everyone looks familiar
when you haven't seen a friendly face for days,
And I'm still stuck in my ordinary ways,

Better leave it left alone,
Streaming out over the wire,
Fingers dancing nimbly to and fro,
Responding to a world of liars,
And they're dancing on a fire,
Burning through the ice,

My breath is floating on top of the air,
It's colder here than I can recall,
My feet are sore and soon to go bare,
I am walking around for the hell of it all,

Everything looks familiar
when you've walked for miles and found you've lost your way,
And I'm still stuck in all my ordinary ways.
